Everybody wants to get into the act!
20 May 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

A Gruesome Twosome is a hilarious Looney Tunes short. Besides, the great animation, it has classic cartoon violence (falling from high altitude, being shot with a gun). The orange cat is a hilarious caricature of Jimmy Durante. This was an early appearance of Tweety, considering the way he was drawn. Thumbs way up.
