* AllThereInTheManual: The female cat Pepe chased went through a string of names per short, though official media and merchandise almost always refers to her as Penelope.
* AluminumChristmasTrees: Will a 21st century viewer be familiar with the hoary old stereotype that French people are smelly and horny?

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

* 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 SkunkStripe down her back who actually ''did'' have a thing for him from the start. There's also the ''Chihuahua'' he once chased after, too.

** The ending to "Odor-Able Kitty" also counts, though rather loosely for two reasons: [[spoiler: (a) the "female skunk" he was chasing was actually a male cat who painted himslef up as a skunk so he can get back at the butcher, housewife, and pitbull who keep beating him up, and (b) the ending revealed that Pepe wasn't French and was married with two kids]].

* 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 actual outcome is almost always different.

** Incidentally the Pepe formula were made to avert this, since they were among the few series in he ''Looney Tunes'' series not to utilise the "Karmic Trickster vs IneffectualSympatheticVillain" dynamic. Pepe, in Jones' own words, was unique by being "a character who just wanted to get laid".

Added DiffLines:

* TheVoiceless: Penelope almost never spoke besides grunts or meow noises. The exception being the revival short "Carrotblanca", which inexplicably gives her a proper speaking role with a British accent.

* BlackComedyRape: Presumably not the intention of the character in his original incarnation, which was to {{parody}} {{romantic comed|y]]ies, but this trope is a common interpretation of Pepe's cartoonishly extreme womanizing, albeit a light example.

* BlackComedyRape: By today's standards, thanks to ValuesDissonance and Dave Chappelle's comedy piece from "Killing 'Em Softly" about how the cartoons and children's shows enjoyed when one was younger carry an unintentional dirty side when viewed through adult eyes. Otherwise, it's just a RomanticComedy that's been [[{{Parody}} turned on its head]] and, despite the trope name, the comedy rape is a bit more light-hearted (though still dubious thanks in part to ValuesDissonance) than what's seen in other examples.

* DrivenToSuicide: In "Really Scent," the Penelope cat is so depressed over her failed romance with Pepe that she nearly drowns herself. The narrator convinces her to try a different tack, since "if you can't beat them, join them."
