The Pepe LePew cartoons are ones that I appreciate more now than I did 10 years ago. And while none of them are among my favourite cartoons of all time and they are basically one-joke formulas, they are entertaining and you are impressed by the stuff that they get away with here. While there are better Pepe cartoons about, ones with more colourful and elegant animation and more appealing character designs, I do have a soft spot Who Scent You? as it was my first one. Other than the ship setting, don't expect something different story-wise, there's little of surprise really. But this is not to knock Who Scent You? as there is also much to like about it. The music is outstanding, with the typical lush orchestration, recognisable old favourites and the charming French style to remind us of the time and place. The cartoon moves briskly and never feels dull, and the humour is great. There are some very amusing gags, the ending visual gag puts a smile to one's face and the brief part underwater with the fish collapsing at Pepe's smell also. Again like with all Pepe's cartoons, much of it is verbal, and there are some very witty and funny lines, sometimes you have to admire how direct Pepe's- who always bags the best lines- proposals are, also making for brilliant comedy. Pepe, well supported also by the cat, is the same roguish and horny yet somewhat lovable character he always has been, and Mel Blanc in a characterisation reminiscent of both Charles Boyer and Maurice Chevalier is superb. All in all, not Pepe's best but a lot of fun. 8/10 Bethany Cox
