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


While on the French Riviera, a female cat gets frightened from 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.
  • When shown on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, this short plays in PAL audio.
  • 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 in which Chuck Jones both wrote and directed it.
