Pink Panther and Pals is an animated television series based on the classic DePatie-Freleng Panther shorts from the 1960s, produced for Cartoon Network by Rubicon Studios in association with MGM Television. The show premiered on Cartoon Network on March 7, 2010 at 7:30am, presented in both HD and SD. The series had its UK premiere on Boomerang on April, 19 at 4pm. The show is composed of two seven-minute Pink Panther shorts with a seven-minute Ant and the Aardvark short in between. As of January 2012, Pink Panther and Pals is shown on Boomerang (USA).
The Pink Panther 
The Pink Panther shorts are reminiscent of the classic DePatie-Freleng Panther shorts from the 1960s and the 1970s, from art direction, silent acting, musical scoring, and story lines. The Pink Panther remains silent throughout the show, and has been aged down as a teenager. The Panther also gains a sidekick named Hoarse, based on the horse he had troubles with in Pinto Pink and Pink Valiant. The panther's enemy The Little Man has been renamed to "Big Nose" for this series with vocal effects provided by Alex Nussbaum. The Little Man's canine companion Dog has been reintroduced in this version.
Ant and the Aardvark 
The Ant and the Aardvark shorts are based on the classic DePatie-Freleng shorts also by the same name. In this version, the Aardvark (Eddie Garvar, in the style of John Byner) appears to be the same age as his classic counterpart, the Ant (now voiced by Kel Mitchell) has been aged down like the teenage Pink Panther; however, he is never called "Charlie" (as his classic counterpart). The locations and artistic style of the show have been reinvented for this release.

Ant eventually finds it before losing it to the others, who are in service to Aardvark, thinking he's Awful Aardvark. Confusion arises when they see the two aardvarks, who battle to determine which is Awful. Aardvark is discovered as the phony, but Awful finds himself fearful of Awful Ant (also having a moustache), who orders him to clean up the jungle after the battle. The other animals then chase Aardvark after he deceived them.||Pinkular Mechanics||Pink Panther's scooter breaks down, so he tries to repair it. He finds a couple of gremlin-like creatures in the engine and tries to remove them. Eventually they leave, only to learn that they get bigger when they're in contact with water. They run wild in the city, eating all sorts of metal in their path, and get even larger when Big Nose tries to spray them with a fire hydrant. Afterward, they're big enough to begin eating the entire city, but Pinky has the solution to get them back down to size by using a hair drier to shrink them down.||August 19, 2010|

A battle ensues with Big Nose losing against Pinky in the final number and Panther closes out the concert with his harmonica.||Shutter Bugged||People participating in a photo safari arrive in the jungle to take pictures of the animals. They think Ant is a rare striped species of insect, impeding Aardvark's efforts to make a meal of him. The two eventually tire of the people's presence, so they each devise a way to get rid of them, resulting in Aardvark getting stuck in a snare trap and Ant having to clean up after the safari ends. Ant leaves Aardvark stuck in the tree, saying he'll allow their chase to resume in two weeks after all the trash is removed.||Astro Pink||Space villain Big Nose shrinks several planets in the galaxy in order to make a personal marble collection. He collects a mound of soil from Earth before adding it to his collection as well. Pink Panther, who was in the mound, is the only one who's normal-sized enough to save Earth and the other planets against the evil space villain. Once he dons a space suit, he's able to utilize it to escape Big Nose and restore the planets to their normal size, and becomes a hero in the process.||August 20, 2010|

But when his dog breaks it and Pinky gets the blame, he decides to use the time machine to get the same statue. However, his use of the machine results in him going through various time periods, including prehistoric, ancient Rome, and eventually Egypt, where he's able to get the statue. After a brief stint in the future, he returns home to the present where he presents Big Nose with the statue. However, it shatters again, and Pinky finds he went to all that trouble for nothing since the scientist had several of the same statues in his cabinet.||Quittin' Time||After Ant can readily anticipate Aardvark's every efforts to catch him and he fails in one last try, Aardvark decides to quit chasing him and take up various hobbies to keep himself occupied. He tries stamp collecting, golf, and butterfly hunting. But all are unsuccessful since Ant continuously provokes him to the point that Aardvark regains his desire to chase him again.||Reel Pink||Parodies Charlie Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy.
