In this spoof of Alcoholics Anonymous, pussy cats are cast as bird-eating addicts and go through the 12-step process to deal with their addiction. Sylvester, who could never quite get the best of the object of his desire, Tweety Bird, joins and resolves to quit chasing and eating the canary. Tweety innocently asks the puddy "Don't you wike me anymo'?" setting off a series of events which will test the puddy tat's resolve. Several attempts to get his mind off eating Tweety backfire, leading him to a delirious attempt to eat the bird. Sam (Sylvester's B.A. sponsor, introduced earlier) intervenes and shows how birds and cats can peacefully co-exist, but he falls off the wagon when he kisses Tweety and thus getting a taste of him and wanting a lot more!

Did You Know?
When Rock Hudson
and Jennifer Jones
presented the award for best live action short film at the 1958 Academy Awards, Hudson accidentally read the winner for the best animated short film instead, which was "Birds Anonymous". Shortly after John W. Burton
accepted the award, Hudson and Jones read the nominees for the best animated short, followed by the winner for the best live action short. See more
Our new member has come to us for help. Would someone volunteer to tell what B.A. has done for him?
B.A. Cat #1
I was a three-bird-a-day pussycat, until B.A. helped me.
B.A. Cat #2
Being on a bird kick cost me five homes. B.A. helped me solve my problem.
Fellow members, from now on my motto is: Birds is strictly for the birds.
