Canary Row (1950)

*** (out of 4)

Tweety Bird is safely in his cage when Sylvester decides to try and kidnap him for dinner. Sylvester seems to have the upper hand until Granny comes to the rescue. This here isn't the best Tweety/Sylvester short out there but the real star is Granny who clearly steals the film. The feisty old lady still knows how to throw a few punches and her protection of Tweety is the main reason to see this film. Believe it or not this series was never one of my favorites but this one here is an enjoyable seven-minutes with some nice laughs and good action.
