Fast-Moving, Fun Tweety/Sylvester Short
14 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tweety's outside slumbering away in his nest in a birdhouse atop a long barbed-wire pole with a "do not disturb" sign outside his hole. Sylvester, (who else?) is below figuring a way to get up there. He's already covered in bandages, obviously coming out the worst for wear in a previous attempt.

His first attempt is a trampoline, to bounce high enough and snatch the bird, but Tweety is ready for him with a variety of funny attacks of his own. Then, after sawing the pole down only results in the poor cat losing all his teeth, Sylvester comes up with an inventive idea, painting his finger to look like a little bird. He inserts the finger, complete with bonnet to draw Tweety's romantic interests, into a nest and.......well, you have to see this to believe it. It gets even more insane with Tweety becoming part of a badminton match, Sylvester winding up in a water cooler, and more.

Overall, a very funny , fast-moving "Tweety" cartoon.
