Storyline

In the French Alps, an out-of-control street-painter's wagon sprays white paint onto a female cat's back, producing a stripe like that on a skunk. Pepe Le Pew, the amorous French skunk, spots the girl cat with the painted stripe, thinks she's a female skunk, and tries to romance her. When she smells Pepe's stench, she runs away, and he chases her up a mountain. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Fairly basic Pepe film
19 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

High in the Alps, a road marking cart gets unattached from it's horse and runs free across the countryside. It runs across a cat, leaving a white streak up her back. This is not a problem until the romantically-inclined Pepe Le Pew spots the cat and mistakes her for a skunk. His passions engaged, the chase begins!

When a road painter breaks free painting everything with a white streak, you'd really have to have never seen a Pepe cartoon before not to know what's coming. The material follows the usual trend and is reasonably amusing if you like Pepe cartoons. The truth is though, I'm not a big fan of his and this film had nothing that really made it stand out from the others - it doesn't do anything particularly clever or funny.

Pepe is the same as he usually is and has no twist in the cartoon to help him be more interesting. His cat prey is pretty nondescript and has no chance to impose herself on the cartoon.

Overall, if you are a fan of the series and can accept the basics as funny, then it is likely you will enjoy this. However I need a little more and I didn't get much from this.
