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 ending reminds me of a line in "Dr. Strangelove"
19 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

Once again, Penelope accidentally gets painted white - this time due to a brush that came disconnected from a bicycle - Pepe sees her and thinks that she's a female skunk, and uses all his energy to catch her. But the end of "A Scent of the Matterhorn" reminded me of "Dr. Strangelove". You may recall that the title character proposes a fallout shelter with ten women for every man (probably the most self-serving idea of which I've every heard). What Pepe sees at the end of this cartoon sort of mirrors that. C'est l'amour! Then again, I'm probably reading too far into this cartoon. After all, it was probably just intended as some wacky entertainment to precede a feature film (and it is pretty funny, if not the best Pepe Le Pew cartoon). Check it out.
