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

Title

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".

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 it should be noted that ABC once aired the 1951 Pepe cartoon "Scent-imental Romeo" and left the entire scene of Pepe opening a bottle of champagne and serving it to the cat uncensored).
