King Tweety is a 2022 animated direct-to-video comedy film starring the Looney Tunes characters Tweety and Sylvester, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. It is the first new Looney Tunes direct-to-video film since Looney Tunes: Rabbits Run (2015) and the second direct-to-video animated film starring Tweety, after 2000's Tweety's High-Flying Adventure. It was the first Looney Tunes film to be directed by a woman.
Tweety becomes king when the queen of the island paradise mysteriously disappears. Tweety's old enemy and foster brother Sylvester uncovers a sinister plot to eliminate Tweety for good.
Common Sense Media gave the film 3 out of 5 stars. Jennifer Borget, writing for it, "This is a silly caper in the tradition of classic Warner Bros. cartoons. While there's not as much over-the-top slapstick violence and pratfalls as in the 'toons of yesteryear, King Tweety still has its fair share of scenes in which Sylvester is, among other things, chopped up by a ceiling fan, burned by lava, and beaten by dog bones until an exaggerated lump forms on the crown of his feline head. While the story is very much for kids, there are also moments of relatively sophisticated humor intended for older audiences, including an absurdly funny aside concerning the hit 1980s song "Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield. While the meta humor is refreshing compared to kids' entertainment that doesn't even bother trying to provide something for the adults watching, overall King Tweety is still a pretty standard story. On the plus side, with no disrespect intended toward the great Mel Blanc, it's worth noting that there is refreshing diversity in the voice cast. All in all, this is an enjoyable, if not unforgettable, update on classic cartoon characters." Alexandria Ingram of FanSided said "This is a fun-filled adventure, perfect for all ages. It’s packed with vibrant, modern animation and some excellent songs you’ll find everyone dancing along with."
The film was released on DVD and digital on June 14, 2022, with three bonus features episodes of The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries: "Something Fishy Around Here", "The Maltese Canary" and "The Cat Who Knew Too Much".
The film later premiered on Cartoon Network on November 19, 2022, with it premiering on HBO Max the following day.
