Contrary to the title, The Pink Panther was not a character in the comdey films that featured the bumbling French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau. However, when you mention the Pink Panther, that is what everyone remembers about the animated opening comedy sequence to Henry Mancini Pink Panther theme music! The Pink Panther actually represents the the large pink diamond that is shown in the original movie and then again in “The Return of The Pink Panther”. The title name was continued to be used for all subsequent films regardless if they were about the pink diamond.
The Pink Panther is a much loved character by all ages! I enjoyed creating my interpretations of the famous characters! Every needle felted character is unique. I created my own sewing patterns to perfectly fit Inspector Clouseau with his derby, pants and overcoat as well as the top hat and cane for The Pink Panther. These creations were auctioned on Ebay in 2012.
