the ending reminds me of a line in "Dr. Strangelove", 19 February 2007
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

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.
