From PopKorn Kat :

There’s some controversy over whether Pepe Le Pew and the skunk from this short are the same character or not. Warner Bros. takes the former stance, as this short has been included on the “Pepe Le Pew’s Skunk Tales” and “Zee Best of Zee Best” videos. Remember that Pepe was referred to as just “Stinky” on model sheets for “Forever Ambushed”, a working title for “Scent-imental Over You”. (As far as I know, original titles to “Odor-able Kitty” and “Scent-imental Over You” have yet to be found. Pepe’s name is mentioned on the Blue Ribbon titles for the latter, though.) I have serious doubts that the skunk in this short and Pepe are one and the same – while their designs are close, that’s where the similarities end. There’s no French accents or lady-pursuing in Davis’ short, but we do get a one-on-one fight between a dog and a skunk.

From PopKorn Kat :

I feel I need to issue a correction. I have been notified by tashlinfan44 and nickramer that the skunk in this short was indeed Pepe Le Pew, according to Thad on Cartoon Logic. So...disregard my last comment. I...haven't listened to Cartoon Logic in a while. (sweat)
