The best Tweety short, 30 October 2005
Author: movieman_kev from United States

Sylvester (here called Thomas) the cat first meets Tweety bird in the debut cartoon of the duo that would go onto star in a great many lackluster efforts. This was the best of the bunch which trust me isn't saying that much at all as I actively loathe Tweety bird as a character and always tried to avoid his shorts when I was a kid. Perhaps if the first one didn't win an Oscar the Tweety shorts wouldn't have been so numerous, but who knows, perhaps that's merely wishful thinking on my part. This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 and also features an optional commentary by Greg Ford.

My Grade: B
