Not appropriate jokes I want my child or any child to listen to. This movie should just not be valued as anything funny or for anyone to watch. There is jokes making funny of the police in and making them racist against the black cat (Sylvester) and beating him without reasonable cause and they introduce themselves as Nutz and Deez. Within minutes from that Tweeties cousin cracks the next line as in we don’t have anything but Deez Nutz pointing to a bowl of nuts. And then Tweety says to his KIDNAPPER that he thought they were friends because he even helped him put his UNDERWEAR ON. And then of course the movie persists to make jokes about pulling down underwears and making butt jokes. And then there’s a scene of where they are talking about the Jesse’s girl tune and are pointing it out there that the man who sings that song is really gay and needs to tell Jesse how he feels about him already. THIS IS NOT ENTERTAINMENT! All of this is just down right a gross movie and not the Loony Tunes I ever remember watching as a kid! And if you think children don’t realize this, think again! My 5 year old gasped (especially at the helping up underwear part) and I had to tell him that friends don’t help put underwear on that only mommies and daddies do. Parents protect your children and don’t let them watch this nonsense. This isn’t entertainment for anyone. This needs taken down. My list could go on of inappropriate lingos in this movie.

Is It Any Good?

This is a silly caper in the tradition of classic Warner Bros. cartoons. While there's not as much over-the-top slapstick violence and pratfalls as in the 'toons of yesteryear, King Tweety still has its fair share of scenes in which Sylvester is, among other things, chopped up by a ceiling fan, burned by lava, and beaten by dog bones until an exaggerated lump forms on the crown of his feline head. While the story is very much for kids, there are also moments of relatively sophisticated humor intended for older audiences, including an absurdly funny aside concerning the hit 1980s song "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield.

While the meta humor is refreshing compared to kids' entertainment that doesn't even bother trying to provide something for the adults watching, overall King Tweety is still a pretty standard story. On the plus side, with no disrespect intended toward the great Mel Blanc, it's worth noting that there is refreshing diversity in the voice cast. All in all, this is an enjoyable, if not unforgettable, update on classic cartoon characters.
