The show premiered on Cartoon Network on March 7, 2010 at 7:30am, presented in both HD and SD. The series had its UK premiere on Boomerang on April, 19 at 4pm. The show is composed of two seven-minute Pink Panther shorts with a seven-minute Ant and the Aardvark short in between.

The Pink Panther
The Pink Panther shorts are reminiscent of the classic DePatie-Freleng Panther shorts from the 1960s, from art direction, silent acting, musical scoring, and story lines. The Pink Panther remains silent throughout the show, and has been aged down as a teenager. The Panther also gains a sidekick named Hoarse, based on the horse he had troubles with in Pinto Pink and Pink Valiant. The panther's enemy The Little Man has been renamed to "Big Nose" for this series with vocal effects provided by Alex Nussbaum. The Little Man's canine companion Dog has been reintroduced in this version.
Ant and the Aardvark
The Ant and the Aardvark shorts are based on the classic DePatie-Freleng shorts also by the same name. In this version, the Aardvark (now voiced by Eddie Garvar in the style of John Byner) appears to be the same age as his classic counterpart, the Ant (now voiced by Kel Mitchell of Kenan & Kel) has been aged down like the teenage Pink Panther; however, he is never called "Charlie" (as his classic counterpart). The locations and artistic style of the show have been reinvented for this release.
