Tweet Dreams is a 1959 cartoon starring Sylvester and Tweety. It was directed by Friz Freleng. It is the only appearance of Sylvester Jr. and Tweety in the same cartoon, though the two never interact, and the footage of Junior is said to be a flashback of a young Sylvester.
The title of the short is an pun on the term "sweet dreams".
At the Dog and Cat Clinic, psychiatrist Dr. Milt Towne sees Sylvester, who is having a nervous breakdown. He recounts a short scene from his boyhood where his father wouldn't teach him how to catch mice (actually a scene of Sylvester Junior from Too Hop To Handle, though using the establishing shot from the opening of Cheese it, the Cat!). Then he tells of his troubles trying to fish and first meeting Tweety (in flashbacks from Sandy Claws).
Sylvester then tells the doctor about trying to catch Tweety at the circus (as seen in Tweety's Circus). Then about his embarrassment when he hid in Granny's knitting basket and his fur was knitted into a sweater (as seen in A Street Cat Named Sylvester). Finally, he relates the tale of Tweety shooting him in the face with a gun and Granny shooting him in the face with a plunger (scenes from Gift Wrapped).
Sylvester notices that the doctor is snoring. When he wakes up, the doctor makes an excuse about having to fly to Detroit for an appointment, and he jumps out the window and starts flying. Sylvester flies out the window after him.
ABC's The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show cut the scene from "Tweety's Circus" where the elephant hits Sylvester with his trunk, though the Hopalong Cassidy/Indian sequence from "Gift Wrapped" is not censored (nor is it censored from any other channel, including Cartoon Network and Boomerang).
- Granny and Tweety's respective screen times in this cartoon are limited to flashbacks (in the form of archive footage).
- Although all the other Cartoon Network and Boomerang stations (including the USA) air horribly faded copies of the cartoon, a remastered (but unrestored) copy of the cartoon has been released on the Italian VHS release Silvestro e Gonzales: Matti e mattatori (as pictured in the second video in the infobox), but hasn't been released on DVD yet.
- This short, along with Tweet and Sour, Trick or Tweet, Tom Tom Tomcat, Tugboat Granny, Trip for Tat, Hyde and Go Tweet and I Taw a Putty Tat are the only Tweety and Sylvester cartoons that haven't been restored for TV or home video release (Fowl Weather, A Street Cat Named Sylvester, Muzzle Tough, Catty Cornered, Tweety's Circus, Tweet Zoo, A Bird in a Bonnet, A Pizza Tweety Pie, Tree Cornered Tweety, Greedy For Tweety, Tweet and Lovely, The Rebel Without Claws, The Jet Cage and Hawaiian Aye Aye however do not count since these have already been restored for the I Love Tweety Japanese DVDs in the early-2000s).
