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>

"Fi Fi Fo Fat, I taught I taw a puddy tat"
14 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Personally I like the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, though if I were honest I prefer those of Bugs and Daffy. Tweety and the Beanstalk is for me one of their better cartoons, along with Hyde and Go Tweet. It is basically a fun little twist on the timeless Jack and the Beanstalk tale, with a size reversal between Sylvester and Tweety. The animation is crisp and colourful, while the music is bright and lively. Both Tweety and the Giant have some great dialogue, my favourite was the one in the title of this review, while some of the cartoon revolves around Sylvester's ingenious(or not so ingenious) traps to capture Tweety. Tweety is good here, while Sylvester and the Giant are even better, and Mel Blanc is excellent once again. Overall, simply great. 10/10 Bethany Cox
