oh, i have to say – the ending in this one is a bit weak (i thought). there are other ones with better endings.
i was watching pepe le pew cartoons this afternoon, and saw one that ends with his wife (!) catching him.
maybe it’s difficult to get good endings for pepe.
sometimes i think the same way about cyote/road runner endings; but there seems to be a sense of continuation with the road runner – you know the cyote will endlessly end up blowing himself up instead of catching the road runner.
There were a few rules over at the WB studios, and this included who wins and who loses. Fritz Freleng and the rest ensured that there was a familiar pattern, and that the losers would always lose. Amongst the perpetual losers were Elmer Fudd, Yosemite Sam, the Coyote, (most famously) Daffy Duck, and well…Pepe Le Pew.
You know, if you go hunting for WB cartoons again, and you find “Duck Amuck”, post it…it’s postively one of the best WB cartoons in existence!
