The Pink Panther in: Olym-Pinks, is an animated sports-themed special which first aired on ABC on February 22, 1980 to coincide with the 1980 Winter Olympics. This was the final Pink Panther cartoon to be produced by DePatie–Freleng Enterprises as well as the last Pink Panther production involving creator Friz Freleng before his departing to return to Warner Bros. Animation.
In Lake Placid, New York, the Pink Panther and the little man are in a series of Winter Olympic games. After several comical mishaps including being chased by a piano that seemingly wants his head on a silver platter surrounded by lettuce, and an upside-down chase through the snow after falling off a ski lift, the panther wins the Gold medal while the little man earns a Silver.
On November 6, 2007, Olym-pinks was released alongside Pink at First Sight and A Pink Christmas on the DVD collection The Pink Panther: A Pink Christmas from MGM Home Entertainment/20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
