* This artwork was inspired by the famous "Lady and the Tramp" scene of Lady and Tramp eating spaghetti before they unintentionally kiss.
* Staying true to form of Pepe's Parisian roots, "They Eat Pasta Too," is set among a Paris street with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
* A long-standing tradition of Warner Bros. was to spoof other studios' animation, feature films and television programs. Bob Clampett, for example, satirized such Disney greats as "Fantasia" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" with "Corny Concerto" and "Coal Black and the Sebben Dwarfs."
* While reknown Warner Bros background artist, Hector Martinez has painted the Paris background that glistens in both Pepe and Penelope's gaze, Juan Ortiz's characterization of two starry-eyed would-be lovers belies the usual pursuit that marks Pepe and Penelope's two-decades long cartoon pairing.
