Home Tweet Home is a 1949 animated short released in 1950 and re-issued in 1958 featuring Sylvester, Tweety, and Hector.

Plot[edit]

Tweety is washing in the park birdbath and singing. Not far off there are gentlemen seated on a park bench reading their paper. Sylvester is sitting among them and peering through a peephole in the newspaper, inches near Tweety. As Tweety notices Sylvester attempting to get him, Tweety rushes off and Sylvester chases him round and round a little toddler girl on a bike wagon. Tweety rushes into Lillian, the toddler's mean nanny and gains her sympathy to protect him from Sylvester, calling him a hooligan, devil, troublemaker, and rascal and saying "You piece of junk. No. I'm pissed off. You're older than junk, You're a cat!" as she puts her foot down.)

Sylvester swaps places with the toddler and wails to have the pretty birdy. Lillian complies, but when Sylvester puts Tweety in his mouth, Lillian puts Sylvester across her lap and spanks him with her hairbrush. Tweety also spanks Sylvester for trying to him.

As Sylvester keeps a look out for Tweety, he simply lands on his head where he wouldn't think to look. Sylvester sets a box, stick and string trap with a cob of corn for bait. Tweety gives himself away and Sylvester tries to wallop Tweety with a stick, but Tweety jumps out of the way and he bonks himself on the head. Sylvester chases Tweety again, but manages to hide behind a trash can as Hector approaches, walking with Tweety. As Sylvester rushes at Tweety on the path he bumps into Hector and gets tangled in his collar. Sylvester plays as a bulldog then as Tweety notices, he wriggles out of the collar and chases Tweety to a hotel. Tweety flies up onto a window sill four floors above Sylvester. Sylvester flies after him with an inflated wad of bubble gum, but Tweety burst it with a pin and sends Sylvester falling. Sylvester quickly inflates another wad of bubble gum, but Tweety weighs him down with an anvil. Sylvester lets go of the anvil and is sent soaring up high in the sky. Tweety bursts his bubble with a slingshot and sends him crashing down on a pillow with the anvil in it. Sylvester tries to whack Tweety round the corner with a shovel, but ends up hitting Hector, the vicious bulldog.

Presently Tweety perches above Lillian, the stupid nanny, who is reading a book. Sylvester sneaks up disguised as a tree with a bird's nest and uses a bird whistle to attract Tweety. As Tweety settles in the nest, Hector approaches and chases Sylvester, Tweety flying out. Tweety telephones the pet shop for a new pussy cat and the film ends.
