Pink Panther Country

He's not just a pink cartoon character... he's also a country-western musician.

Check out this beautiful picture disc I picked up at the 2000 Austin Record show. It's Pink Panther, that loveable cartoon character from the 70's, except now he's all about country/western music. Where did that idea come from? Was this kind of music popular with the kids back then?

What struck me as odd when I first saw this album is the fact that Pink Panther, if memory serves, was mute in the cartoons -- he never said a word. Yet here he is with a record. True to his cartoon image, the singing on this album isn't by the Panther himself, but by a contingent of backup vocalists who accompany the "Panther"'s various guitar strummings. In between the musical numbers, a helpful narrator keeps the kids up to date with the album's plotline.

The graphics on this album are everything a picture disc should be: crisp, bright, and wonderfully cartoony. Be sure to click the image for a closer look.

Pssst! Hey "Kerry/Edwards in '04"! I don't know whether you've noticed or not - but they LIKE Bush there in Ohio! Act natural and maybe we can blend in with the rest of them. Here! Hide behind these "Die Faggot!" protest signs and maybe we can sneak outta here unnoticed. Now bow down and kiss the cross.

What would Jesus do?

That's right!

RUN for it! (11-11-2004)

"Kerry is a COMMIE Pinko!"???
Shows what you know! While Kerry was bravely defending our country in Vietnam, Dubya Bush was cheerleading like a bitch and Cheney was dodging the draft as well. Pinko? Only a dumbass would vote for dubya bush! (10-28-2004)

Typos have utterly besieged me. They're everywhere!They're everywhere! I meant "word" instead of "words" & "these" instead of "this" as well as "ever" vs. "every" regarding my first response. And now here's the part where I ask you if you care. (10-13-2004)

Joli (purplevioletsquishies@comcast.net) says:
I meant "ever" tinier vs. "every." Also, the latchkey point is totally irrelevant because the cardboard episode was exclusively on Saturday mornings. There were just so many TV things I could not show my mom after school that I didn't know where a school day ended & the weekend day began. It's all so sad. (I cry wetless tears). (10-13-2004)

Joli (purplevioletsquishies@comcast.net) says:
I was an avid fan of the Pink Panther as a child growing up in the 70's. In all the episodes I basked in front of, I actually can, in all honesty, say I heard the silent pink stately one utter a single word. I just can't remember what that word was. But I was told by my mom he never spoke a single word. Naturally I would have jumped at the opportunity to prove her wrong but could not given I was a "latchkey" kid. Consequently, I only have me, myself & I as proof. But what I liked even better about the Pink Panther than hearing him utter that single words was when he folded cardboard over & over into every tinier squares & then ingested the multi-folded cardboard & then it started unfolding & flipping open inside of him making him turn into all this different shapes. I'd give anything to see that again. (10-13-2004)
