Did You Know?


The title is a parody of the classic announcement made by the train conductor just before the train starts to pull out of the station: All aboard!!! See more »


It seems a bit pointless Tweety being kept in a cage that he can leave to pull the emergency stop cord etc. See more »


Conductor: [after he smacks Sylvester's hand when he tries to catch Tweety] Oh no, you don't! It's a good thing I kept my eye on you, you sneakin' feline. And as for you, little birdie, I'd better put you in a safer place.
[he hangs Tweety's cage on a celing hook]
Conductor: There ya are. That oughta do it.
[to Sylvester again]
Conductor: Now remember, cat... no tricks!

Great Visuals Plus A Funny Story
14 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tweety is sent in his cage on a train by his old-lady owner. In the same baggage car, also in a cage, is Sylvester.

In no time, Sylvester has grabbed Tweety but a trainman comes back and slaps the "sneakin' feline," as he calls him, back in his cage. He puts Tweety "in a safer place," up high and tells the cat, "Now, remember: no tricks!" Sylvester puts his halo on and looks innocent. Yeah, right.

I found the funniest stuff, however, didn't involve Sylvester versus Tweety but the "viscious dog" that is in another cage next to Sylvester. The cat gets mouthy with him, and pays a big price in an extremely funny manner. Sylvester just doesn't learn, but that's one reason we love him! (I know a number of IMDb reviewers don't like Tweety but I like both main characters - they both crack me up!)

Also, the train, and the passing scenery, is beautifully illustrated in here - really nice visuals.
