Storyline

Granny is Tweety Bird's mistress on a farm. She assigns a bulldog named Hector to take care of Tweety while she's away. Sylvester Cat disguises himself as a scarecrow to sneak up on Tweety. Tweety runs into a chicken coop and is protected by a mother hen and an aggressive rooster. Hector, seeing that Tweety is gone and fearing Granny's wrath, paints Sylvester yellow and puts him in Tweety's cage to fool Granny. Tweety returns and makes like a cat since turnabout is fair play.

One of the better Sylvester and Tweety cartoons
27 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I do like Sylvester and Tweety, and while there is the odd cartoon of theirs that doesn't completely work(ie. Catty Cornered) I do like their cartoons in general. While I prefer Hyde and Go Tweet, Red Riding Hoodwinked, Tweet and Sour and Tweety and the Beanstalk, I consider Fowl Weather one of their better cartoons. Perhaps it could have been a minute or so longer so that there was a little more interaction between Hector and Sylvester, but I really enjoyed everything I saw. The animation is of fluid and lively quality, and the music by Carl Stalling is typically energetic. The cartoon goes at a brisk pace, while the fun dialogue and hilarious sight gags, the best being Sylvester disguising himself as a scarecrow to catch Tweety and it backfires and the Foghorn Leghorn-lookalike rooster courting Sylvester disguised as a chicken, make the story even more entertaining than it is. Tweety is quite good especially at the end, but Sylvester is the character that makes the cartoon, while Hector also has some great moments particularly the envisioning of his execution and Granny is seen as both dotty and tough. Mel Blanc's voices are superb as usual. Overall, great fun and one of the better ones of this set of cartoons. 9/10 Bethany Cox
