"Pepe [Le Pew] was set to appear in a black-and-white Casablanca-like Rick’s Cafe sequence. Pepe, playing a bartender, starts hitting on a woman at the bar..."

"He begins kissing her arm, which she pulls back, then slamming Pepe into the chair next to hers. She then pours her drink on Pepe, and slaps him hard, sending him spinning in a stool, which is then stopped by LeBron James’ hand. James and Bugs Bunny are looking for Lola, and Pepe knows her whereabouts. Pepe then tells the guys that Penelope cat has filed a restraining order against him. James makes a remark in the script that Pepe can’t grab other Tunes without their consent...." 

From "Pepe Le Pew Won’t Be Appearing In Warner Bros’ ‘Space Jam’ Sequel" (Deadline Hollywood). 

The actress, Greice Santo, is unhappy to have her big scene cut: "Even though Pepe is a cartoon character, if anyone was going to slap a sexual harasser like him, Greice wished it would be her. Now... she doesn’t have that power to influence the world through younger generations who’ll be watching Space Jam 2, to let younger girls and younger boys know that Pepe’s behavior is unacceptable."

If I remember the old cartoons correctly, the other cartoon characters always let Pepe know his behavior was unacceptable... though I think that was mainly because they were cats and he was a skunk.

I don't know if that read as racism — Was the problem that he was a different species? —  or were we to think their objection was simply that he smelled bad — which really was, I think, an insult intentionally directed at the French.  

As for this new movie, maybe instruction about sexual harassment didn't fit the mood of whatever the story was or maybe LeBron James doesn't have the acting chops to pull off a sincere warning against sexual misdeeds.

From the Wikipedia article on Pepe Le Pew, under the subheading "Reputation":

Pepé's reputation suffered in later years. Comedian Dave Chappelle, in his 2000 stand-up film Killin' Them Softly, called him a rapist. In a 2021 column in The New York Times, Charles M. Blow wrote that Pepé "normalized rape culture". Amber E. George, in her essay "Pride or Prejudice? Exploring Issues of Queerness, Speciesism, and Disability in Warner Bros. Looney Tunes", characterized Pepé's actions towards Penelope Pussycat as "sexual harassment, stalking, and abuse" and noted that Pepé's qualities mock the French people and their culture. On March 7, 2021, it was announced Pepé Le Pew have been removed from Space Jam: A New Legacy.

If you're interested in reading that Amber E. George essay, it's in "The Intersectionality of Critical Animal, Disability, and Environmental Studies: Toward Eco-ability, Justice, and Liberation." That will cost you $73 even just to download it in Kindle!

As for Charles Blow, the Le Pew bit is just a line in his column about the Dr. Seuss problem: "Six Seuss Books Bore a Bias/Racism must be exorcised from culture, including, or maybe especially, from children’s culture."

Racism must be exorcised from culture, including, or maybe especially, from children’s culture. Teaching a child to hate or be ashamed of themselves is a sin against their innocence and a weight against their possibilities.
Exorcised?! I think the word he was looking for the word "excised." Or are we possessed by an evil spirit that can be driven out by performing some ritual? If you're talking about editing things out of the culture — which is what is really going on — the word is"excised."

"Racism must be exorcised from culture..."

Exorcised or excised, the race-obsessed will never have enough social justice to satisfy them. After all the books they've burned and banned, all the people they've canceled - do you think they will say they've made society better? No, society will always be awful, that's what keeps them going. They're riding that racism horse hard, and it will never reach the finish line.

Sebastian said...

"Exorcised?! I think the word he was looking for the word "excised.""

No. Sorry. We are evil. You are evil. The country is evil. It is possessed by evil

"Or are we possessed by an evil spirit that can be driven out by performing some ritual?"

Yes. Except evil always still lurks, to be trotted out for politcial advantage. No exorcism is final.

"If you're talking about editing things out of the culture — which is what is really going on — the word is"excised.""

But the point of the editing is not just to scorch the earth and crush the deplorables but also to take and hold power. Mere excising is not enough.

