One of only three Pepe Le Pew cartoons not directed by Chuck Jones, Arthur Davis's "Odor of the Day" is one of the cartoons leaving ambiguity about the main character's identity (another was "A Corny Concerto", starring a duck who may or may not have been Daffy). When a dog goes to a house to spend the night...only to have a skunk enter, and the two begin fighting over the house.

Aside from the fact that the skunk's identity is never specifically identified - though he looks like Pepe - whereas Pepe always remains oblivious to his offensive body odor, this skunk clearly knows about his body odor, using it as a weapon against the dog. Could this be Pepe's evil twin?! Whoever this Mephitis mephitis* is, we have here an OK if not great cartoon. But I think that we can agree that skunk cartoons are best when Pepe Le Pew tries too hard to get slinky (and presumably have sex) with a cat whom he mistakes for a belle femme skunk.

*That's the scientific name for skunks.
