Steiff Teddy bears for collectors and for play
Tweety is 16 cm in size, not jointed, has embroidered eyes, made from yellow/orange colored mohair and is limited to 1500 pieces.
When director Isadore “Fritz” Freleng was preparing a cartoon featuring Sylvester the cat, with a woodpecker whom Freleng had used in a previous short, he decided instead to use a little yellow bird, rather than the woodpecker, resulting in the short “Tweetie Pie” which went on to win an Academy Award. Once again an Oscar was wan for “Birds Anonymous” in which Sylvester (unsuccessfully) tries to give up chasing birds altogether, and joins a support group of cats with the same affliction.
Tweety and Sylvester became an enduring hit comedy team. New characters were introduced to broaden the cat-chasing-bird formula including Granny (Tweety’s nearsighted owner). Tweety’s “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!” innocent view of the world make the contradictory force of his actions hilarious. Neither malicious nor hostile, Tweety dispatches his predators with startling speed an a wallop that surprises and delights audiences.
Tweety comes in a box with certificate of authenticity.
