Hawaiian Aye Aye is a 1964 Merrie Melodies animated short, directed by Gerry Chiniquy and written by Tedd Pierce and Bill Danch, starring Tweety and Sylvester. Sylvester and Tweety's voices are provided by Mel Blanc, while Tweety's owner Granny was voiced by June Foray. That was the final theatrical cartoon to feature the duo of Sylvester and Tweety together, and the last appearance of Tweety in a theatrical cartoon until Carrotblanca in 1995. It was also the last non-Bugs Bunny cartoon produced by the original Warner Bros. studio before it closed down in 1963, as well as the last Merrie Melodies short with the "target" titles and the last to use Merrily We Roll Along at the beginning and end of the short[1] The title was inspired by a TV series produced by Warner Bros. Television called Hawaiian Eye.

Plot[edit]

On the island of Hawaii, Granny is off to join a celebration, leaving Tweety to look after himself. A peckish Sylvester spots Tweety and tries to get him, but only one thing stands between Sylvester and his prey: Granny's pet Sharky. Sylvester's attempts with a zip-line, an air pumping diving suit and a pair of stilts all fail. Just then Granny and Tweety leave, finished from their vacation. Determined not to lose Tweety, Sylvester rows in a canoe after the cruiser with Sharky behind him all this time.
