Storyline

On an extremely cold winter day, a dog is looking for shelter, from the frigid snow on the ground. It first tries another dog's house, a bird's nest and even a turtle's shell. The dog is thrown out from all three. Then it finds and sneaks into a cabin with an open fireplace and a cozy bed. But he has a stinky rival for occupancy of the cabin - an unnamed skunk, (but not Pepe Le Pew). The dog and skunk combat each other by spraying the other with scents. The skunk with his foul odor tail, and the dog with cologne. Both run outside and dive into a frozen lake, so the smell doesn't bother its nose and both catch a cold in the process. The sneezing dog and skunk then decide to stop fighting and become friends. Then they share the bed in the cabin. However, this did lead to Pepe Le Pew's creation.

Enjoyable

A freezing dog is desperately looking for shelter during winter. He finally finds a cozy cabin with a warm fire going. Unfortunately for the pooch, the cabin already has an inhabitant -- a skunk that is debatably Pepé Le Pew. The two spend the entire cartoon fighting for sole occupation of the cabin. There's some disagreement among fans as to whether this is supposed to be Pepé or not. He only speaks one word and it's not with a French accent. The plot has nothing to do with romance, as Pepé's other shorts almost always did. It's included by Warner Bros. in a Pepé collection so I think WB must consider it one of his shorts. The simplest answer, to me, seems to be that this is an early Pepé short before his character had been fully fleshed-out and they had decided on what angle worked best with him. We see this with other characters as well whose earliest appearances differ greatly from their later characterizations. Anyway, it's a fun short with some decent gags. The music is energetic and the animation is colorful and attractive. Pepé Le Pew or not, I think most fans of classic shorts will enjoy it.
