Storyline

The chase between Sylvester and Tweety continues into a busy city street, where the puddy tat himself gets chased by Hector the bulldog. All three are injured by passing cars and taken to the city hospital, where Nurse Granny tends to the threesome. Innocent Tweety is the only one who tries to get rest, but Sylvester and Hector are always at odds, kitty trying to get at the bird and doggy harassing the lisping alley cat. Sylvester tries several methods to do away with the dog, all of which fail. At one point, Sylvester does swallow Tweety, but Nurse Granny takes the cat into puddy surgery (which results in a large bandage placed over his chest). In the end, Sylvester, Tweety and Hector are released from the hospital, but the chase quickly starts again and the three wandering into traffic. "Que sera sera," sighs Granny.

"Bad ol' puddy tat!"
24 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Fun Sylvester & Tweety short from director Friz Freleng. Sylvester's chasing Tweety while Hector the bulldog chases Sylvester and all three wind up running into traffic. They're sent to the hospital where Granny is their nurse. Being injured doesn't stop Sylvester and Hector from trying to inflict pain upon one another, though. My favorite scene is when a doped-up Sylvester is losing consciousness but keeps trying to force his eyes to stay open. Every time he opens them Hector is getting one step closer until the inevitable 'pow.' Great animation in this one with lovely colors and well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lively music and wonderful voice work from the incomparable Mel Blanc and June Foray. Not one of the best Sylvester & Tweety shorts but a very enjoyable one with lots of laughs.
