Birds Anonymous (1957)

Birds Anonymous ReviewBirds Anonymous Review

Birds Anonymous is a 1957 Merry Melodies short starring Tweety and Sylverster. It is the second of their shorts to win the Oscar, a decade after the previous one.

Sylvester joins the titular group that tries to stay away from birds as they deem it to be an unhealthy addiction. This is obviously a reference to therapy sessions for alcoholics and is done really well. It is a bit too slow plus there isn’t a lot of memorable action in here and it takes its time to get there, but when it does, it is a blast to watch and featuring some pretty good humor.

I loved the ending and it was very amusing with such a great, signature line from Tweety coming just at the right time. The other cat is a memorable character and the plot itself is very well incorporated with these characters. It is an interesting departure for the series with a more drama-oriented storyline and I liked that quite a bit. It is a very clever, very well constructed film that also never fails to be humorous.

Birds Anonymous is humorous, but also pleasantly dramatic with a very good and interesting plot.

My Rating – 4.3
