Storyline

Sylvester Cat joins a tour group through the City Zoo and finds Tweety Bird among the exhibits. Sylvester chases Tweety and ends up in a bear's den, a tiger-feeder's meat store, and a lion's cage. He tries to pole vault to reach Tweety in the middle of an alligator pond, only to slip into teeth-range of the beasts. Sylvester leaves the zoo, vowing to strike birds off his list, just before a cluster of birds land on his shoulders and head. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Pretty enjoyable thanks to Sylvester and the material
27 February 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sylvester is part of a guided tour of the zoo until his tour guide points out the cage holding the one and only Tweety Bird in existence. As his group moves on, Sylvester decides it's time to eat and tries to catch the bird. However, Tweety escapes into the rest of the zoo, making it hard for Sylvester to get him without the other animals getting in the way.

Although Tweety Pie cartoons can often be quite weak due to the fact that Tweety is not really a good character - just a thing to be hunted. Here however the film covers that inherent weakness with good material and plenty of nice sequences. The plot is basically a chance for Sylvester to get messed up by various wild animals and, as such, it works! The various alligators, bears, lions and so on all give him what for and most of the sequences are very funny.

Tweety has very little to really do, other than be near an animal for Sylvester to annoy. Sylvester however, does exceptionally well in the lead role and he carries the majority of the laughs and sequences. The various zoo animals have enough character to be more than just animation - the lion and bear are the strongest!

Overall this is a very funny Tweety Pie cartoon - probably better than his usual fare. The material is good and consistently funny and Sylvester does well in the lead role to make the most of his sequences, while Tweety just hangs around.
