My second-favorite Pepe, after Touche and Go.

This one, like all the best Pepe Le Pew cartoons, depends principally on verbal humor rather than sight gags for most of the laughs (though the last gag is a sight gag that ends this one perfectly) and some of the jokes are obvious, while a few are subtle word play, such as the "ze bonds of slavery" line, when Pepe "frees" Penelope, to her horror. Pepe, like a great many folks throughout time, deludes himself. His delusion, charmingly enough, is that he is "ze great lover". That he continues his efforts in spite of his massive lack of success is either a tribute to perseverance or an indication of greater psychological trauma and detachment. I prefer the former theory. After all, to paraphrase Freud, "Sometimes a cartoon is just a cartoon." Good to excellent jokes make this a must see. Recommended.
