Tweety is a fictional character in the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes series of animated cartoons. Tweety is a small, innocent-looking yellow bird who is chased by Sylvester the cat. Despite the size and intelligence of his enemy, Tweety always manages to get the upper hand because he is quick, conniving and relentless -- and as vicious as he appears innocent. His lack of size and strength is not a limitation -- he simply steers the enemy cat towards an aggressive Hector the Bulldog, an indignant Granny (voiced by June Foray), or an oncoming train or bottomless crevasse as opportunity provides.

Tweety is sometimes incorrectly called "Tweety Pie", that name originated from the episode called Tweety Pie.



During the 1990s, Tweety also starred in an animated TV series called The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, in which Granny ran a detective agency with the assistance of Tweety and Sylvester.
