Le Pew


I was talking to someone today about Pepé Le Pew—centered around the idea expressed by Dave Chappelle—being inappropriate and a completely horrible example for children. A lot of cartoons expressed some very inappropriate content, but Le Pew’s stands out.

The perverse skunk constantly chased what he couldn’t have, resorted to tactics which would land most men in court and/or prison, and while ultimately failing, refused to accept loss and continued dangerously in his pursuit of the poontang.

Pepé once tried to take the pussy [cat] from another cat. He resorted to painting his stripe black so he looked less like a skunk, but still got beat up by the male cat. Le Pew determined it was in his best interests to sneak in and paint a white stripe down the male cat’s back to make him look like a skunk. When he encountered the female cat, she was running from the skunked-out male cat and Le Pew rescued her. He eventually got splashed in a puddle and the female cat figured out the truth about Pepé and the male cat.

Just the fact this entire ordeal was even portrayed on a cartoon aimed at children is ridiculous to me. Nevermind that most children don’t quite understand it yet, but it becomes more apparent with age exactly what Pepé did…

Chased the pussy by any means necessary…

I just wanted to share the memory.
