One of Pepe's very best cartoons
19 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like Pepe LePew, though I do think he is the sort of character that you appreciate more as an adult. The Cats Bah is one of his best, I'd say second only to For Scent-imental Reasons(my personal favourite). Pepe is just wonderful here, I love how out there and self-ironic he is and if you do as well you'll be more than satisfied. If you are familiar with Pepe's cartoons, you know where it is going to go from the start most of the time but they are always entertaining. When it comes to the animation, it is one of Pepe's most stylish and charmingly elegant and the colours are beautiful. The music also works perfectly, there's the unmistakable Looney Tunes musical wit but also a French amorous flavour which sets the tone beautifully. This is true for most Pepe cartoons actually. The Cat's Bah relies more on verbal humour than gags, though the gags especially the ending are imaginative. But the dialogue is deliciously witty and really fabulously written, you're also left impressed at how risqué it sounds sometimes as well. All in all, very, very good and one of Pepe's best. 9/10 Bethany Cox
