Not great characters but still funny
High up in a tree lives a little woodpecker. At the bottom of the tree lives Sylvester the cat who is, as always, hungry. When his first attempts to climb the tree fail, Sylvester tries various other methods to get up there.

Is a Tweety Pie cartoon still a Tweety Pie cartoon when it doesn't actually have Tweety Pie in it? I wonder. But in this case the Tweety Pie role is played by a woodpecker while all the other roles are the same - Sylvester and the Pit Bull dog - and the action is the usual stuff. The jokes are fine and are more about Sylvester than the woodpecker. It's not that different from other stuff you'll have seen but it is still energetic and funny.

Sylvester carries the film on his own without too much difficulty. The dog only shows up occasionally to give him dirty looks and the bird is not as memorable as Tweety. This is not a failing though, I'm not that big a fan of Tweety and didn't feel his absence was a problem here - in a way it meant that film had one less `star' to focus on and the cartoon was able to just let Sylvester have the screen time.

Overall this film does lack any other good characters outside of Sylvester, but it is still funny as he is able to carry the comedy pretty well.
