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.
