Sylvester Cat's new hang-out is an inventor's lab, which is near Tweety Bird's house atop a pole. Guarding Tweety's house is a bulldog named Spike. Sylvester invents all kinds of contraptions including a storm cloud, a robot dog, invisible paint, and a retracting grabber. The bulldog foils all Sylvester's attempts to catch Tweety with these inventions.Written by

[after the Opening Credits' music concludes & the cartoon begins] Tweety is bathing, Sylvester looks at him (with binoculars, as Tweety sings in his birdhouse's bathtub & discovers the spying cat,) his remark is not the normal "Ooh, I tawt I taw a putty tat!" This time he says "Ooh, I tawt I taw a peeping tom cat." See more »
Despite being very standard, still a colourful and very enjoyable cartoon
Being someone who has always loved Sylvester, never minded Tweety and enjoys the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons more than some others, Tweet and Lovely was not disappointing at all. It may not be one of the best of the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons but it is by all means a very enjoyable one.
When it comes to the story, one shouldn't expect an awful lot from it. Tweet and Lovely is very standard Sylvester and Tweety, meaning that if you're familiar already with the formula of most of the Sylvester and Tweety cartoons there will not be very much to surprise you. It is also not very hard to work out the outcome of every gag and while the dog is a good foil with a certainly intimidating presence we have seen his kind of character before a number of times and there is very little different here.
However, Tweet and Lovely is very well-animated, with vibrant colours, simple but detailed backgrounds and some as ever clever crafty character animation for Sylvester. Milt Franklyn's music score is outstanding as it always is. As with a vast majority of the Looney Tunes cartoons most of their energy and heart lies in the music, here it is always lively in rhythm, lush in orchestral sound and clever in how it matches with the action. While the humour and material are far from original, though far from tired either, they are still very funny. The gags benefit from crisp timing, solid animation and with having Sylvester as the main character, while the dialogue is hilarious and witty. Sylvester's priceless final line stands out in particular but Tweety's line regarding gravity in the vanishing cream gag(the funniest of most original) is also one of his better ones. Tweety doesn't have an awful lot to do but at least he has some funny material, some of the funniest of his later pairings with Sylvester. Sylvester steals the show, his comic timing as ever is nigh-on perfect but it's also easy to root for him. If you love Mel Blanc's voice work, you won't be disappointed here, his ability to bring manic energy and individuality to more than one character in a cartoon still shines remarkably.
Overall, standard but colourful and enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
