(Pepe Le) "Pew" - This Cartoon Stinks!, 3 February 2007
Author: ccthemovieman-1 from United States

An owner of a French perfume shop enters his store one day and discovers a skunk sampling the merchandise! He calls a cop but that doesn't help. A cat then sidles up to the Frenchman, so the latter throws the cat in the building with orders to get that skunk out of there. The black cat bumps into a can of white paint, which conveniently pours a steak down his back.

The skunk - our first look at the character "Pepe Le Pew" - sees the cat and thinks it's a female skunk. He woos it, using every French cliché of the day and the cat keeps running away, of course. When the two of them fall out the window, Pepe falls into a vat of blue paint and the cat falls into a vat of water.

Because of their new appearances, the shoe is on the other foot with the cat now "in love" with Pepe!

Frankly, I found most of this unfunny, nothing I would watch again unless for "historical" reasons to see the "birth" of Pepe in Merrie Melody cartoons.
