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>

"Now dat puddy tat thinks he Buck Wodgers."
28 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A starving Sylvester is desperate to get at Tweety in his nest atop a tree. The problem is the tree is in the middle of the city dog pound, which is currently packed full of vicious bulldogs. So Sylvester must channel his inner Wile E. Coyote and come up with various wacky ways to get past the sea of dogs that stand between him and dinner.

A hilarious short directed by Friz Freleng. Only Tweety is mentioned in the title card, which I found odd, especially since Sylvester is really the star of this with Tweety only popping up every so often to make a corny wisecrack. Excellent voice work from Mel Blanc. Fun, lively music. Crisp, colorful animation. Some wonderful gags in this one, including the dog catcher bit which will have you feeling so bad for poor Sylvester. Really I felt for him throughout this short and, since Tweety was being such a jerk here, I wouldn't have minded Sylvester winning this time. It's a great short with lots of laughs and a wonderful cameo at the end from Pepé Le Pew.
