Storyline

B.O. Skunk finds himself attracted to various other animals, but one whiff and they run away. He tries some extreme techniques, including a Frank Sinatra impersonation; that gets the stage mobbed, but they still run away. Finally, he tries camouflaging himself as a fox, only to meet and fall for another skunk disguised as a fox. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A cartoon for Valentine's
19 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved this cartoon, it is so cute and it's funny at the same time. You know,during the beginning and the middle of this cartoon, I do feel sorry for the little skunk - nobody loves him; until the end that is. The scenes with The Curdina-Bunny and The Frank Sinatra parody were especially hilarious...who would of thought Frankie was quite a stud back then; I am sure he wasn't THAT lanky too.

One more thing I would like mention, I am also a hopeless romantic, I mean I love a good romance - neither movie or cartoon. And this short will be prefect for Valentine's Day, along with Pepe le Pew cartoons; Pepe's my favorite cartoon character and also Valentine's Day is another favorite holiday of mine.
