In the comments to our "Hush My Mouse" post, J Lee asked: Now -- Wanna go for recreating the opening titles to "Tweetie Pie" using the original audio? ;)
Well, we dood it...
This was a tricky one since unlike "Hush My Mouse", we had NOTHING to go by artwork-wise. I ended up using a combination of the title lettering from the Blue Ribbon reissue and artwork of Sylvester & Tweety from the original lobby card. The background is actually the title card art for "Kitty Kornered" (1946) with Porky & Sylvester removed, obviously. The production and director's credit come from "Back Alley Oproar" (1948). Most of the Merrie Melodies from the 1946-7 season were reissued as BR Merrie Melodies, luckily "Hollywood Daffy" was an exception (which is where the opening titles came from).
Yes, that music playing over our fake opening is the original. For whatever reason, some TV prints of this cartoon used the original audio playing over the Blue Ribbon opening titles. Weird, huh? Our pal Larry T posted this oddity over on his blog awhile ago.
