Snow Business

Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 13, 2015

Granny’s bird and Granny’s cat are snow bound in their cabin. Sylvester kisses Tweety to reassure him. This gives him an idea. These pictures are kind of like Call of the Wild and White Fang, put together. Add the fact that the snowbound cabin is stocked only with bird seed and you get Jack London, strained through Samuel Beckett. Director Freleng pretty well always uses that static frame and the tiptoe music. Nice bit with the paper boat in the pot of boiling water! Skating on vegetable oil is also good, and the spatula that he sensibly uses to lift his burning paws/hands from the grill. This is Canned Feud, plus Tweety.
