    • NOTES (9)

      • A Street Cat Named Sylvester was released in 1953.

      • The version of Gift Wrapped shown on Cartoon Network and the WB left in the "dynamite in the cage" sequence, but edited out the entire Hopalong Cassidy sequence, because of the American Indian stereotyping.

      • The ABC airing of Gift Wrappedn edited out the shot of Sylvester staggering down the stairs after getting blown up by the dynamite stick that Tweety substituted for himself in the cage. Also cut was the part during the "Hopalong Cassidy" sequence where Sylvester gets shot by Tweety's toy gun and falls down the Christmas tree.

      • Gift Wrapped is available on DVD as a part of Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2.

      • Gift Wrapped is 7 minutes long.

      • Gift Wrapped was released on February 16, 1952.

      • The original ending of Tweety and the Beanstalk, which featured Sylvester landing himself in China and meeting a stereotypical Chinese Tweety, has been censored when shown on ABC. The censored version ends when Sylvester arrives in China, removing the Chinese Tweety.

        A similar gag in the Road-Runner cartoon War and Pieces, where Wile E. ends up in China and meets a stereotypically Chinese Road-Runner, isn't edited when shown on ABC.

      • Although Tweety and the Beanstalk is a Merrie Melodies short, it uses the Looney Tunes opening and closing themes.

      • Tweety and the Beanstalk was released in 1957.
