Birdy And The Beast (1944) — Mer­rie Melodies The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Tweety is in his lit­tle nest when a bad ol’ puddy tat– not yet Sylvester– looks in. Tweety says his catch­phrase, then flies off, and the cat fol­lows him. Not being able to fly, the puddy tat “faw down and go boom.”

When the cat falls from a tree onto a bull­dog, the dog decides to help Tweety chase the cat away. Tweety hides in the bulldog’s food bowl, caus­ing the cat to rum­mage through the dog’s food. The dog comes in, with obvi­ous results.

Tweety wan­ders into the cat’s mouth when look­ing for the puddy tat. He lights a match inside the cat’s mouth, which is soon on fire. Good lit­tle fire­man that he is, Tweety runs out to get a hose to help put out the fire. He then dons a fireman’s hat and con­nects the hose to a spout. When he opens the valve, we see that it’s con­nected to a gas can. Tweety sprays gaso­line into the cat’s blaz­ing mouth, caus­ing the cat to explode. Puddy tat blow up and go boom. The cat is recov­er­ing from his injuries, but is still try­ing to catch Tweety.

He turns him­self into a giant nest at the base of a tree… so invit­ing. Tweety decides to try it out, only to be chased away by a large hen. She lays her new nest full of eggs and goes off. The cat shows him­self, his mouth filled with eggs. He again tries to reach Tweety in his nest, where he grabs a hand grenade instead of Tweety and stuffs it in his mouth. Boom again.

Con­cludes Tweety: “You know, I lose more puddy tats dat way!”
