Storyline

Tweety Bird sits in his house, forlorn over the fact he can't fly outside like other birds because of his hungry puddy predator, Sylvester, who lurks outside. Granny reads an advertisement for a jet-propelled cage and decides to order one, which will allow her bird to fly outside safely. Sylvester doesn't give up easily, of course, and employs several tricks to get at the bird, all which (of course) fail. In the windup, Sylvester joins the U.S. Air Force, vowing to get even with the object of his carnivorous desire. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Lackluster entry in the Tweety-Sylvester series has Tweety given flight by using a jet-propelled bird cage that Granny has bought for him. The jokes don't seem to work very well here, as Sylvester's largely silent performance makes this more of a Road-Runner movie. Mel Blanc's voicing seems off here, more of a high-pitched cross between Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny than Tweety's usual innocent malignity, and Sylvester sounds a lot drier than usual.
