I can remember watching these old Pink Panther cartoons as a kid, early on Saturday morning. Episode 2, "Pink Pajamas" from 1964 is a real winner, though what strikes me is how much it appeals to my adult sensibilities
The Flop House that denies him admission...the charming and spot on animation of the drunken fellow...the "Demon Rum" book...the 1960s minimalism of the drawing, like a jazz record, only it's a cartoon.
There's a lot to get a kick out of here, though none of it is fit for children. Still, I do remember having a laugh at it at the age of eight at 6 a.m. on a Saturday, even if I didn't know what I was laughing at. Maybe they put it on that early for the drunken grownups who were only just getting home.
p.s. a secret.
