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>

Amusing
5 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sensing her little Tweety Pie longs to fly with the other birds, Granny buys a jet cage that allows Tweety to fly inside his new cage. Seeing his prey out of the house for the first time in ages, Sylvester plots to capture the bird for his supper –even if it means taking to the sky to get him.

From director Freleng I had reasonable hopes for this film and it did well to take the time honoured battle between Tweety and Sylvester and make it still feel quite fresh and funny. Tweety Pie is not my favourite character but I still enjoyed this short. It had touches of imagination and the basic jokes were delivered in such a way that I still was amused by them.

Minor characters deliver the odd line and the end result is the same old material, altered slightly by the plot device of the flying cage. If you like the material then you'll like this short. I'm not a big fan but still found enough to laugh about and enjoy.

Overall, yet another amusing entry in the series, this time altered by another different plot device. Fun but not anything you haven't seen before.
