tsunamis coming for you, 17 August 2007
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

OK, so we should know by now that in cartoons, predators expend every last bit of energy in their efforts to get their prey but always fail miserably (think Wile E. Coyote going after Road Runner). In "Sandy Claws", Granny and Tweety go to the beach where Sylvester is having an unlucky time fishing. Sure enough, he sees Tweety and decides to eat him, but every effort results in the sorts of things that befall Wile E. Coyote when the latter goes after Road Runner.

There was, however, one thing that really didn't make sense here. Throughout the cartoon, tsunamis keep swamping the beach. Now, these tsunamis easily dwarf the one that struck the Indian Ocean in 2004. But while Sylvester always gets soaked no matter how high he climbs, Tweety never gets a drop of water on himself. WTF?! Of course, this is a cartoon, so nothing has to make sense. As long as they entertain us, they're doing their job, and this one certainly made me laugh. They keep the focus on Sylvester so that we can see his plans fail miserably (Tweety, in my opinion, was best in his early days: despite his "cute" appearance, he was the cruelest bird whom I've ever seen). Really funny. You can watch it in another language or turn the sound off altogether and still find it hilarious.
