Storyline

Sylvester Cat and Tweety Bird are snowbound in a mountain cabin, and though Tweety has lots of bird seed, Sylvester will starve unless he can cook the unsuspecting Tweety. Meanwhile, a starving mouse thinks Sylvester is edible and keeps springing on the cat, chewing the fur off his head and tail and trying to cook his various body parts. Granny returns just in time with groceries, to find she mistakenly brought back only more bird seed! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

This Mouse Was A Real Rat
19 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I actually felt sorry for poor Sylvester as a mouse, not Tweety, comes out of his hole and torments the poor cat throughout much of this Looney Tunes cartoon. Sylvester is eaten, burned and pounded from head to toe by a sadistic and hungry mouse.

It all begins when Granny gets the word that a blizzard has knocked out the roads to her cabin on top of the mountain. "Oh, flibbertigibbit," says Granny. "My bird and cat will starve up there. I'll have to find a way." (Is fibbertigibbit a word?)

It's calm up at the cabin, however, and - shocking as it may sound - Sylvester and Tweety are lounging together at the fireplace. Sylvester even kisses Tweety! However, the cat hears on the radio that "all roads might be closed for up to six weeks," he panics, says "I'll starve," and starts looking around for food, but all there is available is bird seed. From there, it goes from bad to worse for your always-unlucky cat. At least Tweety gets off the hook, as this mouse comes out of a hole and terrorizes poor Sylvester.

This was entertaining but I didn't find it that humorous. The brutal mouse made the story almost sadistic in nature.
