"I TAWT I TAW A PUTTY TAT": FIFTY YEARS OF SYLVESTER AND TWEETY

Written in the Bugs Bunny: Fifty Years and Only One Grey Hare vein, it's not as good but still fun anyway.

The book is basically the shortened, coffeetable summarization of Sylvester and Tweety's histories, before they were "put together" and afterward. The bulk is the filmography at the back, which has an index by director, animator, and the like (which is an actual plus over Bugs Bunny, but the text in that book is superior). 

The highlight is the pictures, which has some never-before-seen ones. The best was a model sheet for A Grusome Twosome (apparently the Durante cat was a lot more appealing at first). And I'm ectastic to have Clampett's baby picture forever!

Only real complaint is the lack of biographical information of Friz (which I've been searching high and low for) and the annoying error of calling Hugh Harman Hugh "Harmon". But it's good every other way. 

B+
