Pepe’ Le Pew DVD- Review


Kaia absolutely loves Pepe’ Le Pew. She truly thinks he is one of the funniest characters ever. She adores the poor black kitty as well and thinks it is so funny how she always seems to get white paint on her to make her look like a skunk and therefore a perfect match for Pepe. This compilation of Pepe’ Le Pew cartoons is perfect for anyone who likes this very persistent and perhaps a bit overly confident skunk. It would be a great addition also for anyone who collects Looney Tunes DVD’s. We definitely have been enjoying this DVD it is full of great episodes that are sure to make you laugh.

Synopsis:

A new compilation featuring 17 iconic shorts of the loveable French skunk, Pepe Le Pew! Pepe is always strolling around Paris in the springtime, where everyone’s thoughts are of love. While he is constantly seeking l ‘amour of his own, his huge turnoff to any prospective mate is his malodorous scent. Together for the first time are some of Pepe’s most beloved and comical shorts.

The following 17 Cartoon Classics are included in this Pepe’ Le Pew Compilation

Odor-able Kitty
(1945).
A put-upon stray cat finds a way to avoid the wrath of the dogs and humans who annoy him – by disguising himself as a skunk! He attracts the attentions of a real skunk, however, going to drastic measures to keep the pesky critter at bay. Pepé’s debut, with some strange differences – his name is Henry, he unwittingly pursues a male cat, and he’s outed for having a wife and kids (and an American accent!). On its own, this is a wonderfully scwewy ‘toon.
Scent-imental Over You (1947).
A Park Avenue chihuahua, feeling like a social outcast, decides to glue a skunk-like fur on her hide. This attracts an amorous skunk (named Stinky this time); cute hijinks ensue.

This virtually dialogue-less Pepé oddity finds the skunk competing with a homeless dog for shelter on a wintry day.
For Scent-imental Reasons (1949).

Wild Over You (1953).
The Paris Exposition of 1900 hosts a zoo filled with exotic animals, but visitors are thrown into a panic when a wild cat escapes and is roaming the city. To evade her pursuers, she disguises herself as a skunk (you didn’t see that one coming, did you?) but winds up being pursued again by Pepé.
Dog Pounded (1954; directed by Friz Freleng).
