Storyline

Pepe Le Pew, the eternally amorous skunk, is in Paris, where the smell of his odor sends a female cat upward to hit a freshly painted flagpole, which puts a white stripe on her back and causes Pepe to think she is a girl skunk. He lustfully pursues her into the Louvre art gallery, where his foul scent causes the images in several paintings to change poses to show their disgust. The female cat's feline lover has also come into the Louvre and challenges Pepe to a duel for possession of her, but is thwarted by Pepe's unbearable stench.

Quotes

Pepé le Pew: [after the rival cat, who's wearing a clothespin on his nose and holding his breath, slaps Pepe] Uh-oh, I know. The jealous lover. Monsieur, I salute you. You wish to risk your life in a duel over this fair one. An affair of honor. I can see it now: Two grim figures, the cold light of dawn, a misty meadow. We select our weapons- pistols, perhaps. Back to back we stand, ramrod straight, we are very brave, monsieur. Un, deux, trois, quatre, five, sies, set, wit, neuf, ten. We turn, I fire. BANG!.....

A worthy if slightly disappointing ending to an entertaining series
7 February 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I have been a huge Looney Tunes for as long as I can remember. And I do like Pepe LePew and his cartoons, even if it was the sort of humour that might go over the heads of any child watching for the first time. Louvre Come Back to Me as with all the Pepe cartoons has much to like, but it is possibly my least favourite of the series. The animation has had much more colour and finesse before, some of it was on the gaudy side and some of it seemed rushed through. This is also a Pepe cartoon that is funnier, like the very early ones, from a visual gag point of view rather than verbally, the latter being part of the fun and charm of the best of Pepe. By all means there are still some good funny lines, but generally they have been more frequent and witty and compared to the quite bold innuendos before it seemed somewhat tame. And then Louvre Comes Back has the jealous boyfriend stereotype, that just feels as though it's just there with no spark and it does slow things down for me. However, the music is wonderful, full of jaunty, elegant and beautiful sounding themes. The visual gags are good, the facial expressions at the beginning are priceless. And the imaginary duel, which takes up most of the duration, is one of the most memorable scenes of any of Pepe's cartoons. Pepe is an amusing and very endearing character, and voiced wonderfully as usual by the one and only Mel Blanc. In conclusion, worthy if slightly disappointing. 7/10 Bethany Cox
