Another Delightful Tweety Adventure
(4 out of 5 stars)
"My daughter is a true Tweety fan and this certainly lived up to her expectations as well as mine. It was lots of fun and full of wonderful places to see as Tweety went all over the world to help Granny win her bet. One of the best things was adding a female canary named AOOGH! My daughter laughed everytime she made her obnoxious yell but she sure is cute and of course having Sylvester chasing after Tweety all over the world just adds to the fun. It is great to see that they are still willing to make new Tweety movies as well as other Looney character movies as they just a delight for everyone!"
Great video for Tweety fans
(5 out of 5 stars)
"My 4 1/2 year old loves this video. She is a Tweety fan anyway and this video is a real Tweety pleaser. She particularly loves "Iuga", the female Tweety bird. It is fast paced and travels from country to country, which makes the video even somewhat "educational". This video was a big hit when my daughter took it to her pre-school so you don't have to be a die-hard Tweety lover to enjoy this movie."
Tweety fwies awound the gwobe in 80 days

"The day I get too old to enjoy Looney Tunes cartoons is the day I crawl inside a coffin and close the lid myself. While no new cartoons can ever match the work of the incomparable Mel Blanc, I was pleasantly surprised by this new direct-to-video release from 2000, especially the voices (Joe Alaskey in particular does a great job supplying Tweety's voice). Tweety was never my favorite character, but how can you not love the plucky little guy? Wherever Tweety goes, Sylvester is sure to follow, and he's not alone on this round-the-world trip. Virtually every significant Looney Tunes character (except Porky Pig, the Road Runner, and Wile E. Coyote) turns up at some point during this movie, even a few characters I had almost forgotten. My main man Pepe Lepew only makes a quick cameo, but you'll see Bugs Bunny come snowboarding through, Daffy Duck still complaining about not getting his own feature film, Foghorn Leghorn and all his farmyard brood, the Tasmanian Devil (who actually speaks a few lines, which seemed sort of weird to me), Yosemite Sam, the Abominable Snowman, Marvin the Martian, etc. I was especially gratified to see Speedy Gonzales make an appearance, as he has recently had to fight the PC crowd trying to get his cartoons banned. The film also adds a new little cutie to the Warner Brothers lineup.Tweety's High-Flying Adventure starts when a big rich blowhard at Granny's club insists that cats are the smartest animals on earth. Granny bets him that her sweet little yellow canary can travel around the world in 80 days, getting each country along the way to stamp his passport by way of proof. Not only that, Granny announces, Tweety will also return with the paw prints of 80 cats. Tweety will do anything for Granny, so off he goes. People (and cats) all over the world follow Tweety's progress with bated breath, and wagers are placed left and right on Tweety's odds of doing the impossible. Sylvester, of course, isn't going to let some darn foreign cat eat the Tweety sandwich he has been dreaming of for years, but he has plenty of feline competition as he follows Tweety around the globe. The locales Tweety visits include Paris, Venice, the Himalayas, the Great Wall of China, the African jungle, Australia, Japan, San Francisco, New York, and London. He meets a real sweetheart named Aoogah (you'll see what this unusual name means when you watch the movie) along the way, and she proves to be a wonderful companion. There are a few musical numbers in the film, but I would not go so far as to call Tweety's High-Flying Adventure a musical by any means. It's just a modern-day version of Looney Tunes cartoon fun, with plenty of jokes and Sylvester splatters that will have you laughing on many occasions.Before the trip around the world comes to a close, Tweety experiences a poignant moment when he realizes that the only thing worth winning is a friend; this moral lesson plus at least a little bit of geography makes Tweety's High-Flying Adventure somewhat educational as well as fun. It also gives an adult like me a chance to pretend he's a kid again, and that's always nice. The only real problem I have with the film has to do with the animation. The cartoon looks wonderful until Tweety gets a bird's eye view of a new city - here, we're likely to see surrealistic illustrations of the place. More troubling, though, were the animated sequences taking place in San Francisco - here, the buildings and roads were just plain white, with the only colors appearing on doors and windows - this one circumstance of minimalist animation really stuck out. Other than that, the film is better than I expected, and it certainly made me laugh."
I tawt I taw a desert puddy tat!

"This is one of the most adorable entertaining movies available. I am a huge Tweety fanatic and this movie pleased me. To the guy that dissed this Tweety movie: YOU'RE A BAD OL' PUDDY TAT!
Granny bets that Tweety will fly around the world in 80 days, so Tweety sets out and on the way meets a new friend: Awooga with the booming whistle. Tweety outwits Sylvester, a theif, Taz and a whole bunch of puddy tats. every Looney Tune makes some kind of cameo in the movie to wither aid or try to hinder our little yellow hero. Tweety succeeds and a park is saved! Oh so cute!
Great family movie! No swearing or raunchy and potty jokes. Just good old Looney humor. I will gladly let my son watch this. This is good clean fun starring the best Looney Tune of all: Tweety!"
