Steiff - Tweety

From the 2017 spring/summer range

Sylvester available seperately

Tweety, made of finest mohair, yellow/orange, surface washable 
with embroidered eyes also with gold-plated "Button in Ear".

When director Isadore “Fritz” Freleng was preparing a cartoon featuring Sylvester the cat, with a woodpecker whom Freleng had used in a previous short, he decided instead to use a little yellow bird, rather than the woodpecker, resulting in the short “Tweetie Pie” which went on to win an Academy Award. Once again an Oscar was wan for “Birds Anonymous” in which Sylvester (unsuccessfully) tries to give up chasing birds altogether, and joins a support group of cats with the same affliction. Tweety and Sylvester became an enduring hit comedy team. New characters were introduced to broaden the cat-chasing-bird formula including Granny (Tweety’s nearsighted owner). Tweety’s “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!” innocent view of the world make the contradictory force of his actions hilarious. Neither malicious nor hostile, Tweety dispatches his predators with startling speed an a wallop that surprises and delights audiences.
