Storyline

The chase continues between Tweety Bird and that persistant puddy tat, Sylvester. Tweety hides in a millinery store (where Granny happens to be shopping) and hides on a hat. After a store clerk shoos Sylvester outside, she shows Granny a hat with what is thought to be a stuffed bird. Granny buys the hat and wears it immediately. Sylvester spots the hat and immediately begins his pursuit. Among the best gags: Sylvester hiding in a man's hat, and Granny clobbering the man (and puddy) after he makes a fresh remark; Sylvester's tail growing in great length after getting it caught in the elevator door at a department store; and the cat using a bellows to blow Granny's hat into the street, then going after the hat (with the ulterior motive of grabbing his dinner). In the end, Sylvester finally grabs Tweety as he and Granny are riding in a taxi, but the puddy tat getting clobbered when the car enters a low-clearance tunnel.

"Not tonight, Josephine."
11 August 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Middling Sylvester & Tweety short directed by Friz Freleng. This one has Tweety pretending to be a stuffed bird on top of a hat so Granny will buy the hat (what a sense of style she has) and thus keep Tweety safe from Sylvester. It's a pretty dumb idea but, by this point, I think they were willing to try anything. The bulk of the cartoon is Sylvester trying to get at Tweety resting on Granny's head. No standout gags, really. A few funny lines from Granny. The animation is OK; I like the colors most. Great voice work from Mel Blanc, June Foray, and Daws Butler. The worst part of the cartoon is the dreadful stock music they had to use because of the musicians' strike at the time. It doesn't seem like Looney Tunes at all.
