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 (and named Orson), 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."
He made two more Clampett-directed appearances with second-string opponents. Finally, in Tweetie Pie (1947), he matched wits with Sylvester Pussycat, whose prior films had been equally nondescript, and history was made. That cartoon became the first from the Warner Bros. Studio to win an Oscar. Tweety was cast as the pet of an elderly woman named Granny, who never suspected what a little stinker he was. He was never again seen without Sylvester, and seldom without Granny.
Tweety became a comic book character in the late 1940s, when a "Tweety & Sylvester" series was added to the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies Comics title. In 1952, the pair got their own comic, which ran until 1984, with a brief gap in the early 1960s. Today, he makes regular appearances in the revived Looney Tunes title.
The Tweety & Sylvester series is among the few to become more popular after going out of regular production. Fueled by televised reruns of their old cartoons, public interest in the characters has soared, to the point where they now rival Bugs and Daffy themselves as superstars.
For that reason, when Warner Bros. started its TV network and went looking for Saturday morning stars, the cat and bird were the only ones from the old crew to be featured in a new series, Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries. In this series, they, along with Granny (played voice actress June Foray, best known for her role as Rocket J. Squirrel. Foray had voiced Granny in the 1950s) and a third pet, Hector the Bulldog, solve baffling crimes. It debuted in 1995.
Tweety's star continues to rise. He appeared with the rest of the Looney Tunes crew in Space Jam, and has always been big with the T-shirt and lunchbox crowd. In 1998, he and Sylvester were the subject of a U.S. postage stamp. Time will tell if he ever succeeds in ousting Bugs and Daffy from their preeminent positions, but if an innocent appearance combined with sneaky malice count for anything, he has a fighting chance.
