Before you learn how to draw Tweety Bird, did you know?
Tweety Bird made his first appearance in 1942 in a cartoon entitled A Tale Of Two Kitties, directed by Bob Clampett, but never met Sylvester The Cat until five years later. The 1947 cartoon ‘Tweetie Pie’ put the two against each other for the first time. The cartoon, which won an Academy Award, was the start of many short cartoons to come.
Tweety appears to be an innocent little bird. Although he seems naïve, he is clever enough to constantly outsmart Sylvester the cat. He is a yellow canary that has a somewhat large head. His temper was at first large, and was often angry. As his character progressed, he became more calmer. In A Tale Of Two Kitties, Tweety’s speech is strange, as he mispronounces many words, such as “pussy cat” (which he says as “puddy tat”).
Tweety’s name was originally Orson, but this was soon changed, as his current name was already presented in his second cartoon, Birdy and the Beast (1944). Tweety had initially been portrayed simply as a (wild) birdling whose species had not yet been specified, and was shown to reside in an outdoor nest high in a tree. After those several portrayals, it was only till 1947 when he had his first domestic role and his first human interaction in Tweetie Pie, of which would become the most noted portrayal of the character (even then however, he would still be shown residing in an outdoor nest in later shorts).
Tweety lives in a birdcage located in Granny’s house. Granny is overprotective of Tweety and keeps Sylvester away from her prized bird. [wikia]
