Tweety's SOS (1951)

*** (out of 4)

Sylvester is out looking for dinner when he spots Tweety on a ship. The rest of the cartoon as the cat trying to work his way around Granny so that he can eat the little bird. I'm sure I'm not alone but I find Tweety to be cute but incredibly annoying. I watch all of these shorts just hoping Sylvester will eat him even though I know it's not going to happen. The actual chase is what makes this worth viewing as it remains fun seeing the poor cat try and try again no matter how many times he fails. There are some pretty good jokes in this short with the best being the sea sickness stuff. Sylvester turning green leads to some great jokes including the one at the end.
