The Maltese Canary is the ninth episode of The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries.


The title is play on the 1941 film The Maltese Falcon.


Granny goes to San Francisco, California to take over for a detective who’s leaving a job While there, Tweety is mistaken to be the valuable "Maltese Canary" by two shady characters (one of them keeps changing her name). The shady characters’ boss, a guy who is fat, attempts to get inside but his weight pushes him back, leaving Granny trapped with the shady characters. Tweety flies out the window and Granny sends Sylvester to go look for him. He does and brings him back to Granny. The fat guy and the two shady characters are arrested right after Granny finds the real "Maltese Canary" which was located behind some books. The detective comes back and Granny leaves with Sylvester, Tweety, and Hector.
