"Kiss the little birdie."
25 December 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It's Christmas at Granny's house and everything is kind of crazy. Sylvester is trying to eat Tweety, Hector the bulldog is trying to eat Sylvester, and Granny is trying to keep the peace. One of the best Sylvester & Tweety shorts, brought to us by Friz Freleng. The animation is beautiful with really lush colors. The music is lively and fun. The always great voicework from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet is a treat. Wonderful characters alternate between being adorable and being hilarious. It's such a good cartoon. Plus it's Christmas-themed so it has that added bonus and even ends with everybody singing a Christmas carol (badly).
