Storyline

Hungry alley cat Sylvester spots Tweety in his nest, which sits on a tree high atop a dog pound where numerous bulldogs reside. Among the best gags in this cartoon (and there's lots of them): Sylvester walks a light wire like a tightrope walker, only to have a collective doggy-breath blow him off; Sylvester using a swing to gain access to the tree, only to have the dogs join; the cat using hypnotism to stop the dogs dead in their tracks (Tweety tricks Sylvester into revealing the secret); Sylvester disguising himself as a dog; the dogs burrowing under the pound, having accurately anticipated that Sylvester will do the same; and the dogs waiting in the tree branches waiting for Sylvester to climb the tree. The best gag, however, is saved for last Sylvester paints a white stripe down his back to make the dogs think he's a skunk. That trick works too well, as it also attracts Pepe Le Pew, who desires to make love with the lisping puddy tat. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Sylvester, Tweety up a tree, surrounded by a do pound full of bulldogs-it isn't pretty for Sylvester!
25 October 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a series of set pieces called blackouts, all revolving on Sylvester's increasingly outlandish, generally painfully futile, attempts to get to a supremely well-guarded Tweety. I doubt Fort Knox is much safer than Tweety is from Sylvester in this one. Animals in cartoons are certainly an inventive and quite resourceful lot! Mostly sight gags with a couple of funny lines. The closing gag snatches defeat from the jaws of victory with a cameo from a prominent member of the principal stable of characters who is definitely more than Sylvester can handle. The final line from Tweety is a groaner, but this is a wonderful short. Well worth watching. Most recommended
