With the rise of the DVD, VHS tapes are now being forced into extinction. It's a bit of a shame because there are a lot of excellent collections of both short and animated films that will no longer be available to consumers, except if a person purchases a complete set of something. TWEET AND LOVELY is an example. This VHS includes ten Tweety Bird shorts including the last Tweety short made that was shown in theaters, "Hawaiian Aye Aye". A few of these shorts are available on the Looney Golden Collections DVD sets, e.g. "Birds Anonymous" appears on Volume 3 of the set. However, most of these short are yet unavailable on DVD and for fans of Tweety Bird, that's a downer. The shorts included on the tape are as follows.
"Birds Anonymous"--Sylvester joins a 12-step program in an attempt to break his habit of eating birds so that he can be friends with Tweety.
"Fowl Weather"--This short takes place on a farm. Granny leaves for the day and Sylvester attempts to eat Tweety while she is gone. Hector is the dog who tries to watch over Tweety. Meanwhile, Tweety hides out with the chickens to keep away from that mean ole' putty cat.
"Greedy for Tweety"-- This short takes place in a city. Sylvester chases Tweety and Spike the Dog chases Sylvester. The chase ends up in a car accident that brings the three critters to an animal hospital where the mischief continues.
"Catty Cornered"--Tweety is a valuable bird worth a million dollars and is stolen by a bunch of gangsters. Sylvester wants to eat Tweety, but ends up rescuing him and becomes a hero instead.
"A Pizza Tweety-Pie" - Granny and Tweety are on vacation in Venice, Italy. Sylvester attempts to conquer the canals to get the bird.
"Tugboat Granny"-- Granny operates a tugboat with Tweety aboard. Sylvester attempts to maneuver through the water to swipe the bird.
"Tweety's Circus"-- Sylvester finds himself dealing with lions after trying to eat Tweety at the circus.
"Tweet and Lovely"-- Tweety lives in a high rise birdhouse and is protected by Spike the Dog. Sylvester tries his usual tricks to get the bird.
"Rebel Without Claws"-- Tweety is a Confederate messenger bird sent across enemy lines during the Civil War. Sylvester is the Union's "Secret Messenger Destroyer" and is sent to capture Tweety. He is actually successful, but there's a surprise ending.
"Hawaiian Aye Aye"-- Granny takes Tweety on a vacation to Hawaii. Sylvester is a starving cat on a small island who sees Tweety and attempts to steal him and eat him. The only problem is that Tweety is protected by Granny's pet shark, Sharky.
For fans of Tweety Bird, this is a must-have collection. I normally don't recommend VHS tapes anymore, but as of September 2008, TWEET AND LOVELY is the only way a person can see some of these great Tweety Bird shorts. Highly recommended for fans of Tweety as well as anyone who just enjoys classic Warner Brother cartoons.

"I TAWT I TAW A PUDDY TAT! I DID! I DID TAW A PUDDY TAT!" And your favorite widdle bird tweety, too--in ten "twee-mendous" cartoon classics also starring Sylvester, and many more! It's fine-feathered fun with Tweety and friends in this all-Tweety collection of cartoons. First, it's time for fairy-tale fun in "Red Riding Hoodwinked" and it's a barnyard bust for that silly "Sylvester in Fowl Weather." Tweety, Sylvester and Spike mix it up in a hilarious hospital stay in "Greedy For Tweety." And, see Sylvester as hero (!?!) when he gets "Catty Cornered" by gangsters Rocky & Nick. That's "amore" when it's Tweety vs. Sylvester in Italy in "A Pizza Tweety Pie." All-Aboard for laughs when Sylvester joins "Tweety's Circus." Sylvester's Tweety-Catching contraptions go haywire in "Tweet & Lovely." History will never be the same in "Rebel Without Claws." And, in "Hawaiian Aye Aye," Tweety gets protected from more than the sun by Granny's pet shark.
