The Blue Aardvark is one of two titular main prоtаgonists of The Ant and the Aardvark series.
He was voiced by the late John Byner who also voiced Charlie Ant in the classic shorts and by Eddie Garvar in Pink Panther and Pals.
He is a blue aardvark who talks with a Jackie Mason-like voice. He wears clothing that matches the color of his fur/skin. He is normally the one causing trouble and is obsessed with eating Charlie Ant (in fairness this is his instinct, being a predator). However, the lengths he goes to in order to pursue his tiny opponent are often extreme and sometimes rather unpleasant, though he almost always tends to be the one who recieves the worst punishment (like most cartoon villains) such as being beat up by two tigers. It can be debatable as to whether or not he has caught an ant; some episodes say he has never done so, while some say otherwise. He often complains about the difficulties of being an aardvark and/or catching ants.
Pink Panther and Pals
The Blue Aardvark and Charlie return in this spin-off to the Pink Panther Show. He still has his ethnic accent, still willing to catch the ant, and still receives punishment for his actions. Unlike The Ant and The Aardvark, he appeared shorter and thinner than his classic design and is now voiced by Eddie Garvar instead of John Byner. He is also portrayed as more stupid and egotistical. He once got 3 wishes from a magic genie but instead of simply wishing for the any he wished for stupid things such as a suit made of tape and a tiny race car to get the ant, which proves how dumb he is.
