The title is a play on "Past Performance", horse-racing stats published by the Daily Racing Form.
It's 1913, and in Paris, Pepé Le-Pew finds the latest love of his life, Penelope Pussycat. Pepé finds her in the scene of Romeo and Juliet, but she runs away. Then, he walks into The Three Musketeers, two actors went in and Pepé scares them away by jumping in. Pepé finds Penelope in the projection box, but she runs away. Then, Pepé goes in the film which he lets the projectionists out because of his stench, and he also lets the man and woman dash out the picture and find Penelope Pussycat. Pepé gives chase around the Uncle Tom set, the Icy set and a Tarzan set which Pepé plays as Tarzan swinging to Penelope. She then jumps into a pool of water which that white stripe comes off, so Pepé paints his stripe black and runs after her.
- This is the first time Pepé finds out the Penelope is not a skunk, yet still chases after her.
