The highlight is the opening scene
21 February 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Sylvester is once again after Tweety, who is on a tugboat piloted by Granny. The cartoon is mostly a series of gags of Sylvester trying to reach the boat and failing. Despite being in the title, Granny isn't in this much. She's only in the opening scene, where she sings an adorable song with Tweety that's impossible to dislike unless you have a severe personality problem. This is the highlight of the short, as the rest is pretty typical stuff. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and June Foray. Good music from Milt Franklyn. The animation is solid and colorful. Most of the gags work fine but none really stand out. Not one of the best Sylvester & Tweety shorts but a fun one nonetheless.
