The first of Both Kinds!, 12 November 2002
Author: Pimpin` Critic 69 from Your Critic of Critics

This is not only the first Sylvester and Tweety short but the first Warner Bros. animated short to win an Oscar! The Oscar was well deserved and long over-due. I must point out that perhaps Friz Freleng's inspiration for this duo was Tom and Jerry. In a way this short resembles the first Tom and Jerry short. However this short is WAY better then the first Tom and Jerry short! Also if you think about it Sylvester and Tweety are basically Tom and Jerry's competition but in my opinion there is no winner! Now what I find unique about this short is that the characters are already fully developed! Then again this isn't the first Sylvester or Tweety short. They had already been introduced before. However, this is the first short where Tweety is fully developed. While Sylvester however, is a unique character cause since his first appearance he was already fully developed.
