The Pink Panther car was a model shown in the series of comedy films under the same name which began with the release of The Pink Panther (1963). Most of the films were directed by Blake Edwards, with theme music composed by Henry Mancini.

The first film in the series had an animated opening sequence, created by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises and set to the theme music by Henry Mancini, which featured the Pink Panther character. This character, designed by Hawley Pratt and Friz Freleng, was subsequently the subject of its own series of animated cartoons.


The Pink Panther animated shorts were produced between December 18, 1964 to December 31, 1978 by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises (DFE Films).

Theme from the TV Series “The Pink Panther Show” (1969-1979) was composed by Doug Goodwin, Walter Greene and William Lava.

The car was designed by none other than Jay Ohrberg, the same who produced other famous movie and television vehicles including Knight Rider K.I.T.T., Back To The Future DeLorean, 1966 Batman Batmobile, 1989 Batman Batmobile, Dukes of Hazzard General Lee, Starsky & Hutch Ford Gran Torino and even the Flintstones car.
