Very funny - like a tougher version of Tweety Pie!
1 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When his young son selects `bird stalking' as his cat merit badge, Sylvester goes with him to help catch a bird in the mountains. He convinces him that they should catch a small, helpless bird rather than a massive eagle because they make a more challenging prey. However Sylvester accidentally picks a `Dwarf Eagle' and gets more than he bargained for.

I'm not a big lover of Tweety Pie cartoons but I did enjoy this film. Yes, I know that Tweety is not in this one, but the idea of Sylvester having problems catching a small bird must surely bear some comparison. The joke here is that the Dwarf Eagle is actually just a big bird in a small body - more than a match for any cats! The jokes are funny, but even funnier is the shame with which Sylvester's son reacts to each beating with!

He is a good character and I really liked him in this cartoon. I'm sure he is only a one trick pony, but he does his one trick well and compliments each joke - his final moment of shame is a good ending. Sylvester is good as well - he is less dastardly but is funny in word and action. The eagle lacks character but it is not a problem.

Overall good characters and good jokes make for a very enjoyable cartoon that has a mix of humour styles.
