Tweety & Sylvester: 3% Better than Coyote and the Roadrunner
4 July 2014 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

In many ways, there is little difference between Friz Freleng's Tweety & Sylvester cartoons and Chuck Jones' Roadrunner & Coyote movies. In each, the predator is trying desperately to capture and eat the bird.

Of course, the two directors' methodology were different. Jones was a more psychological director -- if that sounds weird when talking about cartoons, sorry -- while Freleng cared only about the gags and their timing. The Coyote's techniques for capturing the Roadrunner grew increasingly grandiose and complicated, requiring the industrial might of Acme, while Sylvester relied on relatively low-tech anvils and generic balloons.

In terms of comedy construction, then, we can conclude that Jones' techniques were like Buster Keaton's, with his immense gags; and Freleng's were like Charlie Chaplin's. Which was better? Purely a matter of taste. Mine runs towards Keaton -- but it also prefers Freleng's series to Jones.

This is a pretty good entry in the series. Enjoy.
