Today's Featured Article - Pepé Le Pew
Pepé Le Pew is a cartoon French skunk introduced by Warner Bros. in 1945, illustrated by Cockney animators in "pen and ink." Le Pew has a Charles Boyer-like French accent and is constantly on the quest for love, independently of whether the objects of his conquest were on the quest for a gropey skunk. Happily, Le Pew's entire career was before the advent of Smell-O-Vision to the cinema, and audiences could mostly experience Le Pew at greater than nose's length.
WB executives believed their Looney Tunes catalog of short features contained nothing for the stalker and rapist communities. Le Pew was thus created by animation producer Eddie Selzer, who at various times claimed Le Pew was patterned after one of his gropey colleagues or an idealized version of himself. (more...)
The New Panama Canal is an ambitious project designed to overcome the limitations of the existing, piddling Panama Canal that bisects the equally piddling Republic of Panama. (more...)
