User Reviews

Pepe Le Pew's only Oscar bid was a winner!

This cartoon won an Oscar for Pepe Le Pew almost ten years before Bugs Bunny won for Knighty Knight Bugs. Pepe is one of my favorite characters and this is one of the better cartoons in the series, although not my personal favorite (that's Touche and Go). Pepe discovers wht it's like to have the shoe on the other foot in this one. Great fun in this one. It should be in-print. It has been in the past, most notably on the tape A Salute to Chuck Jones from the Golden Jubilee series. Cartoon Network shows it fairly often. Recommended.
