This series contains examples of:
Common to all series
- Real Men Wear Pink: it is clear that the Panther is a guy.
1964-1980 Original Series
- Art Evolution
- Ambiguously Jewish: The Aardvark and, to a lesser extent, The Little Man.
- In an episode of The New Pink Panther Show, the Aardvark (as a Tarzan parody) screams "Oy Vey!" in a Tarzan-like manner.
- Cool Cat: The Panther is the quintessential example, of the "never has to lose his cool" variety - even in cartoons where he's the Butt Monkey, he always keeps his silent wit and rhythmic step.
- Lampshade Hanging
- Limited Animation: Although it improved.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Dean Martin for the Ant and Jackie Mason for the Aardvark
- The Little Man is a caricature of Friz Freleng.
- Synchronized Swarming: One cartoon has the title character annoy a swarm of bees. While taking cover inside a house blocks them, the bees take a form of a drill, and create a hole in the door that they fly through.
- Ticker Tape Parade: In "Pink of the Litter", Pink is hired to clean all the litter in town. After he does, he is given a tickertape parade... and then has to clean up after it.
- The Voiceless: Except on two occasions, and always with a Celebrity Star.
- Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist
The Pink Panther and Sons
- A Day in the Limelight: We barely saw the Pink Panther.
The New Pink Panther Show (1993-1996 series)
- Alternative Foreign Theme Song: The Japanese version has a different ending theme.
- An Aesop: Occasionally the 1993 series would venture into it in some episodes.
- Art Shift: The episodes Hamm-N-Eggz and the final two episodes of the series listed here show why. The Texas Toads - from 1995, is an example.
- Hamm-N-Eggz looks more like a 1990s Nickelodeon animation than a DePatie-Freleng/MGM production.
- Art Evolution: Compare the early 1993 episodes with the 1995 season.
- Be Careful What You Wish For
- BLAM Episode: Hamm-N-Eggz, Voodoo Man, 7 Manly Men.
- Catch Phrase: Thiiiink Pink!'
- Celebrity Paradox: Featuring an unvoiced cameo of Tara Strong.
- The Complainer Is Always Wrong: The Aardvark is this.
- A Day in the Limelight: Happened a few times.
- Deadpan Snarker: The Aardvark (but he is voiced by John Byner, so Truth in Television then?)
- Demoted to Extra: After the episode A Nut At The Opera, the panther did not appear for a full 4 episodes, excluding Driving Mr. Pink.
- Eat the Camera: Pinky, going into the commercial break for "Downhill Panther."
- Expy: Manly Man is an expy of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
- Fanfic: Yes, this is one of the most unlikely candidates!
- Fan Service: The dark-skinned policewoman who has no name, and only appears in Superpink's Egg-Cellent Adventure and Trains, Pains and Panthers is considered an animated version of this trope.
- Not to mention the endless Deviant ART pictures of her.
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Could have its own page.
- Also, the episode 7 Manly Men, which has Unfortunate Implications of its own (given the subject matter and characters involved).
- Hamm-N-Eggz had a few of its own, despite Animal Protagonists.
- Identical Grandson
- Lampshade Hanging: One of the show's heavily-used tropes. In-Universe on the show it's a trope of legend.
- Lower Deck Episode: All episodes for The Inspector (Clouseau), and one with Voodoo Man, another for Manly Man, and the final two episodes, Texas Toads and Ant and Aardvark.
- Parental Bonus: Some episodes like Lifestyles of the Pink and Famous. And 7 Manly Men as well.
- Shout-Out: In the episode 7 Manly Men the episode parodies Village People, and YMCA.
- Plus the episode Pinky Rider, a direct shout-out to Dennis Quaid's Easy Rider.
- Straight Gay: Possibly Manly Man.
- Suddenly Voiced: The Pink Panther himself.
- Tara Strong: Plus a Captain Ersatz/Expy of her as well, creating a semi-Celebrity Paradox.
- Third Person Person: Voodoo Man, who refers to himself this way.
- Two Shorts: Except the final episodes, which are three shorts.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: The Little Man's family.
- The Unintelligible: Voodoo Man can be this at times.
- What Exactly Is His Job?: Well, for The Little Man in this series, anyway...
- Witch Doctor: Played for Laughs. Voodoo Man is this.
The Pink Panther and Pals (2009 onward)
