| Starting with Volume 2, the featurettes on the Looney Tunes DVDs were the locksmiths of love, no?
In a way, Pepe Le Pew - more than any of the other Looney Tunes - represents that deep down desire that so many men have. The mini-documentary "Behind the Tunes: The Charm of Stink - On the Scent of Pepe le Pew" explains his hilarious delusion of being the world's greatest lover while actually repelling the women. People like Leonard Maltin and Joe Dante put in their two (s)cents.

I think that I may have heard that Pepe was based on French actor Charles Boyer, but this featurette clarifies the whole thing. I guess that it's another example of knowing the parody before knowing the original (heck, without even knowing that the parody is a parody). Kind of like how the first time that I saw "What's Opera, Doc?" when I was really young, I had never heard of Richard Wagner, or that I learn about many pop songs by hearing "Weird Al" Yankovic's spoofs.

But anyway, this short does a good job looking at Pepe Le Pew. I agree with another reviewer that the mini-documentaries on the Looney Tunes DVDs improved with Volume 2.
