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>

The dialogue in a Pepe Le Pew is essential to the success of the cartoon!

Given that this is Bastille Day, a comment on a Pepe Le Pew is appropriate, don't you think? In this one Pepe is Pepe, of course, and the lines (mainly delivered by Pepe) are wonderful. While good scripts were important in most of the series that Warner Brothers did, visual gags tend to overshadow dialogue much of the time. For Pepe to work, the lines need to be funny, as visual gags are a bit limited by the premise and Pepe's personality is part of the charm to be found here in any case. This short has great lines, like, "You may call me Streetcar because of my desire for you." The ending is hilarious. My favorite sight gag in any Pepe Le Pew is in this one. Watch for the scene with the frog, with the frog's reaction to Pepe being the absolutely perfect reaction to have. Rumor has it that the frog here was a cousin of Michigan J. Frog who kept pestering him for work. This walk-on role was Michigan's way of "discouraging" his cousin from pursuing a career in show business. It worked quite well-his cousin reputedly joined the French Foreign Legion "to forget" his experience. Great cartoon. Well worth watching. Most highly recommended.
