Western Animation / Tweety's High Flying Adventure

Go To

The city park is 80 days away from being closed for unpaid debts and Granny wants to save it. Opportunity presented itself when she overheard Colonel Rimfire claiming cats were the smartest creatures on earth and willing to wage his fortune that nobody could outsmart them. Granny then got him to agree on a bet. If Tweety goes around the world in 80 days and collects paw prints from 80 cats, Granny wins. Otherwise, Rimfire wins. It's also a musical, and the characters sing a few original songs throughout the film.

This film contains examples of:

  • Belly Dancer: After Tweety lands in Egypt, he quickly escapes into the Pyramids of Giza to escape Sylvester and his posse of Egyptian cats. Once inside, he finds a room filled with antiques, including a piccolo; he begins to play it, and a nearby basket opens up, revealing a veiled/masked dancing girl moving to Tweety's melody. (It's quickly shown that the girl is really Sylvester in disguise.)
  • The Cameo: Various Looney Tunes characters appear in bit parts at various locations.
    • Colonel Rimfire is the club member who makes the bet with Granny.
    • Lola Bunny serves as a reporter covering the story from a studio.
    • Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are at the Swiss Alps.
    • Pepé Le Pew appears in (where else?) Paris, trying to romance a skunk that's really Sylvester.
    • Hubie and Bertie are on the boat heading for America.
    • Yosemite Sam is a tram driver in San Francisco.
    • The ending reveals that one of the club members is Cool Cat in disguise.
    • Various other appearances include Taz, Pete Puma, Foghorn Leghorn, Rocky and Mugsy, and Marvin the Martian.
  • Conspicuous Trenchcoat: When Tweety and Aoogah are in New York City, a strange figure wearing an old trenchcoat, fedora hat and tennis shoes with only his eyes visible through the coat is waiting at the crosswalk. But a spray of mustard from Sylvester, who was disguised as a hot dog man, knocks the figure's disguise off, revealing it's Marvin the Martian on stilts!
  • Disguised in Drag: Sylvester disguises himself as a female Belly Dancer when Tweety is in Egypt.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Aoogah to Tweety.
  • Everyone Has Standards: The birds betting on Tweety and the cats betting against him are both saddened when it appears he could be dead.
  • Human Sacrifice: Well, bird sacrifice, but Aoogah's introduction has her about to suffer death by burning (fitting, as she is the story's counterpart of Aouda).
  • Irony: At the end of Tweety's trip, he chooses to have him and Aoogah fly back to London from New York and tells the people at the airport to give his airline ticket to someone who needs it. When Sylvester tries to find them on using the ticket Tweety gave up, he discovers Tweety and Aoogah already flying back to London themselves right as the plane is taking off.
  • Karma Houdini: Besides not keeping any royal passports he steals, the thief never faces any sort of commeupance.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: As part of a plan to catch Tweety, Sylvester frames him with the royal passport theft. Sylvester ends up being arrested for the theft.
  • Latex Perfection: Sylvester disguises as a human hot dog man this way in New York City, and then at the end, one of the club members pulls off his rubber mask to reveal he's actually Cool Cat.
  • Meaningful Name: Aoogah can imitate the klaxon horn that makes that type of sound, very loudly.
  • Saving the Orphanage: The plot revolves around saving the city park.
  • Stealth Sequel: To The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries. The movie shared much of the same cast and crew, and continues the series' running gag of a random Cool Cat cameo.
  • Walk Into Camera Obstruction: At the end of the prologue. Sylvester says, "Well, first things first," while he is walking toward the camera. And his face fills up the screen, making it completely black.
  • Whole-Plot Reference: To Around the World in Eighty Days, of course. It couldn't be more obvious even if they had a similar title.
