Greedy for Tweety is a 1957 Tweety and Sylvester Looney Tunes cartoon. It is also the last cartoon to be reissued by the studio by the "Blue Ribbon" catalog in 1964. The story was also reworked into the 1971 The Ant and the Aardvark cartoon From Bed To Worse.


Hector, Sylvester and Tweety are chasing each other in the street, but they get injured by passing cars (Off-screen). They are taken to the hospital where Nurse Granny tends to them. Only the innocent Tweety tries to get rest, while Sylvester tries to get him and Hector tries to harass Sylvester. Sylvester tries lots of methods to cause pain to the dog's bandaged leg, but always fails, with the dog trying to do the same to him.

Sylvester succeeds in eating Tweety at one point, but Granny takes him then to "puddy surgery" and Sylvester comes out from there with a large bandage over his chest. Sylvester then tells Hector furiously "OK, buster, you ASKED for it!" but is then chased by Hector, who tries to whack him. Sylvester's bandaged leg gets stuck in a mouse-hole while he teases Hector. The mouse hits Sylvester's bandaged leg, then Hector's, causing both of them to hop and scream in pain. Granny sees this, then straps them both in bed.

Granny tells Hector to stop sulking and "get a hobby" like Sylvester, who is building something over his strap. When Granny leaves, Sylvester uses his newly built device to put a stick of dynamite in Hector's cast. Hector, horrified, switches casts with Sylvester. Hector's cast explodes on Sylvester's leg, causing him to shriek in pain.

In the end the three are released from hospital, but at the street start their chase again. Granny, who had just put "Tweety", "Cat" and "Dog" labels into outgoing patients' list, sees the chase and puts the labels back to incoming patients' list. She then sighs: "Que sera sera" (what will be will be).
