Very entertaining Sylvester & Tweety short. The story has Sylvester once again trying to catch Tweety but this time he dies in the attempt. He goes to Hell, where he discovers Satan is a bulldog. Sylvester has to wait as each of his remaining eight lives (cats have nine, remember) show up in Hell. Back on Earth, Sylvester wakes up and continues his pursuit of Tweety, leading to many more deaths until he has one life left. What happens next is pretty funny. This is one of my favorite Sylvester shorts. It's inventive and clever with wonderful music and beautiful, crisp animation. Love the opening with Sylvester chasing Tweety along the power lines. All of the Hell stuff is colorful and creative. Mel Blanc is terrific as usual.
