Pepe Le Pew

One thing about living in abroad... you get used to people not getting movie and tv references that everyone back in the US would understand. And as someone who is mildly obsessed with movies, I sometimes find it hard to explain myself in simple language. Yes, sometimes I talk in script.

Tonight Atsh and I had a funny conversation about the different ways men approach women and I told him that some follow the "Pepe le Pew technique," which tends not to work. Sadly, Atsh had never heard of Pepe le Pew. (And, in fact, no one here ever gets my Pepe le Pew references, so it's not Atsh's fault. Pepe also happens to be one of the most under-utilized of the Looney Tunes crew, and never suffered the overexposure that Bugs and the Roadrunner had to deal with.) That is, until tonight, when I went on YouTube and found....THIS. Atsh is now a Pepe fan too.

Behold, Pepe in all his glory.

The best! Wonder how Pepe LePew would react to a female mouffette as he is always chasing le chat. Perhaps THEN he would have his chance to say "Le peww..le pewww..!". I am sure there is an episode somewhere out there.

But it is good Pepe was never over exposed.
After all the premise for his appearances was quite framed - he chases cat, he is being chased by the cat.. well, that's it. You can't make more series about that than there is.
(even though they already went out of ideas with the last, I just love genius dialogue and life references creators included).

One of best characters of the great Looney Tunes IMO.
