First watched : Uncertain
Sylvester was Looney Tunes' answer to Tom and Jerry ; he was originally to be called Thomas but the suits got cold feet about potential legal trouble. The main difference between Sylvester and Tom was that the former could vocalise his frustrations and his antagonists Tweety Bird and Speedy Gonzales could taunt him. He later appeared with Porky Pig in some cartoons where he was more of a Scooby Doo cowardly characte but I'm not sure I saw any of those.
