voyeurism vs. Pepe becoming more French than ever
8 February 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Sometimes when I watch movies or cartoons, I feel a little bit like I'm spying on the characters. In "The Cats Bah", they put sort of a spin on that idea, as Pepe Le Pew starts out by speaking to the camera. While the Looney Tunes do that fairly often, Pepe hands the viewer champagne and a cigarette and an unidentified person - we don't even see the person's hand, though the person smokes and drinks - accepts them. After this, he goes into the story of how he chased American cat Penelope (whom he believed to be a belle femme skunk) through the casbah in what was probably Morocco. There were plenty of gags along the way.

So, it's a pretty entertaining cartoon. And that cigarette really made Pepe seem more French than ever. I mean, isn't it our stereotype of French men as foul-smelling lovers who smoke a lot? Worth seeing.

Yeah, camels do need to be ready for just about anything.
