Pepe Le Pew Coming To DVD

Warner Brothers’ Pepe Le Pew is coming to DVD, with all 17 of the amorous skunk’s classic animated shorts appearances.

(Sure the cover art only indicates 15 titles, but the studio announcement states otherwise. Presumably this will get fixed before the actual release.)

Pepé Le Pew: Zee Best Of Zee Best will contain all 15 Pepe shorts directed by Chuck Jones, the one non-Jones short directed by ARt Davis and a Fritz Freleng Tweety short in which Pepe cameos. The titles on the disc include-

  • Odor-Able Kitty (1945)
  • Scent-imental Over You (1947)
  • Odor of the Day (1948)
  • For Scent-imental Reasons (1949)
  • Scent-imental Romeo (1951)
  • Little Beau Pepé (1952)
  • Wild Over You (1953)
  • Dog Pounded (1954)
  • The Cats Bah (1954)
  • Past Perfumance (1955)
  • Two Scent’s Worth (1955)
  • Heaven Scent (1956)
  • Touché and Go (1957)
  • Really Scent (1959)
  • Who Scent You? (1960)
  • A Scent of the Matterhorn (1961)
  • Louvre Come Back to Me! (1962)

While I’m sure that Pepe has his fans, I have to say that I am probably not one them. In fact, out of all of the Warner Brothers characters, he’s probably my least favorite.  I really just find him to be a one-joke character and no matter how inventive Jones would get telling that joke, it never resonated much with me.

The single-disc release will be hitting stores on December 27, just in time for you early Valentine’s Day shoppers.