Our children are too stupid to understand it's a skunk... and a cartoon.... made in a different era. It's a skunk kissing a kitties arm... and she has a painted stripe down her back from a painting accident. oh - the humanity.

Pepe le Pew was a caricature of Charles Boyer's Pepe le Moko in the film Algiers (1938), in which he woos Hedy Lamarr quite warmly.

Blow definitely meant 'exorcised'. Just as with communist revolutions, all traces of the old culture must be erased and eradicated lest their spirits foul the agenda of the New Order. Because the New Order knows that its ideology won't stand up to honest debate.

Voodoo is a very common African religion.

One of the tenets of voodoo is that enemies cast evil spells.

The “systemic racism” thing is whites casting evil spells on blacks. You can’t see it, but we’re doing it.

So, Blow, is referring to his voodoo roots. You call the witch doctor to drive out the evil spirits and get revenge on your enemies for casting an evil spell upon you.

This is, I’m convinced, what all of this undefinable racism is all about.

Rory said...

"Bob Newhart show when a French psychiatrist came to visit for a conference"

When I read about le Pew I was wondering if this guy was in trouble, too. Wonderful stereotype played by Rene Auberjenois.

Blow wins, of course. If he can retire one cartoon or even one line then it's a win. If he just has us chasing his squirrel it's a win. Again, the only way we win is to put everything from the 20th century in the public domain. Deny the huge media companies their royalty streams and their neverending sequels. Make them come up with new ideas. Make them scramble for an audience beyond the urban 18-49s.

I like it. And it makes a lot of sense because the biggest believers in systemic racism are upper middle class white progressives: the kind of people who "fucking love science," go to church twice a year at most, and have generally replaced traditional religion with a blend of progressive politics and pop culture consoomerism.

Shouting Thomas said...

The actual cause of black failure is low IQ and bad family and personal habits.

Whites are not casting evil spells on blacks. We are required, in fact, to kiss blacks’ asses ritually in every aspect of our lives.

Whites who get caught up in the voodoo delusions of black culture make things a lot worse, and there are a lot of whites doing that.

Pepe Le Pew, was a skunk. HE stank. That's why the female cats wanted to get away from him. Its a cartoon. But yeah, it could have been RACSIM, assuming cats are a RACE, which they are not. The only interesting thing about this nonsense, is the motivation of the liberal bourgeoise females who go along with this nonsense. I think they get a big kick of censoring and destroying things, all in the name of being "concerned" and "Anti-whatever".

Personally, I always liked Pepe. I know my mother if she saw me watching it as a kid on Tv, would look at it for 30 seconds and laugh. which she never did with Bugs, Daffy, or Underdog. Oh, she also liked The Penguin - what's his name - that Don Adams did the voice of. Its only later that i found out all this stuff had been made in the 40s, 50s, and early60s.

It'll be interesting to see where this stops, since even though the SJW's are a small minority, there is ZERO organized and motivated opposition. We've been doing the "This is crazy" and "How can they censor that?!" schtick for over 10 years and expressing OUTRAGE or CONCERN, accomplishes nothing.

So, they'll just keep on censoring and destroying till THEY decide to stop.

We have a generation of rapists thanks to pepe.

But all the movies with head's in boxes, and limbs severed by chain saws, and psychopathic murderers who kill you with cow-death-machines and rape and anal sex with Sharon Stone and bottle sucking Maddonas at the movies - why that has nothing to do with the coarsening of our culture. It's all pepe's fault.

Churchy LaFemme: said...

I think Pepe's last star turn was in 1995's Carrotblanca, which was a new crew realizing that Warner's still owned the rights to Casablanca, and trying to do it in the High Termite Terrace style. On the whole it works quite well (although Tweety as Peter Lore is jarring..), and Pepe is cast as you have probably already guessed.

The link goes to "Daily Motion", which I hate for the glitches, but Warners has managed to keep full versions of the Looney Tunes shorts almost wholly off of youtube.

(I had to buy a ticket to The Amazing Panda Aventure to see this short, btw).

Deevs said...

