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>

Sylvester and Tweety go to the zoo
21 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although there are a number of people who don't care for the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, Tweet Zoo is one of the ones in the series that even non-fans of the series may find enjoyment in. Tweety has very little to do other than being a plot device and what he has is not all that funny and actually pretty forgettable.

Sylvester however is enormous fun to watch, he has the lion's share of the humour and takes it all exceptionally well(even his facial expressions and gestures are worth a laugh on their own). I've always much preferred him over Tweety, he's always interesting and he is always the funnier character meaning he's also easier to root for. And he is certainly easy to root for in Tweet Zoo. He gets strong support from the animals who provide great amusement and have equally colourful personalities, of note in particular are the lion and the bear. The animation is bouncy and colourful, everything looks smooth and the colours are warm and not limited at all. Milt Franklyn's music has always been consistently good(prefer Carl Stalling just a tad though) and with the vibrant orchestration and lively rhythms Tweet Zoo does not disappoint.

The story structurally is not the most exceptional and may seem formulaic in hindsight but the energy of the cartoon and how the gags and material are executed compensate so much that it's not noticeable. The gags range from the very amusing to the hilarious, while the bear and the lion are the most colourful support characters and their scenes are a lot of fun it was the alligator gag was especially clever in this instance. Got a good laugh at the ending as well. The dialogue brings a smile to one's face and Mel Blanc's voice work is stellar as always. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
