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>

Trivia

Mel Blanc, speaking as Tweety Bird, didn't say his most popular phrase: "I tawt I taw a putty-tat!", in six cartoons (at-least). In order, they are 01: Snow Business (1953), 02: Heir-Conditioned (1955), (Tweety was in just a 5 to 10 second cameo, as it appears, Tweety was going to be another cat's "dinner to be", he just a one sentence quote). 03: Red Riding Hoodwinked (1955), 04: Tweet and Lovely (1959), 05: The Last Hungry Cat (1961) & 06: The Jet Cage (1962). In the fourth cartoon, "Tweet & Lovely", Tweety called Sylvester, "a peeping Tom cat". See more »

"The Shining" as a cartoon (note: this is a very loose interpretation)
29 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's true: I derived in "Snow Business" a connection to "The Shining". Obviously, you have the snowbound individuals (Sylvester and Tweety = the Torrance family), while someone else tries to return to the snowbound place (Granny = the cook). But aside from Sylvester starting to get cabin fever and view Tweety as a possible meal, there's the other presence in the snowbound location (the mouse = the ghosts) eating at the character going crazy - and I mean literally in this case.

I understand that my interpretation is probably one of the more outlandish interpretations of this cartoon, as the cartoon was probably intended as pure entertainment. I just like to look for similarities between different kinds of movies, cartoons, etc.

All in all, worth seeing.
