Pink-In is the 70th cartoon produced in the Pink Panther series. A total of 124 6-minute cartoons were produced between 1964 and 1980.

Plot[edit]

The Pink Panther spends the day in his attic rummaging through an old trunk. Inside, he finds several old letters from his former Army friend, Loudmouth Louie, which causes the panther to reminisce about his past. Firstly, Louie says that he wouldn't forget the day the panther joined the Army (G.I. Pink) then reminds him of a short-lived job the panther had as a railway porter (Pink in the Clink). Next, Louie reminds the panther of when the latter was offered the former's apartment whilst Louie was out of town; aside from a small shower mishap the panther had, Louie said he had forgiven him for ruining his toothbrush (Pink Pajamas) and also for taking a single egg left in the refrigerator (Pickled Pink), as well as reminding him of the night he accidentally got into a neighbour's apartment when he came home late (also Pink Pajamas). Then Louie mentions about when the panther went into his "Super Speedy Messenger Service" business when he left, one delivery of which was continuously stymied by a dog (The Pink Package Plot). Louie finishes the letters there, adding a postscript asking if the panther ever did deliver the package.

Production[edit]

Pink-In was the first "best of" entry in the Pink Panther series. This was done by DePatie-Freleng Enterprises (DFE) in an effort to both save the studio money as well as produce enough new entries in time for television broadcast on The Pink Panther Show.[1] Another benefit of recycling scenes from previous entries was that it would cost DFE half of what a normal episode costs to produce, but would still allow them to sell syndication rights at full price.[1]

Pink-In recycles clips from the following episodes:

Laugh track[edit]

The Pink Panther Show contained a laugh track when the Pink Panther cartoons were broadcast on NBC-TV. Currently, the laugh-tracked version airs on Poland channels TV 4, TV 6.
