Complete credited cast:
Sylvester / Tweety / Dr. Milt Towne / Dog / Junior (voice)


Warners' "economy cartoon," repackaging footage from earlier Tweety and Sylvester chases with new footage. In this one, Sylvester tells a psychiatrist of his frustration at not being able to catch Tweety, his repeated failures illustrated through past cartoons featuring the canary and puddy tat. Apparently, Sylvester's sob story puts the doctor to sleep, and upon the doctor's waking up, realizes he's got to fly (literally, by flapping his arms) to Detroit. Sylvester jumps out the window to fly after the psychiatrist. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

"I think it all began when I was just a little shaver..."
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Sylvester has a nervous breakdown over his repeated failures to catch Tweety. So he goes to see a psychiatrist who specializes in animals. This provides for a lot of clips from previous cartoons to be used as flashbacks to show Sylvester's failures. Avid fans might be put off by this 'clip show.' But the clips shown are all good ones. Some of these include "Gift Wrapped," "Tweety's Circus," and "A Street Car Named Sylvester." The new material with the psychiatrist is amusing. Loved the crazy ending. Didn't see that coming. Sylvester & Tweety fans might find this a nice refresher. At any rate, it's a pleasant way to pass the time.
