Storyline

A perfume shop owner disguises a black cat as a skunk in hopes of luring away Pepe, who has wandered in to sample the scents. The amorous Pepe pursues the cat, but the tables are turned when he winds up temporarily stripeless and odorless, and himself becomes the object of the cat's passionate attentions.

Pepe's first truly great role.
28 October 2001 | by dimadickSee 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.
