Friz Freleng wrote and directed all the Tweety and Sylvester cartoons, we are told in this behind-the-scenes documentary, which was part of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVD set. Freleng is seen here, which is nice for cartoon buffs since the man was one of the legends in the business.
Freleng comment, "I liked Sylvester because he was the fall-guy and all the gags came from his failures."
The one "Tweety and Sylvester" cartoon that is given extra treatment here is "Birds Anonymous," the Oscar-winning one in which Sylvester tried to go against his nature and treat the bird nicely. It's a spoof of Alcoholics Anonymous and Mel Blanc did about 15 voices in this one, according to his son Noel. The artwork and sound also is recognized for this particular cartoon.
This bonus feature really was more of a tribute to Freleng than a comment on the popular cartoon. This feature, seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three DVD, was okay, but I was looking for an insight into "Tweety" and "Sylvester" characters, and that wasn't here.