I watched Pepe Le Pew cartoons as a kid. If there's anything I took from those cartoons it was that I shouldn't try to force myself romantically onto someone else. So, I'll believe Charles Blow's idea that Pepe "perpetuates rape culture" if someone can find me an example of an accused rapist using the defense "Pepe made me do it".

“Pepe le Pew was a caricature of Charles Boyer's Pepe le Moko in the film Algiers (1938), in which he woos Hedy Lamarr quite warmly.”

I think that what a lot of people ignore is that guys often act that way, because it works, and it works because it makes the women involved feel good about themselves. My partner’s ethnically French father made a lot of women a bit happier by flirting with them. He never strayed from his marriage vows, but easily could have on numerous occasions. He only had to resort to mentioning that his wife’s nickname was “Annie Oakley” for her prowess with firearms. Most of the time they knew that his constant flirting was innocent fun.

His daughter, my partner, who has been evading male attention, and shutting down guys like Pepe, for her entire adulthood, can’t understand why that sort of moves by guys would ever work (except, as the loving daughter, could see how her father’s charm would be effective). I tell her that it is the romance, the fantasy. And that she, unlike many, if not most, women is not a romantic. Many, if not most, women have a romantic side, and really do want to live the fantasy for at least a short bit, that they really are so compelling that the guys cannot help themselves from crossing the lines of public propriety when wooing them.

The goal of all this would be better served by identifying the offending words and ideas and explaining why they are offensive. Of course, that would take too much work and time so cancel it is.

Balfegor said...

He normalises "rape culture" in the same way that suspect statistics like 29% of women are victims of rape or attempted rape on college campus normalises rape itself. The latter transforms rape from something extreme, and outside the bounds of ordinary experience, into something that's actually quite commonplace and humdrum. I think that picture of rape is . . . utterly false, to say the least, but it certainly does send young men the message that "everyone's doing it."

On a more serious note, Pepe le Pew is a stereotype of a Continental lover (French, Italian, whatever), and if anything, tends to socialise young girls to reject the aggressive Continental approach to courtship, by modelling disgust and aversion at sexually aggressive approaches (and, yes, stereotyping Europeans as stinky). Implicitly, this elevates the more reserved middle class Anglo-American approach to courtship, although it is only implicit, never modelled directly that I can recall.

Temujin said...

Misguided, mal-informed, totalitarian journalists must be exorcised from our society. How's that, Charles Blow? Like it when they come for you? Nah. You probably don't. But you'd use 'Racism' then, right?

Pepe LePew was a stereotype of a 'typical' French man circa the 50's and 60's. The American caricature of a French lover. A great cartoon character who did not inform any young boys that this was anything but a funny cartoon. If this generation is put off by this, and actually thinks that it creates future MeTooers, they need to sit home and never leave their homes. Next thing you know we'll see Andrew Cuomo blaming his tendency to fondle other women on his childhood hours of Pepe LePew watching.

It's a big world out there. Many more people than there are American Regressives. And most of those people have hundreds of years of culture. They'll listen to you for a minute, shrug, and go back to what they've always done. My advice to the corporations, academicians, Journalists!, and athletes who seem to be preaching and teaching everyone to be constantly offended is to get over yourselves. No one takes you seriously anymore. You are laughable and creating a generation of bedwetters. And frankly- you just sound vacuous and stupid.

Besides, I used Pepe LePew's methods to attract my wife.

I'll buy that "Pepé's actions" constituted "sexual harassment, stalking, and abuse." None of those are "rape," and they were some of the least brutal things that a Looney Tunes character attempted (e.g. shooting, stabbing, electrocuting, eating, blowing up with TNT, tying to railroad tracks, dropping heavy objects from high spots, etc.).

Racism must be exorcised from culture, including, or maybe especially, from children’s culture.

Racism cannot be exorcised (or excised) from a multi-racial society.

Teaching a child to hate or be ashamed of themselves is a sin against their innocence and a weight against their possibilities.

I agree, but dated humor from the 30s and 40s cannot not teach "a child to hate or be ashamed of themselves." That is something that comes from interpersonal relationships. And even then, very rarely is it ever something that is "taught" to the child but rather something the child acquires.

