This release collects all of the Jones unit's cartoons featuring Pepè Le Pew in one neat little package, and makes no discriminations or reviled alterations like earlier "Super Stars" releases did. Everything is present and accounted for in full-screen, and none of that "1954 and on only" nonsense (making the excuses for the selection on the Foghorn Leghorn release pretty flimsy). The cartoons look absolutely stunning too, allowing one to truly appreciate the work of designers like Robert Gribbroek and Maurice Noble.
In spite of this being a selection of cartoons from one of the most important animation directors of all time at the height of his power, poor Pepè's cartoons don't exactly shine when stacked in a row like this, given that nearly all of the cartoons follow FOR SCENT-IMENTAL REASONS' formula - a black cat gets a white stripe on her back and Pepè tries to woo her. It's not Jones and Maltese at their most creative; these were their bread-and-butter pictures after all. Still, the Pepè formula doesn't embrace a hip iconic status like that of the Road Runner series.Read more ›

This one finally got it right. While there are no special features, the majority of the cartoons are new to DVD, and all are dazzlingly restored. Plus, it's the complete filmography of one of Chuck Jones' most enduring characters.
If you're not familiar with Pepe Lew Pew, here's the idea: A cat (or the occasional other species) paints herself to look like a skunk on purpose or by accident, and is pursued by the amorous French skunk. While most of Pepe's victims have little objection to his romantic advances, they quickly smell him and have second thoughts.
Although they're formulaic, and a few of these cartoons in one sitting is more than enough, they're still funny, and if you like Pepe, Chuck Jones and the hilarious writing of Mike Maltese, buying this is a no-brainer.
