All aboard with Sylvester and Tweety
30 July 2014 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As someone who does enjoy the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons better than most and who doesn't have a problem with Tweety, All a Bir-r-r-rd was very easy to like. It is very formulaic with a set-up that has been seen many times with Sylvster and Tweety(in a way though you can deem their cartoons as a formula series) and Tweety's final line is not that funny and is easily the cartoon's worst line. However, All a Bir-r-r-rd has some very colourful animation, with very bright colours and smooth drawings. The music is bouncy and brings real character to the action and chase scenes, together with lush orchestration and clever use of existing and familiar tunes. The dialogue is witty and raises a laugh more than once, the cartoon's crisply paced and the gags do feel fresh rather than tired and don't feel repetitive in the slightest, although Tweety pulls the train cord more than once what happens to Sylvester is different each time. It's the interaction between Sylvester and the bulldog that provides the cartoon's funniest moments, and All a Bir-r-r-rd has some violence but never in a sadistic way though enough to allow us to feel empathy for Sylvester, something that the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons were always great at doing. The characters work really well together, Tweety is cute but not in a forced way and while not as anarchic as he was in some of his earlier cartoons there are shades of that and the conductor has some amusing lines. But they are outshone by the bulldog and especially Sylvester, the bulldog works wonders with Sylvester and is a brutish but funny foil, while Sylvester provides and takes the laughs brilliantly- a lot of the time his facial expressions are on par with the gags in terms of entertainment value- and we are sympathetic towards him as well. In conclusion, entertaining and colourful. 8/10 Bethany Cox
