Sylvester Cat spots Tweety Bird in a display window of an after-hours department store and sneaks inside through a mail server chute. Tweety flees Sylvester by hiding in a hat pile and a doll house, evades the shots from a rifle Sylvester uses, and escapes in a vacuum tube. Tweety sends a dynamite stick through another tube, and Sylvester swallows it, thinking it is Tweety. The dynamite blows up inside Sylvester after the cat leaves the store and walks down the street.

The title is a parody of the 1900 song "A Bird in a Gilded Cage" composed by Arthur J. Lamb (lyrics) and Harry Von Tilzer (music) which became one of the most popular songs of the early 20th century, and frequently sung by Tweety Bird in other shorts. See more »

I almost always laugh when a cartoon character turns to us, the audience, and makes a remark. Early in this animated short, Sylvester, turns and whispers to us, "How naive can you get?" That's after Tweety is asking him what he wants as the cat reaches into the cage, trying to steal him from the front window at "Stacy's" Department Store.
Also funny, and usually taken for granted by us viewers, is the music. I liked the violin strings being plucked each time Sylvester would tiptoe around that department store front window and then in the main store as he stalked Tweety (who had flown away just before being eaten as a sandwich).
There are the normal amount of great sight gags in here, such as Sylvester making a ladder out of mannequins and then becoming part of the mannequin, or the goofy cat trying on women's hats or the chase through the doll house.
This is very entertaining all the way with great gags and great music.
