With the exception of Tweety's final line Ain't She Tweet is a sheer delight
17 August 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ain't She Tweet is a delightful cartoon and among the best of the Sylvester/Tweety series(which I do enjoy on the most part). Those who likes the series will find plenty to love, and Ain't She Tweet is also a Sylvester/Tweety cartoons that even non-Tweety fans will enjoy. The animation is bright and colourful with lots of fluid movement and you do have to love how Sylvester's facial expressions are animated. All the characters look fine though. The music with the lush and characterful orchestration and very driven rhythms is great and enhances the action wonderfully. The dialogue is nearly always witty and amusing but it's in the visual gags where the funniest stuff is, the entire stuff with the rocket and Sylvester-on-stilts are hilarious as is all the parts and interactions between Sylvester and the funny and very brutal bull-dogs. But I do completely agree about Sylvester making his way to the front door, thinking his plan working, and finding the bull-dogs inside. That is a masterclass in how to make something potentially predictable actually unexpected, okay you kind of know the outcome but the build-up and the execution of this scene, with some great suspense and some fun animation for Sylvester, ensures that the scene manages to surprise us. The story is crisply paced and is not repetitive, sure it is basically Sylvester thinking of ways to get to Tweety without getting attacked by bull-dogs but the ways he uses are actually very clever and don't repeat themselves. The characters are great, Tweety doesn't have much to do but he is not an annoyance and while not as anarchic as Bob Clampett made him he's not too cutesy. Granny has even less to do but she's hardly pointless. But the stars of the show are the bull-dogs and especially Sylvester. The dogs are funny and brutal, while Sylvester is one of those characters who provides the laughs brilliantly when the material is strong(like it is here) yet you do feel a fair amount of pity for him. Mel Blanc is spot-on as usual as well as remarkably consistent and Bea Benaderet is good despite having little. The only thing that isn't so good is Tweety's lame and unfunny final line, Ain't She Tweet on the whole though is delightful, not just for Sylvester and Tweety but generally as well. 9/10 Bethany Cox
