King Tweety | Movie Review
This straight to DVD movie is a fun one to watch for grownups and kids alike! I grew up watching Looney Tunes and Tweety was always my favorite so it is exciting for me that these classic characters are still making new movies in the year 2022!
King Tweety features a different animation style than the "classic" toons but the colors here are extremely vibrant! It has admittedly been a minute since I watched Tweety cartoons but I never remembered Tweety and Sylvester directly talking to Granny and having her understand them and talk back! That was a big, "hey wait a minute" moment for me!
On the other hand, one thing inline with older Tweety cartoons are the scenes of "cartoon violence". No one is ever hurt for long and characters bounce back in the next scene but there are instances of falling off cliffs, trying to poison characters and things of that nature.
Language is mild throughout King Tweety but there were a few words/phrases I noticed:
King Tweety features a big, splashy musical number that I was not expecting but I really appreciated! I also liked the "it's cake" moment incorporated into King Tweety as a nod to a current viral trend.
This film bends the classic "cat vs. bird" trope found in Tweety cartoons of yesteryear in a welcome change along the same lines of the recently released Tom and Jerry straight to DVD film, Cowboy Up. No spoilers here though so you'll just have to watch King Tweety to see for yourself!
King Tweety is available on DVD now!
