A funny early Pepe cartoon, with a nice twist.

At last, Pepe le Pew stops chasing cats! Actually, he'd only chased a cat in a single cartoon prior to this, so that really isn't relevant. I guess he didn't like dogs as much to quit them forever.

The plot is simple: A female Mexican Hairless dog is treated with scorn by the other breeds, in luxurious and thick coats for the winter. So the Hairless gets a coat that fits her nicely, but is unaware that it makes her look like a skunk, driving off her friends and attracting Pepe le Pew the skunk, who has a rather, ah, strong scent.

The starting is funny, and shows a bunch of dogs looking at a poster for a book titled 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn'. I didn't get that when I was five, but now, at eleven, I do. As always, you have to look out for Pepe's funny lines. He constantly spouts elaborate and romantic (though the dog doesn't really pay much attention) French stuff, while oblivious to the dog's struggles to free herself from his grasp. Some people think Pepe's cartoons are repetitive, and that if you've seen one, you've seen 'em all, but the fact is that each cartoon does a great job with the same story, and the bulk of one short unfolds in a different way than the other. But I admit that most of the skunk shorts are part of a big whole, which is equal in quality. But some are unique, and stand out in the memory, and this one of them. Why? Because of a great ending. (And I agree with another commenter, why didn't she try that before? Maybe she still thought she looked like a dog, and Pepe was after her for no reason.) Anyway, if you like Pepe le Pew, or if you think he's repetitive and are looking for something different, then I recommend Scent-imental Over You.
