FYI: Tweety (also known as Tweety Bird and Tweety Pie) is a fictional Yellow Canary in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated cartoons. Tweety's popularity, like that of The Tasmanian Devil, actually grew in the years following the dissolution of the Looney Tunes cartoons.The name "Tweety" is a play on words, as it originally meant "sweetie", along with "tweet" being a typical English onomatopoeia for the sounds of birds. Tweety appeared in 48 cartoons in the Golden Age.
"An Ounce of Prevention" is a public service safety film, made for the Shriners Burns Institute in Cincinnatti, Executive Produced by Noel Blanc and Blanc Communications in 1982. The film begins with Mel Blanc in a TV control booth, who introduces himself and his Looney Tune creations (Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety and Sylvester) who are superimposed in cel animation. Mel shows us a film about Beth & Tommy, two cute live action kids who wake up one morning to find Bugs Bunny in the kitchen. Instead of showing them how to make Kool-Aid, Bugs warns them about touching hot pots on the stove, dangers of electric coffee makers and keeping cookie jars away from the stove
