The Cats Bah is a 1954 Looney Tunes short directed by Chuck Jones.

The title is a play on "casbah," a sort of fortress found in old citadels of North Africa, and the 1948 film Casbah, which features a man named Pépé le Moko who falls in love with a French tourist.

Plot

Penelope is an American tourist who by a mishap has a white stripe of paint down her back. She finds herself being chased by the love-sick Pepe Le Pew in the Casbah, who ends wooing her by doing a rendition of "As Time Goes By".

Notes

  • This is the first cartoon in which Penelope Pussycat is given her name, though her name has not been made official yet until the release of "Carrotblanca" (1995); after this cartoon's release, she went under different names/aliases in a few Pepe Le Pew shorts, for example Fifi in "Two Scent's Worth" and Fabrette in "Really Scent".

Censorship

The version shown on ABC's The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show edits out the entire beginning in which the camera assumes the point of view of a reporter interviewing Pepe, due to the presence of alcohol and cigarettes[1] (though ABC once aired the 1951 Pepe cartoon "Scent-imental Romeo" left in a similar scene of Pepe opening a bottle of champagne and serving it to the cat uncensored).
