Birdy And The Beast

"He's got it, and he can have it!"

My grandmother loved this one; her favorite scene was when Tweety pumped gasoline into the cat's burning mouth and made him "fwow up and go `Boom!'" For me, it's the finale, when the cat is dancing around with a live hand grenade clasped in his hands (thinking he has Tweety) and says, laughing maniacally, "I've got it! I've got it! I'VE GOT IT!!!"

Tweety was given his name in this one. But it wouldn't stop there. He was also given more of a personality to play off of the generic cat character. Notice that in the first cartoon, Tweety has a blank expression on his face the first time he sees the cat. This time, when the cat looms near, Tweety is elated, like a child getting his favourite toy at Christmas. And that is exactly how Tweety treated that cat for the rest of the cartoon, he just taunted him and lead him to his own destruction.
Tweety's attack was absolutely relentless too. Like in the first one, he showed no mercy to this cat. At one point he even lit a fire inside the putty tat's mouth, shoved a fire hose inside which was connected to a barrel full of gasoline. Also, it should be noted that this was the first cartoon in which Tweety led a cat into the path of an angry dog. (Something he would later do to Sylvester time and time again).
Then, at the end of the cartoon, after the cat has been vanquished, Tweety confides in us that he "gets rid of more putty tats that way" and then proceeds to add a notch to the many notches above his nest. There is definitely the sense that Tweety, shall we say, has an extreme dislike for cats. But, him being a bird it's understandable. If anyone has seen what a real cat does to a real bird, they'd better understand Tweety's anger. But, the calibre of this anger that causes him to maim or kill this staggering amount is the mystery.
