Storyline

On the French Riviera, a female cat is frightened by sudden outbursts of barking by every dog around her. So, to scare them away, she paints her back with a white stripe like that of a skunk. The dogs, on seeing her stripe, run away and hide in fright. But she doesn't receive the peace she'd expected, because Pepe Le Pew, the amorous French skunk, sees her, thinks she's a girl skunk, and tries to make love to her.

Not heavenly but very good
30 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like Pepe LePew and his cartoons. Admittedly more now than 10 years old where the humour did go over my head. Heaven Scent is not as good as Scent-imental Romeo, For Scent-imental Reasons, Touche and Go and The Cat's Bah, but apart from the too abrupt ending it is very good. The story is not that much different either than what we've seen before, basically the whole series is a sort of one-joke formula. People will either be troubled by that or are used to it by now, I'm leering towards the latter actually but I have seen better from Looney Tunes. On the plus side, and there is much to like in Heaven Scent, the animation is still the colourful and elegant style that we are familiar with(if more in the backgrounds and colours than the secondary character designs), and the music has a very charming romantic lilt that is also very witty. The gags are very amusing, though much of the humour is mostly verbal and Pepe utters some of the sharpest and funniest lines of any of the cartoons with him starring. I always admired how risqué the humour was with the Pepe cartoons, and this is also the case here. Pepe is great value, and voiced superbly as ever by Mel Blanc, who rarely if ever put a foot wrong. All in all, very good if not one of the best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
