A good Tweety short
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not the biggest Tweety fan, but this one was pretty good. It had a funny humorous moments (seeing that damn speech impediment having bird getting the feathers blown off him as a badminton ball really made my day) And it's always good to watch Slyvester (before he got saddled with a little tyke) Seeing this and liking it made me realize that maybe my dislike of Tweety was misplaced. Maybe I just really couldn't stand the Granny character. I'll have to look more into this new spin on it, but it would change all my understands of my Tweety watching childhood. This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2.

My Grade: B
