Tweety Bird: the little canary who thought he saw a
Tweety Bird, a delightful animated yellow canary, like his now
famous co-star Sylvester had separate successful careers in animation.
Then they were brought together in Tweetie Pie (1947).
Tweety made his first animation appearance in "A Tale of Two
Kitties" (1942), with Babbit and Catstello, two cats animated
after the famous comedy team of Abbott and Costello.
The teaming of Tweety and Sylvester was such a success they were
featured in 39 cartoons between 1947 and1964, acquiring two Academy
Awards for "Tweetie Pie" and Birds Anonymous" (1957)
and three Oscar Nominations.
Granny, Tweety's owner was seen in many of Tweety's films, a sweet
grandma who is as nice and sweet as can be, until Sylvester comes
around to eat her little Tweety in which Tweety is heard to exclaim
his famous line, "I tawt I taw a puddy tat. I did, I did see a puddy tat!"
Is Tweety Bird a male or female?
In "Bad Ol' Putty Tat" (1949), Sylvester manages to
temporarily lure Tweety with a fake female canary (actually, one
of his fingers with a hat and painted-on eyes)
Also Granny always addresses her pets (Sylvester, Hector and Tweety)
Male canaries sing; female canaries do not. Assuming Tweety to
be a canary, the fact that he sings is a pretty good indication
that he's male.
We also believe Tweety Bird is an
American Singer Canary.
