Storyline

A perfume shop owner disguises a black cat as a skunk in hopes of luring away Pepe, who has wandered in to sample the scents. The amorous Pepe pursues the cat, but the tables are turned when he winds up temporarily stripeless and odorless, and himself becomes the object of the cat's passionate attentions.

Classy and one of Pepe Le Pew's best
28 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I quite like the Pepe Le Pew cartoons, and I quite like Pepe himself for how unique and how he stands out among the rest. For Scent-imental Reeasons is a very classy cartoon and one of Pepe Le Pew's best. From the hilarious beginning and familiar set-up to the classic talking through the class gag and the ending which is a table-turner, For Scent-imental Reasons works so well. Complete with beautiful, elegant looking animation, lilting and amorous music that couldn't have been more perfect for the cartoon's tone, fresh dialogue, very funny gags and Mel Blanc's infectious vocals particularly as Pepe, you have a near masterpiece. Pepe is wonderful and gives one of his best performances, and Penelope is not shabby either. In conclusion, classy and entertaining, perhaps it could have been longer, but so much works you don't necessarily mind. 9/10 Bethany Cox
