Scent-imental Over You (1947) Poster

Jealous of all the high-class dogs in their fine coats, a little Mexican hairless pooch borrows one, not realizing it's a skunk's pelt. Once she has it on, she finds everyone fleeing from her, except for the amorous Pepe Le Pew.

Funny if you like Pepe!
A small, hairless dog feels left out when she sees all the other dogs in thick coats of fur. She goes inside and borrows a part of her owner's fur coat and goes out. She doesn't notice that the coat makes her look like a skunk and all the other dogs run from her - however this very thing draws Pepé Le Pew like a magnet!

I'm not a big fan of the cartoons involving Pepé, they all seem to be the same gags and Pepé himself is not a flexible enough character to really keep repeating the same stuff over and over again, he is a little too much of a one trick pony. However viewed infrequently his stuff can be good - and it had been a while since I watched one his shorts when I saw this one. The basic plot starts well, the gags where the little dog first comes out in her fur is funny - including a scene where dogs gather round a bookshop because of a poster advertising `A Tree Grows in Brooklyn'! Once Pepé comes in, it still works and he does his usual stuff quite well.

The little dog and Pepé are both interesting and amusing characters in this short, and the ending is actually pretty funny (although does beg the question as to why the little dog didn't take that action at the very start of the cartoon!).

Overall this is an enjoyable cartoon for fans of the character. I'm not a big fan but I still quite enjoyed the mix of sight gags and the odd cleverer joke.
