This might prove that Pepe is insane.
10 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I don't know who said it, but a really good quote says that an insane person does the same thing over and over and expects a different result (which can easily apply to the present state of US-foreign policy). But at the very least, we can apply it to Pepe Le Pew, who always tries to to get slinky with females but always repels them.

In "Wild Over You", a wild cat - presumably a female, but they don't really identify the gender - escapes from a Paris zoo and paints herself black and white. Sure enough, Pepe sees her and his hormones go crazy. But this wild cat is a real fighter, and nearly massacres Pepe every time that he tries to hug and kiss her. Of course, Pepe never gives up.

Probably what makes me laugh the most in this cartoon is how they play with the French language. Every sign begins with "le", and a paper boy shouts out "Read-ay vous all about it!" after the wild cat escapes. I can imagine that Michael Maltese had a lot of fun writing the screenplay, Mel Blanc had a lot of fun creating the voices, and Chuck Jones had a lot of fun directing. A really funny cartoon.
