* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: None of the French is real. More often than not, it's just English with a prefix of "le."

* 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."

'''''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 [[UsefulNotes/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.

shorts provide examples of the following tropes:



* DrivenToSuicide: In one of the more infamous gags these shorts have pulled off, "For Scent-imental Reasons" has Penelope locking herself into a glass display case, with Pepé unable to continue chasing her. Penelope denies his requests to come out, outright telling him through miming that he stinks. Depressed, Pepé pulls out a gun, points it to his head, walks off screen, and shoots it. [[spoiler:It turns out he faked it after Penelope comes running after him to make sure he's alright.]] It's jarring enough to modern viewers that this scene has often been {{Bowdlerised}} out of modern airings.

* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:The glass case scene in "For Scentimental Reasons" ended with Pepe putting a gun to his head and supposedly killing himself after Penelope says that she's not coming out because he stinks. Penelope is so distraught that she unlocks the case and runs out -- into his still-alive arms. Turns out the whole thing was a trick to get her out and he missed]].



* SceneryPorn, ArtEvolution, and AnimationBump: Starting with "For Scentimental Reasons," the backgrounds of the cartoons got a lot prettier, lusher, detailed, and more evocative of romance than the ones from the first three Pepe cartoons (two, if you don't count the Arthur Davis cartoon that had Pepe in it). Peter Alvarado did background work on the Pepe cartoons up until 1956's "Heaven Scent." From "Heaven Scent" to the final cartoon in 1962 ("Louvre Come Back to Me"), Maurice Noble did background work on the cartoons.



** Another one ends with the object of his affections no longer able to smell his stink and coming after him. Unfortunately, she this is because she get soaked and left out in the cold, ending up looking like a twice-drowned rat put through the ringer and so sick she can't go two seconds without sniffing, sneezing or coughing. Pepe was [[AbhorrentAdmirer less than enthusiastic that she now wanted the suave skunk]].

** Not unless they look it up online or know someone who is familiar with the stereotype.
