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.

User Reviews

One of Pepe's earliest and greatest roles.
13 July 2004 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Paris, France: A perfume shop owner discovers that the amorous skunk Pepe Le Pew is generously sampling his perfumes. The distraught shop-owner flings a cat inside to eject the skunk. The feline femme fatale, of course, has her back dyed white, and when Pepe sees this, he of course tries to woo her (sometimes forcibly), blissfully unaware that she is trying to escape his scent-imental attentions.

"For Scent-imental Reasons" was the first Pepe cartoon I ever saw, having seen it on tape in "The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie". The ending and beginning are a bit funnier and more unique than usual, and some of the humor comes from sources besides Pepe, which is unusual. Certainly one of his best efforts, although not the best of all.
