A new Looney Tunes short starring Tweety and Sylvester will debut Friday before showings of the Warner Bros. animated feature "Happy Feet Two." But while the short "I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat" is computer animated and in 3-D, the soundtrack dates back to 1951 and a novelty song recorded by voice-over artist Mel Blanc.
The song, which has the same title as the short, features Blanc, the actor who created the voices for all the Looney Tune classics characters, including Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck and Pepe Le Pew. The song was written by Alan Livingston, Billy May and Warren Foster, and was highly popular when it was released.
