- Waaaaay back in April we posted news about how MGM (now owned by Sony) was planning to release in July 2005 a $69.96 package called The Pink Panther Show - Classic Cartoon Collection 5-Pack Box Set. It was planned to tie in with the Summer release of the new Steve Martin Pink Panther live-action film, continuing in the tradition of Peter Sellers' theatrical classics. However, the cartoon series' release was delayed when the film's release was, and we've been waiting all this time for word of a new release date for the DVDs.

With the film (still) set with a new theatrical debut of February 10th, Sony-MGM is now scheduling the cartoon show to finally hit store shelves on January 31st. SRP is still going to be $69.96, and all the extras mentioned in the April announcement are still intact. Nor, it seems, has any of the packaging artwork changed:

* "Behind the Feline: The Cartoon Phenomenon" Documentary
* "Pink Patter With Art Leonardi: The Story Behind the Animation" Featurette
* "Remembering Friz: A Tribute to Friz Freleng" Featurette
* "Think Pink: How to Draw the Pink Panther" Featurette
* Page to Screen: The Making of Two Cartoons
* Animated Main Title Sequences From Five of the Feature Films

First Leave It To Beaver, now they're releasing Rat Patrol. I'm soooo happy!
