bad ol' putty tat, badminton, but a good bird
3 March 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

It seems like within just a few short years of debuting Sylvester, the Termite Terrace crowd had given him the works (Tweety actually debuted before Sylvester). In this case, Sylvester tries to go after Tweety yet again, but Tweety somehow has all the conveniences necessary - such as mallets and dynamite - to fend off a putty tat attack. Of course, things really get cool once they start playing badminton.

What you have to realize about Tweety is that he was not really what we think of as "cute". He was actually a mean mother. If anything, we should pity Sylvester. But no matter, "Bad Ol' Putty Tat" is another one of the cartoon greats.
