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 »

Sylvester: Six weeks? I'll starve!

Sylvester: Bird seed...?
Sylvester: [opens the cupboard, which has the same contents as the fridge] Seed?

[Sylvester runs excitedly to the pantry, only to discover that it is also stuffed with bird seed]
Tweety: We don't have to worry, putty. ...

Sylvester Cat and Tweety Bird are trapped in a snowstorm in Granny's mountain cabin. Tweety doesn't need to worry food-wise as there's plenty of bird seed around, but Sylvester has only the bird to think about eating. There's also a mouse who gets into the act. Only 2 Tweety shorts to go on this DVD, these are quite the chore as my loathing of that damned speech impediment having bird is by now well known. I find it hard to be fair-minded with a character I actively detest and fear my reviews for the Tweety cartoons are suffering because of it & am so very glad that the next short is the last one I'll have to review, until Volume 3 of the Golden Collection at least. This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2.

My Grade: D+
