* Pink Panther Cartoon Collection Vol. 2: Adventures in The Pink (155 min.)

Volumes 1-4 were originally released separately and on a 5-disc collector's set under the title of "The Pink Panther Classic Cartoon Collection" in January 2006. Also available on the 18-disc Pink Panther Ultimate Collection released on November 28, 2008.
Volumes 5 and 6 were only released separately under the title of "The Pink Panther and Friends Classic Cartoon Collection" on April 3, 2007 and March 4, 2008 respectively. Also available on the 18-disc Pink Panther Ultimate Collection.
[Note: while Vol. 5 contains the complete series of The Ant & the Aardvark, Vol. 6 contains only the first 17 (of 34) Inspector shorts, hence the second volume.]
Volumes 7-9 were only released on the 18-disc Pink Panther Ultimate Collection and are expected [by fans who already own the preceding volumes] to be released individually sometime soon as separate volumes.
Bottom line: A solid cartoon collection. Recommended if you don't already own the previous separate releases or the 5-disc collector's set or the 18-disc ultimate collection. For fans that only own the previous separate volumes and/or the 5-disc set, I recommend waiting for the individual releases of Volumes 7 and 8. Volume 9, btw, contains the remaining Pink Panther shorts and extras from the 5-disc set [and later 18-disc set] not previously released separately."
Vol 9 is not a real bonus disc

"for those of you curious about what's on disc 9 - it's not Mr Jaws, the Tijuana Toads, The Blue Racer or the Dogfather. It's merely the fifth disc from the Complete Pink Panther cartoon boxset. It's the last batch of Pink Panthers made by DFE So if you are trying to decide which to buy - don't worry. You're getting more for less price on this collection."

"This is another case where they try to squeeze more profits from the most committed fans. If you've bought the PP cartoon DVDs in any or all of the previous packages, you'd still miss two DVDs that are contained ONLY in this bundle: The Inspector Part Deux, and Roland & Ratfink. So if you're a PP fan who hasn't bought any of the previous cartoon DVDs, this is the most complete set. If you're tired of manipulation, forget it. They did the same thing with the PP movie collection where they left one movie out of the collection bundle, until later."
It's all there

"I bought this as a gift for an 8 year old and he loves it. And it's a great excuse to enjoy these all over again. Seems to be the most complete collection available."
