Kino Lorber - re-releasing the Pink Panther cartoons on DVD and Bluray 31 Jan 2017




The Pink Panther Cartoon Collection Vol. 1 (1964-1966)
20 shorts in chronological order - All with original audio (no laugh tracks) and all received additional DRS and dirt removal
Audio commentaries for selected films, by author Mark Arnold, historian Jerry Beck, filmmaker Greg Ford, cartoon writer William Hohauser, music scholar Will Friedwald, and veteran DePatie-Freleng story-man Bob Kartz - Interspersed throughout find archival sound-bites from animation pioneer and DePatie-Freleng Enterprises co-founder, Friz Freleng himself.

I've considered picking up the old set a dozen times, but never pulled the trigger. Watching some of the shorts online, they can be amusing, but not sure it's something I need to own.

So there's going to be six volumes? The DVD set has all 124.

Frankly, the best Panther cartoons should mostly included within that first 20, so this first volume might be all you really need. I bought the complete set for a great price, but after watching the whole thing I realized that virtually all of the best ones -- the "classics" per se -- were on the first two discs, so I sold the big set and just bought the 2-disc Vol. 1 DVD collection ("Pranks in the Pink"). The only concern I have is that set has 27 cartoons, while this Blu-Ray has only 20, so guess I'll have to see if #'s 21-27 were particularly memorable.
