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!

Oscar-winning Sylvester and Tweety short where Sylvester tries to kick his Tweety addiction by attending Birds Anonymous meetings. As you might have figured out, Birds Anonymous is a Looney Tunes parody of Alcoholics Anonymous. In this group cats get together and try to overcome their addiction to birds. They hold their meetings in an alley and, well, if that doesn't sell you then I'm afraid your funny bone might be broken. Terrific voice work from the legendary Mel Blanc. The animation is very nice. It's done in that somewhat sketchy style that was becoming popular in the mid-to-late '50s. I'm not often a fan of it but this is one of the better examples of that style. Whimsical, lively music from Milt Franklyn. It's a funny and smart cartoon that I think most Looney Tunes fans will love. As another reviewer mentioned, it's possibly Sylvester and Tweety's best and very deserving of the Oscar for animated short that year.
