Tweety Bird and the always-naughty Sylvester, the Cat
Free Famous Cartoon Pictures: Looney Tunes Animated GIF Images - Tweety Bird And Sylvester the Cat Fight
In this animated short, Sylvester is chasing after Tweety as he always does, when he is interrupted by an unnamed cat (later into "Clarence" in Looney Tunes comics) who brings him to a group called "Birds Anonymous" which consists of cats trying to kick their bird habit. Sylvester pledges sobriety, stating that "birds are for the birds," but falls off the wagon and chases after Tweety again. His sponsor tells him that cats and birds can live together in harmony, and kisses Tweety to prove it — whereupon the sponsor also breaks down and tries to eat Tweety. This time Sylvester intervenes, and the short ends with Tweety saying "Like I said before: Once a bad ol' puddy tat, always a bad ol' puddy tat!"
. . . in which the obnoxious canary is pursued by TWO felines, onlySylvester the Super Cat successfully eats him--twice. (Tweety animatedshorts are a lot like playing a video game, in which Tweety has aminimum of three lives; fortunately for Sylvester, the penguin-coloredcat will stay looking well-fed but NOT morbidly obese, no matter howmany canaries he ingests--that's Cartoon Rules for you!) WhileSylvester's reddish rival DOES manage to "eat" or consume one of thosedesktop novelty dipping birds during PUTTY TAT TROUBLE, he comes up afew lives short of the standard feline nine by bringing a broom to ashotgun fight, to paraphrase Sean Connery's UNTOUCHABLES line. Tweetyopens PUTTY TAT TROUBLE with a pop culture allusion of his own,referencing Bing Crosby's chart-topping "White Christmas" as he shovelssnow from his bird's nest (a scene later plagiarized by CharlesSchultz's Peanuts comic strip with the "Woodstock" character). It alsoturns out that Tweetie's "gilded cage" alternative (that is, hisoutdoor nest, to which even his usually doting owner "Granny" consignshim on mid-Winter days when his grating ways get on her nerves) is madeup not of twigs, mud, and leaves, but of rubber bands.

It would be interesting to see the dynamic between them change if they started becoming good friends instead of enemies that are out to destroy one another.Oh man, that age-old Looney Tunes cartoon featuring Sylvester the Cat and Tweetie Bird had to be one of my favourites: The never-ending struggle between a hungry cat trying to eat a delicious looking bird who just wants to live her own normal life without having to worry about being eaten by anybody. You have to hand it to Sylvester for the ridiculous amount of perseverance he has in trying to eat Tweetie Bird, as no amount of failure ever stops him from one more shot at a great lunch.Tweety and Sylvester: Birds of a Feather - "You should read this book because you have never seen Sylvester.
