Usual gags done on the beach - funny, 8 November 2003
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

When his owner goes to the beach, Tweety Pie goes along in his cage. Meanwhile, on the pier, Sylvester is having no luck fishing for his dinner. When he spots Tweety he thinks he is in for a free lunch. But when the tide comes in, cutting him off from Tweety's cage, he has to devise some way of staying dry and getting to his quarry.

It is a testimony to the imagination of the creators of many of the WB cartoons that they basically repeat the tried and tested formula and gags over and over but still (mostly) manage to make them funny and avoid being overly repetitive. That is the case here – basically if you like the Tweety Pie cartoons then you'll like this. The gags are all slapstick and are nothing new, but the setting of the beach is used well to make it feel a bit new.

Happily Tweety has only limited screentime and the focus of the cartoon is on Sylvester's efforts to get his bird. This works for me as I always found Tweety to be annoying yet the dastardly Sylvester is a good character who is funny and tragic in a way that only Wily E. Coyote can compete with!

Overall this is nothing frighteningly new but it does use it's location well to alter the old gags and make them feel a little different and still pretty funny. Not a fan of the series but I did enjoy this one.
