Greedy for Tweety is a 1957 Looney Tunes cartoon. The last cartoon to be part of a Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies reissue program while retaining the same theme, "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" on both opening and ending sequences.


Hector, Sylvester and Tweety are chasing each other in the street. But they get injured by passing cars. They are taken to the hospital where nurse Granny tends to them. Only Tweety tries to get rest, while Sylvester tries to get him and Hector harasses Sylvester. Sylvester tries lots of methods to cause pain to the dog's bandaged leg, but always fails, with the dog trying to do the same to him.

Sylvester succeeds in eating Tweety at one point, but Granny takes him then to "puddy surgery" and Sylvester comes out from there with a large bandage over his chest.

In the end the three are released from hospital, but at the street start their chase again. Granny, who had just put "Tweety", "Cat" and "Dog" labels into outgoing patients' list, sees the chase and puts the labels back to incoming patients' list. She then sighs: "Que sera sera."
