The Pink Panther
MGM got a lot of mileage out of Blake Edwards’ “Pink Panther” series. Five films with Peter Sellers (including a 6th after his death with unused footage and stand-ins to help complete it), one with Alan Arkin, two one-offs with Roger Moore and Roberto Benigni and a rebooted series in the aughts with Steve Martin. Adjusted for inflation, the movies made a collected $875 million worldwide. But what about the signature cartoon Pink Panther himself? It was a cartoon in the ‘70s, but not fully exploited on the big screen. Hmmm… we smell a new franchise.

Blake Edwards, the creator behind such comedy classics as "The Pink Panther" series (the good Peter Sellers versions, not the egregious Steve Martin films), the still underrated "The Party," "10," and "S.O.B.," has died at the age of 88.
