  Encyclopedia: Pepe Le Pew   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In a series of Warner Bros. cartoons, Pepe Le Pew (voiced by Mel Blanc imitating Charles Boyer's Pepe le Moko from Algiers (1938), a remake of the 1937 French film Pepe le Moko [1]) is a French skunk who always strolls around in Paris in the springtime, when everyone's thoughts are of love.
Normally, Pepe's romantic interests should include female skunks ("petite femme skunk"), but each episode invariably revolves around Pepe pursuing a "skunk", who, unbeknownst to him, is usually a hapless fl cat (retroactively named Penelope) that inadvertently gets a white stripe painted down her back.
Chuck Jones, Pepe's creator, says that Pepe was based (loosely) on the personality of his Termite Terrace colleague, writer Tedd Pierce, a self-styled "ladies' man" who reportedly always assumed that his infatuations were requited.

Another ingredient in the Le Pew series is the structure of the love-struck chase; the panicky cat who frantically scrambles away as a smiling Pepe hops along with leisurely aplomb, and for Jones, the Pepe series would have another distinguishing feature.

 Animation Insider - Pepe Le Pew Valentine's Day Special
That's why we decided to give Pepe Le Pew center stage this Valentine's Day-to serve as a beacon of hope to all who've loved and lost, that they too might never give up in their pursuit of romance," Marc Buhaj, vice president of programming and scheduling for Boomerang and Cartoon Network said.
Pepe's unctuous accent (provided by Looney Tunes' master-voice Mel Blanc) and irresistible personality were based on famed French actors of the period-Charles Boyer, Maurice Chevalier and others.
Pepe returned to the screen briefly in the 1990s, first in the Bugs Bunny 1995 animated parody of the 1942 classic Casablanca entitled Carrotblanca, then in the 1996 live-action/animation hit feature, Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan.

In recent years, the shorts featuring his character have been more and more downplayed and even banned as his relentless pursuit of clearly unappreciative females comes across more as sexual harassment or stalking.
She shares both faults of her predecessor, but the fact that she is a sexy female character pursuing males is currently more socially acceptable.

The French first entered my consciousness by way of Pepe Le Pew on Bugs Bunny.
As young as I was, I realized that through Pepe- a not-so-flattering point was being made about the French both in the portrayal of a Frenchman as a skunk—and by Pepe’s so obviously insincere and self-serving behavior.
Conceding all that, I was unaware of any recent contribution the French had made during the decades since my birth sufficient enough to earn them the role of World Power.
