In la petite village de Nasty Passer (French for "the little village of Nasty Pass"), a burglar buys a fish from a "fishmonger" and uses it as bait to catch Penelope Pussycat (whose bowl identifies her as "Fifi" in this cartoon), on whose back he paints a white stripe to make her look like a skunk. He drops Penelope in a bank from the skylight so as to scare everyone away, which would allow him to rob the place. While walking up a hill to make a calm getaway, the burglar encounters Pepé Le Pew, to whom he says, "Don't follow me; you have served your purpose." As soon as he smells Pepé's skunk-smell, however, the burglar runs towards the city prison and intentionally incarcerates himself. Meanwhile, Pepé spots Penelope and, as usual, mistakes her for a female skunk. He runs over to her and introduces himself as her "lover;" Penelope tries to get away, but Pepé jumps into her arms, saying, "Hm. So impetuous, but nice." Penelope then runs away, whereupon Pepé says, "You know, it is not just a case of visual attraction; I admire her mind, too!" The skunk then chases the cat up a mountain, whereupon a ski-chase begins. When Penelope reaches the end of the mountain, Pepé skis by and grabs her thinking she is waiting for him, whereupon the cat hangs onto him for dear life so as to avoid falling down. "She is no longer timid." says the skunk as he opens up his heart-shaped parachute which he brought from the village. "A true gentleman must be prepared for any-zing," he says by way of explanation as to why he brought his aforementioned gear then the cartoon irises out in a heart shape.
