The Punk Panther depicted here is a play on the United Artists' Pink Panther cartoon character. The series first aired in 1969 and has continued in various forms since. The animated panther was first seen during the beginning credits of the live-action Peter Sellers/Blake Edwards films, and was so popular that it was developed into cartoon shorts and later 20-minute episodes.
