When Granny is relaxing on the gondola and says, "This is so cacciatore" she obviously don't know what she's saying. "Cacciatore" is the Italian word for "hunter" (what she says may be a reference to chicken cacciatore, which means chicken prepared hunter-style, i.e. like a field-cooked meal with local herbs and vegetables).

"Little feathered paisano makes a delicious sand-a-which!"
Minor Sylvester & Tweety short from Friz Freleng. Granny and Tweety are vacationing in Venice, Italy, where evidently Sylvester lives (he has an Italian accent and everything). Once Sylvester spots the little bird across the canal, he tries everything he can to reach him. Did you know there are sharks in the canals of Venice? I didn't. This cartoon taught me something new! Lovely animation with some beautiful colors and detailed backgrounds. Nice Italian-flavored music from Milt Franklyn. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and June Foray. An amusing cartoon with some funny and adorable lines for Tweety. The Sylvester-with-an-accent joke is only a little funny. It's enjoyable but more cute than anything else.
