Pepe's first truly great role.
28 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

Up till this point the few Pepe Le Pew movies were actualy pretty boring.In this one we are introduced to his mate Penelope Cat.Pepe has broken into a perfume shop in France and the owner has the idea to sent her in to chase him away.What an idea.Once she gets a white stripe on her buck Pepe has chosen her as mate.His efforts to persuade her to join him and her own to avoid him are ecxelent comedy material.And one his scent is removed and she finaly notices how does his body look the roles are reversed.The odd couple does belong together.Too bad most of the other Pepe movies repeated this film and made it lost his uniqueness.Because it is one of the best of the Looney Toons.
