| "Oh you better hide, spaghetti, or the chickens will get you."
The Sylvester & Tweety cartoons, like the Road Runner & Coyote cartoons, typically follow a set formula. Sylvester tries to overcome various obstacles to eat Tweety and hilariously fails at it. It's a formula that works, more often than not, but if you've seen a lot of them it can seem repetitive. This is a very good one that didn't feel repetitive to me. This story takes place on Granny's farm as she takes a trip into town, leaving bulldog Hector to guard Tweety. Sylvester, of course, takes advantage of the fact that Granny is away to make his move towards grabbing Tweety.

Beautiful animation, lively music, and great voicework from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet. Lots of funny gags and lines. Tweety is very cute but underrated as a character who is funny in his own right. For example when Sylvester is sneaking up behind him dressed as a scarecrow, Tweety stops singing and says to the audience "What's the matter? Something going on behind my back?" If Bugs or Daffy did that, it would be received differently by those who dismiss Tweety as the Looney Tunes equivalent of an Ewok. But he was a well-written and fun character with the required intelligence and occasional mean streak one needs to survive in the Looney Tunes world. But, yes, he was adorable and my favorite scene in this was when he found the worm and called it spaghetti, then put a rock on top of it to hide it from the chickens. Too damn cute. A great short for fans of Sylvester and especially Tweety.
