Slink Pink is the 59th cartoon produced in the The Pink Panther series. A total of 124 6-minute cartoons were produced between 1964 and 1980.
The Pink Panther is homeless and is enduring a cold wintry night on a park bench. He decides to seek refuge in a nearby apartment building, occupied by a modestly wealthy hunter. While the hunter remains oblivious, his dog keys in to the fact that the Pink Panther is in the house. Several times the dog mistakenly attacks its master, thinking he is the Pink Panther, and gets kicked out. Eventually both dog and master bolt out of the house in mortal combat, and the Pink Panther shrugs and goes back inside.
- Halfway through Slink Pink, Walter Greene's music score is changed to William Lava's score for a previous Pink Panther short Shocking Pink.
- The Pink Panther Show contained a laugh track when the Pink Panther cartoons were broadcast on NBC-TV. Currently, the laugh track version airs on the Spanish language Boomerang TV channel.
- The censored version is currently on the U.S. DVD set. However the original version is on the DVD set.
