Remember Pepe la Pew, the cartoon skunk? Pepe would follow the lovely black feline Penelope Pussycat, who, in some episodes painted a white stripe on her back to escape dog harassment and in others she got it by accident by scooting under a newly painted white fence.
In any case, Pepe was a persistent suitor. I loved this classic cartoon as a child but now I have an entirely different respect for Pepe’s sensibilites. His character was not so far off from a real skunk’s unabashed pursuit of love this time of the year.
