    Welcome to The Pink Panther guide at TV.com.

    In 1963, movie director Blake Edwards asked David H. DePatie and Friz Freleng (who had just opened their cartoon studio, DePatie-Freleng) to design a character for the opening titles of his movie, "The Pink Panther". Of many drawings, Edwards selected the cool design by Hawley Pratt. The opening of the movie became so famous that United Artists, the distributor of the movie, told them to make a cartoon series with the character. The cartoon series started in 1964 and became very successful, the first short called "The Pink Phink" won an Academy Award. After the success of the Pink Panther cartoons, DePatie and Freleng introduced other cartoon series like "The Inspector" and "Roland and Rattfink", however, none of them became as famous as their first creation. The last theatrically released Pink Panther cartoon, "Therapeutic Pink", was made in 1977. More cartoons were made in 1978-1979, for television distribution.

    In 1984, DePatie-Freleng was already gone so Hanna-Barbera made a new cartoon series "The Pink Panther and Sons". It wasn't successful and it was cancelled soon. In September 1993, a new half-hour series made for syndication by MGM Television Animation premiered. It was simply called "The Pink Panther". In these new cartoons, Pink Panther spoke. He was voiced by Matt Frewer. In this show, two other classic DePatie-Freleng cartoons, The Ant and the Aardvark and The Dogfather were revived. New characters, Voodoo Man and Manly Man were introduced. This show ended in May 1995, after only two seasons.

She's even nice to Spiderus, who once tried to become her husband and is normally mean to everyone else. Miss Spider was adopted as a young spiderling when she lost her family.

    Squirt - Squirt is green and is often seen wearing a pink and green cap. He is one of five spider children who live in the Hollow Tree.

The voice of Squirt, Scott Beaudin, can also be heard as Peep in Peep and the Big Wide World and Fox in the most recent episodes of Franklin.

    Shimmer - She is a bright-pink jewel beetle and the oldest female of the siblings. She likes to fly very high up in the air with Dragon and likes to play flying games. Shimmer lost her mother and father when she was a young buggie. She was blown away in a storm and was never sure what happened to them. Shimmer's quest to find her parents was the subject of the feature-length special The Prince, the Princess and the Bee. Shimmer's voice actress is Rebecca Brenner.

    Bounce - He is a blue bedbug who loves to hop around with his brothers and sisters. Bounce's best friend is Dragon because they both found each other before Miss Spider asked them to come into their family. Both Bounce and Dragon never knew their parents, but they believe that they were possibly eaten by a big owl named Hoot. Bounce misses his family a lot but he also likes his new family, The Spider Family. Bounce is very fond of eating. He also is very young and is rarely shy to voice is opinion.

    Dragon - He is a purple dragonfly who loves to fly around with his sister, Shimmer. Dragon has many friends such as Squirt, Shimmer and his best buggie pal, Bounce. Dragon is an excellent flier, capable of beating his wings thirty times per second. Dragon once considered flying away with an air show, but decided to stay with his family. Something of a rebel at times, Dragon can often be bossy. He will also sometimes do things that may not be entirely right, but he is usually a fairly nice bug. Mitchell Eisner provides the voice of Dragon. He is Rabbit in the most recent season of Franklin and also Ka-Chung in The Save-Ums.

    Wiggle - He is a little bluish colored spider who kind of looks a bit like a blueberry. He always wears his watermelon cap and carries little watermelon balls right beside his waist. Wiggle is very caring who likes to play with Squirt and Spinner. Wiggle usually likes to explore Sunny Patch with Spinner while his family is away doing something else. Wiggle is generally soft-spoken. He is also very nervous and sometimes easily scared. Wiggle has a creative side and is revealed to be something of an artist in "Wiggle's Squiggles." In the first season of the program, he is never seen web-surfer, but in the second season, Squirt helps him to learn how. Wiggle's voice actor, Marc McMulkin, is Bear in the most recent season of Franklin. He also voices Noah on Jacob Two-Two.

    Spinner - Spinner wears glasses and is rather intelligent. He is also very good at spinning webs. Once not a very good athlete, his brother Dragon helped him to play sports such as basketberry.

    Pansy - Pansy is one of the two six-year-old twin girls. Although she loves her twin sister Snowdrop, she wants to be seen as her own spider. But when it comes down to it, she and Snowdrop are a dynamic duo. They are a good team. They do everything better together. Pansy is a tomboy, a natural athlete. She is the most coordinated of our bug pack. She can get herself out of practically any sticky situation. Because of her natural ability she takes chances. Chances she shouldn't always take. When Pansy gets in trouble, it's usually Snowdrop that comes to her rescue. Pansy loves to be at the center of attention. She's very competitive and doesn't like it when someone can do something better than she can. She can surf circles around Squirt, which irritates him royally. Pansy is not very good at weaving webs, a talent that her brother Snowdrop possesses. Aaryn Doyle, the voice of Pansy, also voices Foo on The Save-Ums.

    Snowdrop - Snowdrop is pansy's six year old twin. Where Pansy is all about the physical, Snowdrop is about the cerebral. She is a dreamer, an inventor and a budding scientist. Snowdrop is a keen observer of the world around her. She is a marvelous engineer and craftsbug. Her webs are masterpieces and she already has a reputation in sunny patch for their delicate intricacy. She's the first to put together an acorn shell buggy for the annual sunny patch go-cart race. Her best pal and sister pansy is sure to race it to victory. Moving at her own pace, Snowdrop is a kid who easily gets lost in reverie, stopping every step to marvel at a flower unfolding or cloud changing shape or to collect tidbits for her next invention. She often lags behind the family and her sister Pansy always keeps a watchful eye out for her. There isn't much that can ruffle snowdrop's blissful nature. She has a very, very long fuse. But when Snowdrop blows, she blows and all the other kids run for cover. Snowdrop's voice, Alexandra Lai, is also the voice of Dori the Glow Grub on The Save-Ums.
