Blake Edwards' Pink Panther is a series of 124 short subjects produced at DePatie–Freleng Enterprises and released by United Artists from 1964 to 1978.

Ninety-two shorts were released theatrically, and eventually the first sixty-two entries appeared on Saturday mornings via The Pink Panther Show under the same umbrella title starting in 1969 on NBC. All thirty-six made-for-television entries were also distributed to theaters after initially airing on The Pink Panther Show under the title The All New Pink Panther Show in 1978–1980 on ABC, respectively.

The Pink Panther's long-time foil, known simply as The Little Man, appeared in many entries except where noted.
