Product Description

This great Tweety original production cel from The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries captures the classic Looney Tunes birdie perfectly!

The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries is an American animated television series produced by Warner Bros. Animation which aired from 1995 to 2000 on Kids' WB. The final episodes, "The Tail End" and "This Is the End" never aired on Kids' WB, and remained unaired until December 13, 2002, when the show aired in reruns on Cartoon Network.

The show follows Looney Tunes characters Sylvester and Tweety, and their owner Granny, along with bulldog Hector (Mr Bees) (who appeared in several cartoons alongside Tweety, Sylvester and Granny but was in the series given a new design similar to that of Marc Antony), as they solved mysteries, even with Sylvester still trying to eat Tweety in the middle of solving the mysteries, but Hector acted as a bodyguard for Tweety, and would even beat Sylvester up (usually out of shot, but sometimes behind a blind). The first season was dedicated to the memory of Friz Freleng, Warner Bros. animator and the original creator of the Sylvester and Tweety pairing. Freleng had died of natural causes at age 88 only months before the series premiere. Originally, the series during the first season consisted one case per episode, meaning a full-length story. Starting with the second season, the series now consists of two 11-minute stories, meaning two cases per half-hour.

Other Looney Tunes characters make cameo appearances, including Daffy DuckYosemite SamElmer Fudd, the Tasmanian DevilPepé Le PewBeaky BuzzardBabbit and CatstelloHubie and BertieFoghorn LeghornWitch HazelMichigan J. FrogRocky and MugsyMarvin the MartianHippety HopperGossamerCount Blood CountSam SheepdogCecil TurtleNasty Canasta, the Crusher, Pete PumaMerlin the Magic Mouse, the Goofy GophersHugo the Abominable Snowman, and latter-day Warner cartoon star Cool Cat who appears in some form in most of the episodes. Bugs BunnyPorky Pig and Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner do not appear in this series. However, Colonel Rimfire, Cool Cat's nemesis, did appear in the series.

The final episode of the series never aired on Kids' WB (in which, after decades of trying, Sylvester finally succeeded in eating Tweety, but it turns out to be a dream), but did air on Cartoon Network in 2002.
