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>

A Slip Of The Tongue(?)
29 September 2001 | by (Pennsylvania, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

As much as I like Pepe Le Pew cartoons (except for the final one, "Louvre Come Back To Me"--Jones; 1962), I have to single this one (and "Two Scents Worth") as a sign that Chuck Jones really pushed the envelope on this series. The scene: Pepe sees the painted Penelope over a cliff and races down (literally) to meet her. After introducing himself, he breaks with this pick-up line, "Everyone should have a hobby, don't you think..." At first, I thought it wouldn't be the least bit offensive, until I heard the latter line, spoken in a really sexually suggestive voice, "Mine is making love," and was reminded that the Warner Brothers cartoons from 1939 to 1964 were everything today's milk-sopped, reality-based cartoons aren't: rude, crude, lewd, a laugh-riot, and a target for children and older audiences alike. As for Pepe's line (which was muted out on Nickelodeon for its sexual innuendo, but restored to cartoon Network): In the (paraphrased) words of Chicken on the episode of "Cow and Chicken" where Chicken fakes being near-sighted so he can get glasses: "That is a pretty wierd line, [Chuck] Jones. You let little kids hear THAT?" What I'm trying to say is that the 1940's and 1950's were a time where (premarital) sex was taboo, and it's ironic (almost paradoxal) that a cartoon series about a over-amorous French skunk womanizing was allowed to show in the theatres.