Ann - “exorcised” is the word the writer meant. The hardcore left does want to exorcise everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that they deem unworthy from society. The problem with that attitude, is what is deemed worthy by the hard left today is unworthy tomorrow. Their morals (or what passes for their morals) is a “living, breathing document “, just like how they view the US Constitution. Good people must draw a line in the sand NOW before these insane people totally destroy our country and society..

One of the things that puzzles me is how the actresses of the '40s movies, like Ginger Rogers and Katharine Hepburn, but also plenty of lesser stars or supporting actresses, always knew how to handle a man's unwanted advances.

Well, OK, the scriptwriters, some of whom were women, always knew how to handle unwanted advances. But those actresses set fantastic examples onscreen of taking-no-shtt. I don't see enough current movies to speak intelligently about how Hollywood handles the issue today, but we are beseiged by cases in the headlines in which the women can only talk about how helpless they are.

How is it that the women in "pre-feminist" America were so resilient and capable -- while the products of the feminist movement are so whiny and pathetic?

Ann Althouse said...

"No. Sorry. We are evil. You are evil. The country is evil. It is possessed by evil"

No, you are getting exorcism wrong. To say "exorcism" is to say that we are NOT evil, but an external spirit has gotten into us and can be forced to leave, thus allowing our goodness to manifest itself.

Blow doesn't think stopping publishing certain books and things like that will remove the evil that lies within us. He just wants to edit them out of the external communications between us. That does nothing to remove the evil within. Therefore "exorcism" is the wrong word.

Ann Althouse said...

I believe the usage "toons" started with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

The "tunes" in "Looney Tunes" is consistent with "Merrie Melodies." Cartoons were associated with music in the Warner Brothers world:

"The origins of the Merrie Melodies series begin with the failure of a live action series of musical shorts called Spooney Melodies, which featured popular songs of the day. These shorts included segments with a popular artist singing along with appropriate background sequences. Warner Bros. wanted to promote this music because they had recently acquired (in 1930) the ownership of Brunswick Records along with four music publishers for US $28 million. Because of the success of their Looney Tunes series, Warner Bros. decided to develop a new series of animated musical shorts called Merrie Melodies. Hugh Harman and Rudolf Ising led the development. It was meant to be a series of musical cartoons that featured hit songs of the day, especially those then owned by Warner Bros. and featured in their musical films."

"I believe the usage "toons" started with "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?""

That's where I remember it beginning recently, but it was a re-beginning, because I see (in the OED) that "toon" for "cartoon originally appeared in "Terry-Toons" — the cartoons produced by Paul Terry and his company.

1940 N.Y. Times 7 July ix. 3/2 The producer..is Paul Terry and the casts of his Terrytoons are the blithe genii that reside in the inkwells and palettes of several score artists and craftsmen.

Originaly the distinction between "Looney Tunes" & "Merrie Melodies" was that the later were in color. (And had different theme songs, of course, "Merrily We Roll Along" vs "The Merry-go-round Broke Down").

Which did more to "normalize" rape culture: Pepe LePew, or William Jefferson Clinton?

Fernandinande said...

No. Sorry. We are evil. You are evil. The country is evil. It is possessed by evil

You got it. According to Blow, the "entire system" is evil.

Blow: "We must strike at the root: that the entire system operates in a way that is anti-black, that it disadvantages and even punishes blackness, that part of your privilege is built on my oppression."

And Blow mentions St. Floyd, of course. Besides using the word "strike" [at the entire system] there are other implied threats in that dopey column:

"How will [white people] respond when true equality threatens their privilege, when it actually starts to cost them something?"

Unknown said...

There's a breed of humour that takes offensive behavior (no one thought that Pepe Le Pew wasn't offensive) and turns it up to 11. The ridiculous nature of it makes it funny.
Like a kick in the nuts, it's funny when it happens to someone else.
If you try to his actions seriously, of course it isn't funny. But then neither is a kick in the nuts if it happens to you. But Pepe Le Pew's behavior was never meant to be taken seriously. It was mean to be viewed as ridiculous.

