"Oooh that putty tat -- he mad at me!"
28 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty simple Sylvester & Tweety short. The duo plus a bulldog are all on a train together in the baggage car. Sylvester tries to eat Tweety repeatedly and is stopped by the conductor and the bulldog. It's a formulaic cartoon but a fun one. A lot of people don't care for this series of shorts but I find myself enjoying every one that I see. Mel Blanc is terrific, as usual. Beautiful, colorful animation. Love all the train stuff. Carl Stalling's music is great. Tweety is adorable and funny. He sings his "I'm a tweet wittle bird in a diwlded tage" song. I believe the bulldog is Hector but he isn't named here. He looks like Hector, though. It's always fun to watch Sylvester get knocked around and there's plenty of those gags in this short. Like I said, you either like Tweety & Sylvester cartoons or you don't. If you do, you'll surely like this one.
