* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Pepe Le Pew was supposed to be a [[OneSceneWonder one-cartoon wonder]] ([[spoiler:which explains why "Odor-Able Kitty" ended with Pepe revealed to be an adulterous husband whose French accent was faked]]). Had it not been for Eddie Selzer rather nastily claiming that the Pepe cartoons weren't funny, Chuck wouldn't have continued them.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: In one of Chuck Jones's autobiographies, he states that animation writer Tedd Pierce was this CasanovaWannabe type guy who would always hit on women and chalk up their rejection of him as "She's flirting" or "She's playing hard to get." This, coupled with exaggerating the stereotype of "zee great French lovair" and Chuck Jones's own insecurities about picking up women, is the basis of Pepe's persona.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: A few of the cats Pepe chased who ''weren't'' Penelope haven't been brought up again in any media he's been in for well over decades now. Some of them include; the orange ''male'' cat he chased in his first short, the wildcat that broke out from the zoo, or Fabrette, a cat with a natural SkunkStrpe down her back who actually ''did'' have a thing for him from the start. There's also the ''Chihuahua'' he once chased after, too.

'''''Pepe Le Pew''''' is one of the more famous WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes ever created, although he's not quite as big as some of the other 'core' cast members of the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes skits. He first appeared in the [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1945]] short "Odor-Able Kitty", although it wasn't until the 1949 short 'For Scent-imental Reasons' that the standard formula for his skits were set in stone.

* AbhorrentAdmirer: One of the few rare male examples, and possibly the most popular when one wants to prove that not all {{abhorrent admirer}}s are women who are [[HollywoodUgly ugly]], [[HollywoodPudgy fat]], or [[{{Yandere}} driven crazy by love]]. Penelope the cat, however, is a straight example (on the occasions where Pepe gets what he deserves).

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: "Odor of the Day" is the only Pepe cartoon that isn't a RomanticComedy (it's your typical Looney Tunes screwball comedy) and one of two Pepe shorts that isn't directed by Creator/ChuckJones (three if you count the random cameo at the end of the Sylvester and Tweety cartoon, "Dog Pounded"). "Odor of the Day" was directed by Arthur Davis. It's also the only Pepe cartoon in which Pepe is TheVoiceless ([[SubvertedTrope until the end]], in which he says "Gesundheit" to the sneezing dog).

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: There have been several hints in recent revivals that Penelope actually does have feelings for Pepe, and most recent material to come out (such as the ''Bah Humduck'' Christmas special and the Valentine's Day commerical) seems to suggest that officially they are in fact a couple.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: While all the cartoons by today's standards can be seen as risque to some extent (the premise is, after all, a StealthPun on chasing pussy[[spoiler:cats]]), it's truly amazing that [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode the Hays Office]] didn't go after Creator/ChuckJones and Michael Maltese for "Wild Over You" due to the implications that Pepe [[TooKinkyToTorture enjoys being clawed up by the wildcat trying to escape him]] (though the fact that Jones and Maltese deliberately did this is more of a RefugeInAudacity).

* SpiritualSuccessor and DistaffCounterpart: On ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', there's Fifi La Fume, who acts just like Pepe (except that she likes it when men go after her), right down to mistaking black and white striped animals for male skunks (though it was revealed that she has a crush on Pepe Le Pew on an episode where Elmyra thinks Fifi is a kitty).

* StrictlyFormula: Zigzagged. A lot of the cartoons do follow a formula of the cat gets painted and Pepe spends the rest of the cartoon chasing her, but the outcome is almost always different.
