From ToonStar95 :

I really like the scene where Sylvester, after cuffing himself to the radiator, begins to relapse and almost gives into his temptation to eat Tweety ("I think you're... DELICIOUS!"). The timing, posing and expressions, aided by the music and Blanc's vocals, really create a performance that is at once both terrifying and hilarious.
