Storyline

Tweety Bird sits in his house, forlorn over the fact he can't fly outside like other birds because of his hungry puddy predator, Sylvester, who lurks outside. Granny reads an advertisement for a jet-propelled cage and decides to order one, which will allow her bird to fly outside safely. Sylvester doesn't give up easily, of course, and employs several tricks to get at the bird, all which (of course) fail. In the windup, Sylvester joins the U.S. Air Force, vowing to get even with the object of his carnivorous desire. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Mel Blanc, speaking as Tweety Bird, didn't say Tweety's most popular quote, "Ooh, I tawt I taw a putty tat!", four times. First, Snow Business (1953). Second has a cameo of Tweety, Heir-Conditioned (1955). Third, The Last Hungry Cat (1961). Fourth, The Jet Cage (1962). See more »

Goofs

Although Tweety's cage is supposed to be jet powered, the engine sound effects are those of a propeller-driven aircraft. See more »

5 July 2003 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Lackluster entry in the Tweety-Sylvester series has Tweety given flight by using a jet-propelled bird cage that Granny has bought for him. The jokes don't seem to work very well here, as Sylvester's largely silent performance makes this more of a Road-Runner movie. Mel Blanc's voicing seems off here, more of a high-pitched cross between Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny than Tweety's usual innocent malignity, and Sylvester sounds a lot drier than usual.
