Trivia

Sylvester is briefly drawn with his older character design at the beginning. This is because the footage was re-used from Life with Feathers (1945). See more »

Goofs

When Sylvester goes to the nurse's station to get seasick remedy for the 2nd time, Tweety pours nitroglycerin into the bottle before Sylvester enters. Sylvester then picks up the bottle and starts drinking out of it. The next shot shows Tweety on a shelf with the same bottle underneath him. Then in the next shot, the bottle is back in Sylvester's hand. See more »

"You bad ol' peepin' tom tat!"
6 September 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Wonderful Sylvester and Tweety short directed by Friz Freleng. This one's pretty much a textbook example of the series and would probably serve well as a great introduction to these characters for anyone who hasn't seen them before. The plot is simple - Sylvester is starving so he tries to get at Tweety on a cruise ship, only to be repeatedly (and painfully) thwarted by Granny. The animation is very nice with great colors. There are many fun gags and lines with the funniest bit for me being Sylvester's seasickness. Solid voice work from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet. Really a great cartoon all around. The ending is a hoot, too.
