Tweety (also known as Tweety Bird and Tweety Pie) is a fictional Yellow Canary in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated cartoons.
Tweety’s popularity like that of The Tasmanian Devil actually grew in the years following the dissolution of the Looney Tunes cartoons. The name “Tweety” is a play on words as it originally meant “sweetie” along with “tweet” being a typical English onomatopoeia for the sounds of birds. Tweety appeared in 48 cartoons in the Golden Age.
Despite the widespread speculation that Tweety is female he is and has always been a male character; something that the character himself has often confirmed in The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries TV series as well as in many comic books created by Warner staffers.
On the other hand his species is ambiguous; although originally and often portrayed as a young canary he is also frequently called a rare and valuable “tweety bird” as a plot device and once called “the only living specimen”.
Nevertheless the title song directly states that the bird is a canary. His shape more closely suggests that of a baby bird which in fact is what he was during his early appearances. The yellow feathers were added but otherwise he retained the baby-bird shape.
Tweety is for the most part a good-natured character happily spending life in his cage or a nest. However when a cat or other adversary threatens him he can become downright malicious and devious even kicking his enemy when he’s down. In many of Tweety’s appearances the bird is shown accompanying his owner Granny.Tweety’nin İngilizce özellikleri...
