Tweety's detractors need only watch his early stuff to like him
2 October 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

A lot of people dislike Tweety because they consider him too cute. If only they knew about his first few appearances! In cartoons like "A Tale of Two Kitties" and "A Gruesome Twosome", the little guy was the meanest SOB (son of a bird) imaginable. In this case, two cats try to win the heart of a woman, but Tweety always interferes...in the most sadistic way possible.

Yes, Tweety did not start out as the daintily attractive character known to most people today. I believe that he started heading in that direction once they gave him feathers. You see, the studio heads alleged that he looked naked. However - as Bob Clampett pointed out in "Bugs Bunny Superstar" - in all those years, they never noticed that Porky Pig walked around with no pants.

Anyway, this is a funny one.
