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.

Could this album have come out during the "Urban Cowboy" craze in the early 1980's when many people thought country would overtake pop/rock and dominate the charts?? (08-21-2002)

Anyone have Pink Panther Punk that they're willing to tape for me? I'm going through withdrawal. (I know.. I know..) I used to have it years ago, and have been frantically looking for it... no luck. Lemme know...

Hey MCPimpStick- Glad I saw your comment! I was beginning to think I made up that Pink Panther Punk tape. I had it when I was 4 years old, in 1979, and I thought it was the coolest thing in the whole world and played it on a constant loop. People don't believe me that this was a real tape that I had! Anyways, thanks... (08-25-2001)
