The Pink Panther refers to a series of American comedic films which feature the bumbling French police detective Jacques Clouseau. The role was originated by and is most closely associated with Peter Sellers, and most of the films were directed and co-written by Blake Edwards, with theme music by Henry Mancini.
"The Pink Panther" itself is a large and valuable (and fictitious) diamond which is the macguffin of the first film in the series. It bears that name because the flaw at its center, when viewed closely, is said to resemble a pink panther. The phrase reappears in the title of the fourth film, The Return of the Pink Panther, in which the theft of the diamond is again the center of the plot, the film in which Sellers returned to the role after a one film hiatus. The phrase has been used for all the subsequent films in the series, even when the jewel does not figure into the plot.
The first film in the series had an animated opening sequence set to the theme music by Henry Mancini that featured The Pink Panther cartoon character. This character would get its own series of animated films (as well as being featured in the opening of every film in the series except A Shot in the Dark) and come to be known simply as "The Pink Panther".
The cartoon series' generally centered on the same idea, of the Panther trying to paint things in his own pink color. This theme is hinted at in the original film opening, as the Panther tries to interpose himself, his name and his color here and there.
The Pink Panther cartoon character also appears at the very end of the first film, intermixed with live-action footage of a car driving through the streets of Rome, and holding up a scroll with "THE END" in pink letters.
