On a cold winter day, a dog that is looking for a place to stay sneaks into a cabin with a fire and a cozy bed. However, he does have a rival, Pepé Le Pew, for the bed. The two battle by spraying each other with scents. Pepé has his foul odor, while the dog has his perfume. The two then dive into a frozen lake in an attempt to remove the smells and they catch colds in the process. Now unable to smell each other's scents, the two decide to share the bed together.
This cartoon is the first Pepé Le Pew cartoon not directed by Chuck Jones (or a member from Chuck Jones' unit) and the only one to depict Pepé Le Pew as a screwball comic character instead of the usual lovesick character.
Arthur Davis is the first animation director other than Chuck Jones to direct a cartoon featuring Pepé Le Pew, the second is Friz Freleng in the cartoon "Dog Pounded" (albeit in here Pepé only makes a cameo at the end), and the third is Abe Levitow from Chuck Jones' unit in the cartoon "Really Scent".
This is the first time Pepé uses his bad odor as a weapon. The second time is in "Touché and Go" where Pepé uses his bad odor to scare away a shark.
Wellington sneezed eleven times while Pepé sneezed twice.
Pepé and Wellington have no lines of dialogue in this cartoon, save for only one line at the end of the cartoon "Gesundheit!". In addition, Pepé's speaking voice here lacks the familiar French accent, but he is still voiced by Mel Blanc.
The original closing titles are presumed to be lost, as the DVD version of the cartoon uses the 1957-59 Merrie Melodies ending title card. However, the original ending titles survive on a pre-restorted Brazilian TV airing but the original opening rings are replaced by the 1957-1959 blue rings and the opening credits are removed along with the LT theme being replaced with a short MM ending theme playing on both the opening card and the ending card.
