The best of Sylvester's appearances without Tweety
This short was nominated for an Oscar and deserved to be! There's not even a feather to be seen of a certain little yellow bird and the object of Sylvester's gastronomic desires is little more than a prop in this. The cartoon is stolen by Sam, another feline, who 1) is a "friend" of Sylvester's and 2) will not be a candidate under serious consideration for membership in MENSA in this lifetime. He's hilarious and makes the cartoon. Sylvester works best as a more or less secondary character, reacting rather than acting. This is his best outing without Tweety (although there are one or two with Porky that are close) and Cartoon Network runs this fairly frequently. Most recommended.
