Sunday Funnies: Cheap Detectives Week Begins with The Inspector

What's happening, Groove-ophiles? This week is gonna be extra special! It's Cheap Detectives Week, and Ol' Groove is gonna shine the spotlight on the little known Cops and Robbers of the Groovy Age.

First up we have The Inspector, from the Pink Panther comics. Yeah, he's Inspector Clouseau, famed star of the Pink Panther movies. In the Groovy Age, the Inspector usually played second fiddle to the Pink Panther both in the cartoon series and in the comics. Well, this time the Inspector is getting all the attention! Here's a little seen treat from Gold Key's Pink Panther #15 (1973), The Inspector in "Invisible Means"!


  1. What did the pink panther say when he stepped on an ant?

    Dead ant, dead ant, dead ant, dead ant, dead ant, dead ant , dead aaaaaaaant (to the theme song)

    Guess that's funnier in person...

  2. An oldie, but a goodie! (And that's what we're all about here, right?)

  3. Bringing back my retarded teenage years - THANK YOU!

    Thanks for the memory of my retarded teenage years!
