Tweety Biography

He’s the little yellow canary bird that is the eternal target of Sylvester the Cat.
Tweety usually benefits from either the intercession of outsiders, such as Granny or one of the generic bulldogs that infest WB cartoons, or just plain cartoon laws of gravity and luck.
On occasion, and this was particularly true in his first few cartoons, Tweety would take the offensive in protecting himself.

Tweety was the creation of Bob Clampett, who had a fascination with baby birds he fondly remembered from nature films, as well as a baby picture of himself he remembered rather less fondly.
While WB had had similar birds before, Clampett gave the bird a lisping baby voice, a head proportioned like a baby, and a temperament borrowed perhaps from the Red Skelton character of Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid.
In his debut in “A Tale of Two Kitties” and in the follow-ups “Birdy and the Beast” and “A Gruesome Twosome,” Tweety shows that he is no helpless little orphan, as he uses gasoline, hand grenades, dynamite and clubs to protect himself.

Originally pink, Tweety was changed to yellow, after censors complained.
Clampett did some of the early preliminary work on “Tweetie Pie” before turning the project over to Friz Freleng, who steered it to an Oscar-winning cartoon.
The cartoon has caused some confusion in the name of the character. Sometimes the character is referred to as Tweety, but other times the character is referred to as Tweetie Pie, muddying the situation. In “Tree Cornered Tweety”, Tweety appears in an Automat window labeled Tweety Pie, right next to the Lemon Pie. Tweety makes a cameo in "No Barking," saying his catch-phrase "I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat.".
Putty Tat has also been spelled Puddy Tat, which is now the officially endorsed spelling.
Mel Blanc recorded a hit song "I Taut I Taw a Puddy-Tat" (words and music by Alan Livingston, Billy May and Warren Foster) in 1950.

Joe Alaskey now does the voice of Tweety.
Alaskey is also a very talented "on-camera" actor, guest starring on numerous television series, including "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Growing Pains," and "Night Court.".
He served as the voice of Richard Nixon in the Oscar-winning feature film "Forrest Gump,” as well as the voice of the oh-so-irreverent Daffy Duck, serving as presenter during the 67th Annual Academy Awards ceremony.
Alaskey can also he heard as the voice of Stinkie in Steven Spielberg's "Casper."

Tweety cartoon characters

(voiced by Joe Alaskey)

Tweety, an innocent and lovable yellow canary, is once again teamed with his adoring caretaker, dear ol' Granny.
As always, Tweety is the center of Granny's world. Unfortunately, Tweety's greatest adversary, Sylvester, would like to put an end to Tweety's world -- with one scrumptious bite.
In spite of it all, Tweety remains Granny's most adored and favored pet as well as her crimefighting lucky charm.
Tweety always remains calm in the face of danger and is able to keep Sylvester at arms length outsmarting the foxy feline time after time.
Tweety exudes trustworthy confidence and his feathers are never ruffled.
He's the smartest little canary there is and often takes pity on "the poor, poor puddy tat."

(voiced by Joe Alaskey)

Sylvester, one of the world's most famous felines, is on the prowl in all new adventures.
The crafty and cunning classic Warner Bros. cat continues his lifetime pursuit of Granny's "juicy" yellow canary...the legendary Tweety Bird...and his lifetime annoyance, Granny's bullish bulldog, Hector.

(voiced by June Foray)

Granny is the eccentric, world-renowned, yet somewhat forgetful, detective who marches to the beat of her own drum.
Unbelievably, she is always able to crack a case with amazing last-minute investigative work.
In her golden years, Granny has developed a true passion for adventure.
Whether it's rollerblading, hang-gliding or bungee jumping, Granny lives life to the fullest.
She journeys everywhere on earth solving impossible crimes with her indomitable spirit and keen sense of justice.
Granny is joined by her loyal companion Tweety Bird (also an ace crime sleuth), Sylvester, the fast-talking feline who can't wait to swallow the little yellow canary, and Hector, a burly bulldog who's always looking out for dear ol' Granny.

(voiced by Frank Welker)

This burly canine, Hector, regards himself as Granny's heroic hound.
He has a heart of gold, amazing brute strength and a faithful disposition.
But his biggest obstacle is his mind. It's a real liability and it causes him tremendous anxiety when he really has to think.
He is a terrible decision-maker and is often taken advantage of by the sly feline, Sylvester. Sylvester is well aware of Hector's limitations and will con the poor pup every chance he gets.
Conversely, Hector knows Sylvester can't stand to do something he doesn't want to, therefore, the loveable "lapdog" will happily shove the reluctant feline across the floor, 'volunteering' him for Granny's latest menial task -- which Sylvester will probably trick the dog into actually performing later.
Together this cat and dog serve as each other's greatest challenge.
