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>

OK, but not their best pairing
7 March 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As far as I'm concerned, any Sylvester-Tweety pairing is a good one. So, I still like "Tweety and the Beanstalk", even though it's far from the best Sylvester-Tweety pairing. It portrays Jack's mother throwing the beans under Sylvester's box, after which a beanstalk grows under it and takes Sylvester up to the giant's kingdom; this was I assume the only time that Tweety was twice Sylvester's size.

If this cartoon has any real weakness, it's that we don't get to see any of Tweety's usual nasty tricks to fend off Sylvester. Then again, since Tweety is bigger than Sylvester here, they didn't really need to do that. "TATB" actually gets really neat once we meet the giant. But Sylvester and Tweety's best pairing in 1957 was "Birds Anonymous", and the best Looney Tunes spin on "Jack and the Beanstalk" was "Beanstalk Bunny", in which Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck climb the beanstalk up to a land where Elmer Fudd is the giant.
