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>

"You may call me Streetcar because of my desire for you."
3 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I like the Pepe LePew cartoons now that I understand and appreciate the humour, which admittedly went over my head as a child. A Scent of the Matterhorn is not among his best(For Scent-imental Reasons, Touche and Go, Scent-imental Romeo and The Cat's Bah), the animation is rather gaudy and rushed-looking and Penelope(I think that's her name) is at her most non-descript. However, while the story is formulaic and not that surprising, it is briskly paced and is lifted by some inspired material. Pepe has some of his best ever lines, and there are a few great visual gags, I agree that the one with the frog is just priceless. Pepe is the one who has to carry his cartoons, and he always does so brilliantly. Underneath all that trademark roguish and risqué personality there is also something very charismatic and endearing about him, and you see all of this here. This is helped by Mel Blanc's consistently brilliant vocals, and there is also some great music, that sounds beautiful and enhances the humour very nicely, as well. All in all, a good Pepe cartoon but I do think he has done better. 8/10 Bethany Cox
