Mike Myers Lending Hilarious Accent to CGI Pepe Le Pew

October 7, 2010


With Yogi's time in the spotlight quickly approaching, you knew there had to be another cartoon character, needlessly given three-dimensions and a celebrity voice, waiting in the wings. But whom??? Pepe Le Pew, everyone! Vulture has news Mike Myers has been signed to voice the amorous skunk in a new film that, of course, blends talking CGI animals and straining live actors into one deliciously family-friendly cocktail. I guess Steve Martin's Pink Panther accent wasn't ridiculous enough for them.

Per usual for the character, the story will follow Pepe and he aggressively attempts romantic pursuit of a painted cat he mistakes for a ladyskunk. Considering how much this genre is already plagued with bizarre over-sexualization, I fully expect the first trailer to be a five-minute long single take of Pepe violently assaulting Penelope Pussycat so graphically it will shame even Gaspar Noé.
