Storyline

The title of this cartoon is a misnomer, because it is in fact Tweety Bird who is the homeless one here, and Sylvester is Granny's pet. Tweety seeks shelter from a blizzard and taps on Granny's house door. Sylvester answers and grabs the canary. He tries to hide Tweety from Granny while evading the attacks of Hector, Granny's bed-ridden bulldog, who wants revenge on Sylvester for his broken leg. Tweety keeps escaping Sylvester's clutches, with Hector's help. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"I did! I did taw a tweety bird!"
30 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Tweety, apparently homeless in this one, takes refuge from a winter storm inside Granny's house. Unfortunately for him, Sylvester also lives there and wastes no time nabbing the bird and trying to hide him so Granny doesn't see. Enjoyable short directed by Friz Freleng. Tweety is as cute and fun as ever. Not everybody cares for him but I find him adorable. Sylvester's very funny in this one, especially when he's torturing poor injured Hector the bulldog so Granny will focus on nursing him instead of paying attention to what Sylvester is doing with Tweety. Great voice work from Bea Benaderet and the incomparable Mel Blanc. Lively music from Carl Stalling. The animation is lovely with well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Rich Technicolor is always a plus. A solid Sylvester & Tweety cartoon. Not their best but fun.
