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 ceiling hook]
Conductor: There ya are. That oughta do it.

One of the better Sylvester and Tweety pairings
1 October 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Friz Freleng's 'All Abir-r-r-d' is one of the best Sylvester and Tweety cartoons. Unlike the many repetitive cartoons in the series which simply transplant the same tired gags to a new setting, 'All Abir-r-r-d' makes the most of its concept. Tweety and Sylvester are domestic pets who are being sent unattended across country by train. With both a watchful official and a vicious bulldog to deal with, Sylvester has his work cut out. The Sylvester and Tweety cartoons always benefited from some extra participants and 'All Abir-r-r-d' is a good example of how much these additional characters help. Although they are not especially memorable creations, they throw some more obstacles in Sylvester's path and make for a more interesting battle. This early Sylvester and Tweety short presses many of the right buttons and, while Tweety is often particularly irritating with his forced cuteness, there's some deliciously violent antics between Sylvester and the dog, culminating in a surprisingly brutal climax which is unfortunately marred by a final unfunny non-quip by Tweety.
