Storyline

Sylvester Cat and Tweety Bird are snowbound in a mountain cabin, and though Tweety has lots of bird seed, Sylvester will starve unless he can cook the unsuspecting Tweety. Meanwhile, a starving mouse thinks Sylvester is edible and keeps springing on the cat, chewing the fur off his head and tail and trying to cook his various body parts. Granny returns just in time with groceries, to find she mistakenly brought back only more bird seed! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Trivia

Mel Blanc, speaking as Tweety Bird, didn't say his most popular phrase: "I tawt I taw a putty-tat!", in six cartoons (at-least). In order, they are 01: Snow Business (1953), 02: Heir-Conditioned (1955), (Tweety was in just a 5 to 10 second cameo, as it appears, Tweety was going to be another cat's "dinner to be", he just a one sentence quote). 03: Red Riding Hoodwinked (1955), 04: Tweet and Lovely (1959), 05: The Last Hungry Cat (1961) & 06: The Jet Cage (1962). In the fourth cartoon, "Tweet & Lovely", Tweety called Sylvester, "a peeping Tom cat". See more »

"What do putty tats like to eat?"
25 December 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Sylvester and Tweety are trapped by heavy snow in Granny's mountain cabin. Tweety has plenty of birdseed but poor Sylvester is all out of food. I'm not sure if Granny just isn't stocking up on food for him or if he's just eaten it all. Probably the latter although the ending to this one makes you wonder. Anyway, Sylvester naturally decides he will have to eat Tweety to survive while a starving mouse has the same idea about Sylvester. A fun short with nice animation, great music, and lots of funny gags. The mouse's attempts to eat Sylvester are especially good. Tweety is as adorable as ever. He sings "The Song of the Marines" while in a little paper boat, which is just priceless. Some people don't like the Sylvester & Tweety cartoons but I happen to enjoy them. Yeah, they can be repetitive after awhile but most of the Looney Tunes shorts feel that way after you've seen a lot of them.
