Storyline

Sylvester Cat pays a visit to a closed-to-business circus and finds Tweety Bird in one of the cages. All that changes when Tweety escapes his cage and flees Sylvester... and thus, the chase begins. Meanwhile, Sylvester must flee from an uncaged lion he had angered with his earlier remarks. The chase results in Sylvester being pounded by an elephant, falling into an empty water tank, swallowing fire, and losing his balance on the high wire and falling into the lion's mouth. Sylvester locks himself in a cage thinking he is safe from the lion, only to find he has locked himself in with 50 more! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Absolutely definitive Sylvester!
30 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another of the benchmark Sylvester films, one that really makes the viewer zero in on the character's persona as a movie star. Sylvester's so full of himself in this one--he wears his feline pride on his sleeve, and thinks nothing of being a knave in front of the king of beasts. He's not a villain, just a lovable boor. All the better to set him up as the lion's target. Director Freleng employs great rapid-fire camera pans when the lion seizes Sylvester's whip and chair and lashes him back and forth in the big cat's cage. Noteworthy, too, is the fact this is virtually one big, long, continual chase with (when I last counted) only ONE fade, when Sylvester's made pancake-flat by the elephant. But the tension never really lets up, fortunately. And LOOOOOVE that "Meow" song at the beginning!
