speak of the Devil..., 29 October 2008
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

This time, we get to see what presumably befalls Sylvester every time that he fails to catch Tweety. After the slobbery cat plummets to his death and his ghost goes to Hell, the Devil (in the form of a bulldog) encourages the rest of his now eight lives to continue chasing Tweety. Guess what happens each time!

"Satan's Waiting'" was certainly a much grimmer version of this series than I've usually seen (the perfect one for Halloween). I wonder whether or not religious fundamentalists lashed out at this cartoon for making light of the Devil. Then again, religious fundamentalists probably don't watch the Looney Tunes to begin with. The end reminded me a little bit of the "Twilight Zone" episode about the bookworm who gets all the necessary to read...with a twist.

Worth seeing.
