Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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

Quotes

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!

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
