Sylvester the cat is called "Thomas" in Tweety Pie.
Tweety Pie won the Warner Bros. studios their first Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons) in 1948.
When Tweety's creator, director Bob Clampett, left the Warner Bros. studio in 1946, he was working on a fourth film starring Tweety, whom he would pair with Friz Freleng's character Sylvester the Cat, who previously appeared together with Porky Pig in his cartoon Kitty Kornered (1946). Freleng adopted the Tweety project and merged it with a project he was working on: a follow-up to his second Sylvester cartoon, Peck Up Your Troubles, featuring Sylvester in pursuit of a witty woodpecker.
Goof: In the scene from Satan's Waitin' where Sylvester loses four lives in the shooting gallery, he is actually shot five times. Somehow, the first shot does not cost him a life. After the second shot, the scene cuts over to the waiting bench. Life #4 is there as a result of that second shot, then #5, #6, and #7 appear alongside one another.
A Gruesome Twosome was the last Tweety film directed by Clampett, and the last one before he is permanently paired with Sylvester the Cat.
John Kricfalusi, the creator of the show Ren and Stimpy mentioned that he combined the two cats seen in A Gruesome Twosome to create the character of Stimpy (he took the Jimmy Durante cat's coloring and nose and the stupid one's girth and personality.
A Gruesome Twosome was the last cartoon in which Tweety was drawn without feathers on his body.
A Tale Of Two Kitties marks the first appearance of the characters of Babbit and Catstello. They would later be seen in A Tale of Two Mice (1945), The Mouse-Merized Cat (1946), and in several cameo appearances on the Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries TV series (1996).
In the film Bugs Bunny: Superstar, director Bob Clampett talked about the baby bird from A Tale Of Two Kitties. He said that the bird's look was based to some extent on his own naked baby picture. He said the censors objected to the bird looking naked, so they painted yellow feathers on him in later cartoons, and he became the familiar canary known as Tweety.
The bird seen during A Tale Of Two Kitties is small and pink (like a baby bird), but its voice and behavior are already fully developed as the familiar "Tweety" character.
The bird seen in A Tale Of Two Kitties has no name in the cartoon, but was referred to by its developers as "Orson", possibly because its jowly appearance reminded them of Orson Welles.

Mexicali Shmoeswas nominated for Best Short Subject:Cartoons in the 1959 Academy Awards.
