All a bor-e-e-d
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sylvester cat, Tweety bird, and a bulldog are all on a train. Obviosly Sylvester wants to eat Tweety, but is hampered greatly by the vicious dog, and to a very lesser degree the conductor. This cartoon was not good nor bad it was simply there. It didn't help my theory I formed while watching the previous short on disc 3 "Bad Ol' Putty Tat", because the bird's presence was incidental at best, and it just seemed to me to be a Sylvester versus some random dog cartoon. Basically consisting of said dog beating the snot out of the cat. This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2.

My Grade: C
