Warning about DVD collection

Our 6- and 8-year-olds loved these cartoons, and it was a kick for me to see episodes I hadn't seen since childhood. However, please be aware that in addition to the smoking mentioned in the main review, the complete collection on DVD contains episodes that deal comically and blatantly with alcoholism and drunkeness. Went over my kids' heads at the time, but I was waiting for some awkward questions.

Gun use!

I watched one partial episode called "Pink Stamps" because my 8 year old and her friend saw the pink panther character and asked about the show. I did not recall it being objectionable from my younger days, but within 2 minutes, the inspector and panther were blasting each other with bazookas. Oops! I was horrified that my daughter and friend saw this, on top of the smoking! The setting was also a department store in this episode.

a clean and worry-free choice

Although the cartoons are obviously dated because there's no dialogue, and while there's generally not much of a plot, it's good and clean for kids (and adults) who enjoy this type of program. Also, the music, composed by Henry Mancini, can't be beaten. The only thing that parents could potentially find objectionable is the use of cigars, something that wasn't frowned on when these cartoons were made in the 1970s. That is something that parents will want to explain to their children if the issue or question ever comes up.

Great for kids if you watch with them

My 4yr old absolutely loves Pink Panther and finds him hysterical. Granted, yes, it does have pipe and cigarette smoking, but you'll find those in real life. Also, having an exploding cigar is a bit of a deterrent from smoking. If you're sensitive to guns, I think there's some guns in there but if you're a responsible parent watching this with your kids, you can explain everything in there.

Can't recommend it for very little kids.

The Inspector still has cigars blowing up in his face. Ixnay on the cigars.
