    Scent-imental Romeo Pepé Le Pew Animation Drawing (Warner Brothers, 1951). "Baby face, you've got the cutest little baby face..." sings straw hat-wearing Pepé Le Pew to Penelope Pussycat at the Paris Zoo. Penelope was starving and paints a stripe on her back to try and fool the zookeeper into running off at feeding time. She did not count on being pursued by Pepé! This is a classic Pepé LePew short, directed by Chuck Jones and written by Mike Maltese. Here is one of the best animation drawings of Pepé we have seen, with a great mid-song image measuring 4". You can see this image around the 5:25 mark. This short was released on 3/24/51. Graphite with slight red pencil highlights on 12 field 2-peghole animation paper. Dialogue from song "The Cutest" is written on the sheet. Minor handling wear, some tape on borders and fold near left border, and slightly light-struck from a previous framing; image remains pristine. Good overall condition.
