A woman does not realise that Rudolph the cat has been eating five of her pet birds. Her new bird, named Petey, is able to outsmart the cat.
Changes in the 1948 color remakeEdit
- The opening sequence is much shorter in the color remake than the original.
- Although the woman is still the same, Petey and Rudolph are replaced by the more popular Sylvester and Tweety.
- There is more slapstick and cartoon violence than the original. Also unlike the color remake, the cat and canary do not speak.
- Sylvester counts out the number of birds he has eaten by stamps on the wall, rather than counting manually by paws like what Rudolph did. Also, while Sylvester hiccupped out feathers of only one bird in the remake, Rudolph hiccuped feathers of five birds in the original.
- The bulldog is absent in the original b&w cartoon either. In the color remake, Tweety defeated Sylvester by trapping him in the cage with Hector the Bulldog. While in the original, Petey fought with Rudolph in the cage and ate the cat up (in an unusual twist).
