One of Pepe's best
24 March 2001 | by (Pleasant Prairie, WI) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'll admit it. I've really got a soft spot for Pepe Le Pew. He's practically the reason I started to love cartoons. He also taught me to set my mind on a goal and work up to it, not to mention take my French ancestry and love it.

This cartoon I find intriguing because the way it starts, with Pepe offering the viewer champenge gives this cartoon some depth. It helps enforce Pepe to really be one of the Warner Brothers' better characters. After so much Wile E. Coyote and RoadRunner, and so much Sylvester and Tweety, etc., they begin to lack much difference in their cartoons. So much anvils, dynamite, ACME products backfiring, and the like, it wears a little thin. But Pepe is a Looney Tune who is fairly dynamic, he's always kept fresh and funny in his cartoons (that, and he's just so cute). To me, he deserves to be appreciated a little more. "Just theenk, radiant flower, you do not need to come wiz me to zee Casbah...we are already there!" -Pepe Le Pew. It's a classic line.

BTW, this cartoon is also known for revealing the name of Pepe's primary object d'affection: Penelope. (she likes him, she is just a little shy.)
