Storyline

In this spoof of Alcoholics Anonymous, pussy cats are cast as bird-eating addicts and go through the 12-step process to deal with their addiction. Sylvester, who could never quite get the best of the object of his desire, Tweety Bird, joins and resolves to quit chasing and eating the canary. Tweety innocently asks the puddy "Don't you wike me anymo'?" setting off a series of events which will test the puddy tat's resolve. Several attempts to get his mind off eating Tweety backfire, leading him to a delirious attempt to eat the bird. Sam (Sylvester's B.A. sponsor, introduced earlier) intervenes and shows how birds and cats can peacefully co-exist, but he falls off the wagon when he kisses Tweety and thus getting a taste of him and wanting a lot more!

An Oscar winner and one of the best Sylvester and Tweety cartoons

This is a delightful cartoon and one of the most effective and entertaining Sylvester and Tweety cartoons Warner Brothers did. The B. A. meeting is inspired parody and Sylvester's attempts to kick the "bird habit" are exceptionally funny. Tweety's closing line is the perfect capper to a wonderful ending. Won a well-earned Oscar. Shows frequently on Cartoon Network. Highly recommended.
