I found this a very good Looney Tunes episode, but very sad because the main character, a little lovebird (type of parrot), wants to commit suicide. AWW. :-( The bird considers ways to die and decides the best method is to be eaten by a "kat". He finds Sylvester, who although has an owner and a comfortable home, is looking in dustbins for small scraps. The lovebird calls him over but Sylvester is suspicious of a bird wanting to be eaten...
If I had watched this episode without knowing that it was Sylvester's debut, I never would have known it was his first appearance. Compared to the first appearances of other Looney Tunes stars, his character and animation was already much more decidedly formed, along with his love for eating (normal) little birds and meat and with his "suffering succotaz!" (which before belonged to Daffy Duck).
Tweetie Pie would appear later, in 1947 in the aptly named cartoon, "Tweetie Pie". Personally I loved the (ha)lovebird almost as much as Tweetie and if he appeared in any other episodes I will certainly watch them.
I enjoyed this episode because of the love bird and how I felt for him, for Sylvester, who did very well in this episode and for the plot-line.
I recommend this to people who love Sylvester, early Looney Tunes cartoons and to people who do not mind watching an episode with Sylvester-Tweetie+a different bird. Enjoy "Life with Feathers"! :-)
