Catstello tells the audience "If the Hays office would only let me, I'd give him the bird alright." This is a double entendre acknowledging that the Hays Code, which set the guidelines for content allowed in a motion picture, would never have allowed a movie character to "give the bird" (making an obscene sign language gesture).

Tweetie Pie's first appearance - and Sylvester is not included.
The cats included instead are Babbit and Castello, spoofs on people called Bud Abbot and Lou Castello. Tweetie Pie is a lot different from the Tweetie Pie we know today, in this episode the bird has more of a mean streak and is not yellow. The two cats are very entertaining, Castello being a plump, cowardly cat who receives most of the action and Babbit is a braver, more grown-up cat.
I quite like this Looney Tunes episode because it is funny and Tweetie Pie does a good job in his first appearance. The only things here that bothered me were the references to WWII at the time, Castello pretends to be a Spitfire (he has a large wooden plank around him that resemble wings) and he is shot at. The way he falls to the ground is surprisingly disturbing.
The plot is similar to Tweetie Pie and Sylvester plots, Tweetie Pie sees a putty tat trying to eat him and he makes sure that he does not become breakfast, lunch or dinner. In this episode, Tweetie Pie is trying to make sure he is not eaten by Castello, who is hungry. Unfortunately, Castello is not finding his job easy at all...
I recommend this is anyone who likes Tweetie Pie and to anyone who does not mind references to WWII in a cartoon. Enjoy "A Tale of Two Kitties"! :-)
