Storyline

A full-length animated feature starring the little yellow bird. When Col. Rimfire announces at the Looney Club his belief that cats are the most intelligent animals, Granny, hoping to raise enough money to save a nearby children's park, makes a wager that her Tweety can fly around the world in 80 days, collecting the pawprints of 80 cats in the process. Sylvester, still hoping to make Tweety his personal snack, is incensed at the thought of some other cat getting the little bird first and vows to follow Tweety around the world and catch the canary himself.

Does have its good moments, but it was overall too rushed and episodic
24 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will start off saying I really wanted to like this film. It sounded really promising, with a decent voice cast and Tweety, who while I prefer other toons I actually like. It was just the matter of a good story and script- sadly while Tweety's High Flying Adventure had its good moments there were some departments where it was sorely lacking.

ANIMATION: I am not going to lie and say it is perfect, because it is not. What I will say is that I have seen a lot worse, but I have also seen better. It lacks the sophisticated and beautiful backgrounds of those wonderful Looney Tunes cartoons made during the 40s-60s, but some of the backgrounds here did have a sense of colour and vibrancy particularly the London watercolours. Tweety's animation is okay, as is Sylvester's, though Granny especially looks deflated.

MUSIC: The best way to describe the music here is pleasant but forgettable. By all means children will lap it up, but adults and fans of the original cartoons are likely not to be as impressed. The lyrics are cute though and the melodies singable, but forgettable after a few days. "The Best Thing You Can Win Is A Friend" is surprisingly touching though.

STORY: I think this was the biggest failing here. Now I liked the idea, but the story structure was too episodic. There are parts where either little happens or there is a lot happening. Pacing will come under this as well, because there are parts that drag quite badly, but some of Tweety's adventures are rushed and sometimes underdeveloped and unexplained.

LENGTH: The film is too short, because of that we don't empathise with the characters that much.

SCRIPT: Kids like with the music will appreciate it, but being a teenage fan of the original cartoons, I missed the razor-sharp dialogue and the witty exchanges. There are one or two gags that are mildly interesting but somehow it didn't feel the same.

CHARACTERS: I love the Looney Tunes characters in general, but without the script and story being as good as it could've been, they felt somewhat stranded. I like Tweety a lot, I think he is cute, but as a lead even I have to admit he is pretty bland. Bugs and Daffy are much stronger lead characters, and some of my favourite Looney Tunes cartoons(ie. What's Opera Doc and Duck Amuck) have them in. It really is fun seeing these zany characters here, but that's the problem, they aren't zany enough, and there are some scenes where there are two characters put together and it doesn't work. Taz works better with Bugs, who can manipulate him easily, than with Sylvester, who works better as the toon who gave the laughs. Same with him and Yosemite Sam together. Plus I don't think the contemporary references worked well either, it felt quite jarring to be honest with you. Awooga, Tweety's girlfriend, is very cute and beautiful on the other hand.

VOICES: Pretty decent. June Foray is delightful as Granny, then again Foray is a brilliant voice actress who can act anything and do it well. Jeff Bennett does well, as does Jim Cummings, however Joe Alaskey was a disappointment. Don't get me wrong, Alaskey is a great voice actor, but he was over-used. If the producers had given him less to do, he wouldn't have felt so overwhelmed. And I have to confess, sorry, I miss Mel Blanc's fiery delivery that made the original cartoons so enjoyable.

OVERALL: Cute for kids, and pleasant to watch, but too rushed, episodic and bland to be any more than that. 4/10 Bethany Cox
