Pretty funny short with a good Tweety
25 December 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sylvester is hanging around the dock trying to scavenge for food from the bins when he spots Tweety Pie in a cabin on a cruise ship. Sylvester boards the ship to try and catch himself some breakfast but finds getting the bird isn't as easy as he hoped - especially with granny on the case.

Most Tweety Pie cartoons leave me sort of unsure of why they were so big. Tweety himself is always a bit bland and Sylvester quite often just ends up outwitting himself and Tweety just observes at times. Here however Tweety is actually pretty active in terms of moving and running around. The action is all pretty funny and flows well with Tweety having some good actions and delivering gags as opposed to the usual observing.

Sylvester is funny and he does give himself more trouble than he gets from Tweety. Tweety does have a better presence here than he often does, but Granny is a little bit poorly animated but has a better presence as well.

Overall this is a fun cartoon with gags that go beyond just purely physical laughs and has some witty little bits. For once both Tweety and Sylvester are both good characters to the degree that even Granny has a bigger part than normal!
