Zees cartoon eez ze locksmith of greatness!, 21 December 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

Pepe Le Pew chases a female cat through a perfume shop, until an unexpected event reverses their roles. Sometimes, I interpret Pepe Le Pew as the sort of person whose attitude turns people off without him realizing it, much like Pepe can't help that he smells terrible. After all, isn't it good enough that he at least tries to strike up relationships with women? But even ignoring that, "For Scent-imental Reasons" is still a classic cartoon. I will say that there's a scene - you'll know it if you see the cartoon - that seems a little strange to put in a cartoon. But on the other hand, these cartoons weren't really intended as cute entertainment for children; they always had an edge. Anyway, this one definitely deserved its Oscar win.

Le meow. Le purr. Ha!
