Climbing Mannequins

Sylvester gets ready to climb the department store mannequin tower he’s built to capture Tweety in “Bird in a Guilty Cage” (released in 1952). It’s a variation on a gag found in a bunch of Sylvester and Tweety cartoons, usually preceded by Sylvester tippy-toeing from one side of the screen to the other accompanied by Carl Stalling/Milt Franklyn’s pizzicato strings.

The layout is by Hawley Pratt and the background by Irv Wyner.
