A Tweety cartoon sans Tweety makes for one of the better shorts in the series
1 October 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Friz Freleng's 'Ain't She Tweet' is a very good Sylvester and Tweety cartoon. I'm not usually a fan of this series of cartoons because of its repetitive nature and my hatred of Freleng's cutesy version of Tweety. 'Ain't She Tweet' comes at the cat-and-bird battle from a different angle by placing constant obstacles between Sylvester and Tweety, first a pet shop window then a garden full of bulldogs. Not only does this provide some much needed variety to the series but it also effectively removes Tweety from the action at a very early stage! Once Tweety disappears for an extended period, 'Ain't She Tweet' really comes to life, closing the gap between each of Sylvester's attempts to get across the garden and his inevitable savaging. Crucially, there are some genuinely unexpected moments which is rare in the bulk of Sylvester and Tweety cartoons. My favourite is a beautifully directed moment in which Sylvester finds the garden empty and victoriously makes his way carefully to the front door only to find the dozens of vicious dogs inside the house. We know there's a savaging coming but Freleng still somehow manages to draw out some genuine suspense alongside the laughs. As a big fan of Sylvester without Tweety, 'Ain't She Tweet' offers plenty to enjoy. When Tweety does finally reappear at the cartoons end, his final bit to camera is the low point of the cartoon and an unfortunate way to end a genuinely funny short. 'Ain't She Tweet' is one of the best Sylvester and Tweety cartoons for one simple reason: it's virtually a Sylvester solo outing.
