Warner Home Video Brings the Hit Kids’ WB Series Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries to DVD for the First Time September 9, 2008
Sylvester the cat and Tweety Bird, two of Looney Tunes' biggest stars, team up to headline Warner Home Video's (WHV) latest animated DVD release, titled Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries: Season 1, which will be available to consumers September 9, 2008. Viewers will be wrapped up in several intriguing mysteries that will take them all over the world with a lively cast of animated characters in this two-disc release, which will feature 13 entertaining episodes. Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries: Season 1 will retail for $19.97 SRP.
Originally airing on the Kids' WB Saturday morning lineup, Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries had a successful five-year run. WHV now brings consumers 13 episodes from the show's first season. The series features sweet natured Granny, who opens a detective agency, unleashes her mystery-solving talents and embarks on a globe-trotting adventure along with her beloved pets Sylvester the cat, Tweety Bird and bulldog, Hector.
Together, the gang investigates everything from disappearing objects to bizarre events. Their cases take them all over the world, including Japan to investigate the theft of the world's largest tuna; Monte Carlo in search of a missing platinum roulette wheel; Denmark, where Granny herself is accused of stealing rare Danish pastries; Ireland, where they must find the world-famous Blarney Stone and much, much more. On top of having to help Granny, Sylvester and Tweety still find time to engage in their old antics with Tweety constantly having to outsmart Sylvester's attempts to trap and have him as a meal. Familiar Looney Tunes faces make cameo appearances along the way, including Yosemite Sam, Pepe le Pew, Hubie and Bertie, Witch Hazel and several others.
"Besides Bugs Bunny, Tweety and Sylvester are two of Looney Tunes' most popular and enduring characters, loved by generations of consumers around the world," said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing. He added, "Tweety merchandise alone is tremendously successful, bringing in millions in retail sales. We think Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries will appeal to a wide-ranging audience and we are thrilled about releasing the series on DVD."
