Catty Cornered is a 1953 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Friz Freleng, written by Warren Foster and distributed by Warner Bros..

A still from Catty Cornered.

News was spread worldwide about Tweety getting captured by Rocky and his assistant named Nick. At the same time, Sylvester was in attempt of catching Tweety for his breakfast, but, however failed due to the harsh eyes of Rocky and Nick. After many trials, Sylvester finally catches Tweety, but was then labelled in the news as "HERO CAT SAVES BIRD" and both of them were announced to the public. The mayor then requests Sylvester to kiss Tweety, but he eats him, only to get forced to spit Tweety out by the mayor. Tweety ended the cartoon with "Oooh, he's a bad putty tat".
