Storyline

Sylvester Cat pays a visit to a closed-to-business circus and finds Tweety Bird in one of the cages. All that changes when Tweety escapes his cage and flees Sylvester... and thus, the chase begins. Meanwhile, Sylvester must flee from an uncaged lion he had angered with his earlier remarks. The chase results in Sylvester being pounded by an elephant, falling into an empty water tank, swallowing fire, and losing his balance on the high wire and falling into the lion's mouth. Sylvester locks himself in a cage thinking he is safe from the lion, only to find he has locked himself in with 50 more! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

"Uh-oh, here tums dat puddy tat again."
6 September 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Sylvester visits a circus and tries to show a lion who the real "king of the cats" is. And, of course, make a meal out of Tweety. Sylvester is very funny in this one. I especially love his little "meow" song and the fire-eater scene. The animation is excellent with well-drawn characters and backgrounds and good action; love the colors. The circus backdrop provides for a nice change of pace and a chance for Sylvester to interact with someone besides Tweety or Granny. Some fun gags and lines in this one. Everything with the lion is hilarious. Really a fun cartoon that every fan of Sylvester and Tweety should see at least once.
