TV.com summary

The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries is an animated television series which aired from 1995 to 2002 on Kids' WB and was later re-run on Cartoon Network. It follows Looney Tunes characters Sylvester and Tweety Bird, and their owner Granny, along with bulldog Hector (who appeared in two 1952 cartoons alongside Tweety, Sylvester and Granny but was in the series given a new design similar to that of Marc Antony), as they solved mysteries, even with Sylvester still trying to eat Tweety in the middle of solving the mysteries, but Hector acted as a bodyguard for Tweety, and would even beat Sylvester up (usually out of shot, but sometimes behind a blind). The first season was dedicated to the memory of Friz Freleng, who had just died in 1995. Also, it contents only single episodes, in contrast to the other seasons, which are all with two cases. The series successfully attempted to recapture the spirit of the original shorts. Image File history File links The_Sylvester_and_Tweety_Mysteries. ...

Tweety (111 words)
Tweety is a character in the Warner Brothers Looney Tunes series of animated cartoons.
Tweety is a small yellow bird who is chased by Sylvester the cat.
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.
Sylvester History (411 words)
Sylvester's best-known role, by far, was as the foil of Tweety Bird, an innocent-looking little imp who delighted in visiting mayhem on any "puddy tat" unwise enough to antagonize him.
Later that year, a "Tweety and Sylvester" series was added to that title, and from then on, one was seldom seen in comics without the other.
It is his association with Tweety to which Sylvester owes his star status in modern cartoons, as well, Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, which, since 1995, has aired on the Warner Bros. television channel, is based on the pair's long-running and highly popular synergy.
