Synopsis

Indexer Notes

"And Tweety" is added to the oft-used Daffy Duck logo, and in the same font. The unique dialogue-stylings of Vic Lockman are all over this story.

GOOD BIT 1: Tweety asks a man about wishing at the park fountain:
TWEETY: "Say, Mister... Does it weally work to wish here?"
MAN: "I'll say it does! Last April I wished it would rain, and it DID!"

GOOD BIT 2: In order to get food from Elmer, Daffy outfits Tweety with a tiny Fudd-like derby and, factoring-in their similar speech impediments, has the bird pretend to be Elmer's conscience:
TWEETY: "Yoo-hoo, Elmer Fudd! I am your conscience!"
ELMER 1: "Gwacious! I didn't know I had... You DO SOUND LIKE ME... I guess you ARE my conscience!"
