Storyline

Jack's mother throws Jack's magic beans outside under Sylvester Cat's sleeping box, and the cat is whisked to the world above, where he finds a huge Tweety Bird in the castle of the legendary Giant. When he tries to snag Tweety, Sylvester is chased by the Giant down the beanstalk. Sylvester chops down the stalk while the giant is still descending. The Giant falls on top of Sylvester with such force that Sylvester is shot through the Earth to the Orient. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

The 'Itty-Bitty Pussycat' - Very Clever Stuff
8 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe I am in the minority here, but I thought this Tweety-Sylvester cartoon was terrific. It was very inventive and reminded of a good Roadrunner cartoon. Here, Sylvester uses his wits to come up with some really good plans to get Tweety but - like the coyote who never could get the Roadrunner - always comes up short.

That's the angle of the story, too: "short." Sylvester climbs Jack's giant beanstalk and winds up somewhere way up in the clouds in a magic kingdom and more specifically, in a huge castle where everything is gigantic compared to him. Tweety is there and it is he who incorporates some of the words in the subject head here when he says, "I tawt I saw a little itty, bitty puddytat!" The rest of the cartoon is Sylvester coming up with ingenious plans to get the giant (to him) bird and then, at the end, battling the human "Giant."

Good stuff and very clever material.