Greg The Class Traitor said...

The pussycats are white females

Pepe is a black male

The pussycats are therefore racists

Oh, wait

The pussycats are cis heterosexual males

Pepe is a "trans heterosexual female" (i.e. a gay guy who pretends he's a woman)

The pussycats are therefore trans-phobic, and must be cancelled

It's time to cancel anyone attacking poor Pepe Le Lew!

Gee, this is fun!

Yeah, like each of us White devils wakes up in the morning and asks himself "what can I do to oppress Charlie the Blowhard today?" Is this guy the victim's victim or what?

bleh said...

I seriously doubt Dave Chappelle supports "canceling" Pepe Le Pew. You can laugh about his standup bit and still think Pepe is a fine cartoon character for children to watch. Anyone with half a brain is able to tell that Pepe, a creepy French guy, isn't really a role model for how to treat women. In fact, Pepe gets his ass handed to him repeatedly while in pursuit of the female cat, deservedly so. And it's funny.

I never once thought his style of aggressive pursuit was a good one. I took it as a lesson in what not to do.

Witness said...

Did anyone come away from those cartoons thinking Pepe le Pew was anything less than obnoxious? Isn't that part of why it was so easy to laugh when he got hurt?

Like, it's pretty easy to look back and note the following messages:
1) this kind of bad behavior exists, here is an example
2) acting like this is foreign behavior, not something we expect/accept from our own community/culture (apparently when localized to French audiences, Pepe is rebranded as an Italian)
3) it's bad, and it's funny to see it end badly for the perp

Somehow this has been misinterpreted as promoting rape culture, instead of opposing it.

Nonapod said...

I'm kind surprised it took this long to "cancel" Pepe. I guess most woke puritans probably either forgot about him or never knew who the character was in the first place.

As for the new Space Jam, I wish more people were more concerned about some of Lebron James's positions, his downplaying the Chinese governments use of slave labor and their behavior towards Hong Kong protesters and the like. As usual, a lot of people's priorities seem a bit odd.

I suspect that men weren't quite as pushy back then since they (the men) knew that going too far with a woman would result in at the least a nasty beating by her male relatives. Also, women had to consider that their reputations would go out the window if they gave in too easily and that was worse than telling some asshole to fuck off, even if it was the governor's son.

Personally, I always liked Pepe. I know my mother if she saw me watching it as a kid on Tv, would look at it for 30 seconds and laugh. which she never did with Bugs, Daffy, or Underdog. Oh, she also liked The Penguin - what's his name - that Don Adams did the voice of. Its only later that i found out all this stuff had been made in the 40s, 50s, and early60s.

Attempting to impeach Biden is tantamount to attempting to reverse the election, which in turn is literally the same thing as insurrection and treason. The latter is a death-penalty offense, but if you voluntarily turn yourself in to the nearest Committee for the Defense of the Revolution, maybe the tribunal will show you leniency.

I also remember watching Tiny Toon Adventures on Saturday mornings in the early 90s, but I can only remember the theme song.

All women LOVE romantically forward men like Pepe LePew, a character based on Pépé le Moko, an archetype created by the most influential French film in history, if not for the sexual frisson, for the opportunity to practice consequence-free violence such a bold man offers.

Consequence-free violence is itself very sexually fulfilling for a certain type of person, the kind that favors totalitarian government. (They ain't called feminazis, for nuthin', ladies.) So slap away, girls. Defund the police. Dismantle Western civilization. Let's see how you like a state of nature.

So, Pepe is a skunk of black and white. Oscar is a grouch of green. Big Bird is, well, a bird of yellow; Odie, a canine of yellow, too. Garfield is a pussy, without a hat, of orange. The Hound of the Baskervilles was a canine of black. They are all male sex. Pepe of of male sex and masculine gender chases girls, but no couches, no pornographic "benefits", sexual assault, perhaps, but not rape, and certainly not rape-rape, a socially forward-looking romantic that leaves no "burdens" behind in a carbon-neutral existence.
