It is only today that I realized..., 2 July 2008
Author: Mightyzebra from Scotland

...that this was the first episode where Sylvester and Tweetie Pie star together. When I first watched this, I presumed it was one of the first, as Sylvester seemed to be called Thomas and the granny was not featured, but little did I realise it was the very first.

Personally I think this is a good episode, it is very funny and Tweetie Pie rules. I admire Sylvester in this episode in the way that he never surrenders, despite having his plans failed and being beaten with a broom by the woman that owns him. Both in cartoons and in real life, it takes guts and heart to not surrender so long.

In this particular episode of Tweety Pie and Sylvester, Sylvester - who is here called Thomas, finds a little yellow bird in the snow, who is Tweety Pie (duh). Thomas is about to eat him, until his woman owner sees the little bird and decides to keep him - and keep him safe from Thomas. Annoyingly, Sylvester has tricks up his fur to capture Tweety Pie and have a nice feathery snack...

I recommend this to anyone who likes Tweety Pie and Sylvester and who likes old slapstick jokes. Enjoy! :-)
