Has a creepy essence to it, but still enjoyable
16 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I personally do not mind the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, in fact in general I quite like them. I Taw a Putty Tat is not among their best, but I enjoyed it well enough. I did though find the part where you hear the voices of the digested mice on the creepy side, and the first time I saw this I found the end a bit of a shock and even now I am quite surprised at its longevity.

That said, the animation is excellent, being fluid and colourful and the music has some fine interludes to it. The dialogue is fun and the sight gags work a vast majority of the time with quite a lot fitted in in a short duration which has always impressed me admittedly. Tweety is funny with some great lines, but I feel Sylvester carries it. The supporting characters also add a lot without distracting too much from Sylvester and Tweety. Mel Blanc is superb as always.

All in all, enjoyable if not among the best. 8/10 Bethany Cox
