| An obvious knock-off of Sylvester and Tweety--but still a lot of fun
While this is a Tex Avery directed cartoon, it's about the most conventional cartoon for the studio that I can recall having seen. Just a year or two before this Avery MGM cartoon was made, Sylvester and Tweety over at Looney Toons were coming into their own as a team. This MGM cartoon is an obvious attempt to create a knock-off of the popular series--with a few cute twists. This film is about a cat pretending to be a dog so it can sneak into a home and eat the canary (called, of all things, "Tweety Bird"). It seems that Butch the dog believes this cat in disguise is his friend and most of the cartoon the cat tries to distract the dog so it can eat the personality-deprived bird (it's not much like Tweety--it never tries to kill the cat even once). To distract the dog, the cat keeps giving him a seemingly endless supply of bones. This leads to a very funny conclusion to the film when the dog finally catches on to the ruse. I don't want to spoil it, but it is a funny and interesting twist.
