Heaven Scent is a 1956 Merrie Melodies short directed by Chuck Jones.


While on the French Riviera, a female cat is frightened by the sudden outbursts of barking dogs. To scare them off, she paints herself with a white stripe in order to look like a skunk. Sadly for her, she is spotted by Pepe Le Pew, who thinks she is a female skunk.



  • A few scenes of this short were used in Bugs Bunny's Mad World of Television.
  • On Cartoon Network and Boomerang, this short once played in PAL audio, but it now plays in NTSC.
  • This cartoon is one of seven Pepe Le Pew cartoons in which Michael Maltese was not credited as a writer, joining "Odor-Able Kitty" (Tedd Pierce), "Odor of the Day" (Lloyd Turner), "Dog Pounded" (Warren Foster), "Two Scent's Worth" (Chuck Jones), "A Scent of the Matterhorn" (Chuck Jones), and "Louvre Come Back to Me" (John Dunn). This is also one of three Pepe cartoons which Chuck Jones both wrote and directed.
  • This cartoon is also one of eight mid-1950s Chuck Jones cartoons where layout work was done by Ernie Nordli (who was more well-known for his work at Walt Disney Studios) instead of Maurice Noble.
