Penelope

Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004

    Name now given to the usually black female cat who is usually unlucky enough (or, perhaps, lucky enough) to acquire a white stripe, thus making her the object of the affections of Pépe le Pew in a number of cartoons. I believe Cats Bah (Jones, 1954) is the only cartoon that actually identifies the cat as Penelope, when she is addressed by her owner as she is being walked on a leash.
