“Did many ideas come from personal experience?
Oh, yes — all the time; one of our writers, Warren Foster, heard a child in a park say, ‘Mommy, Mommy, I taut I taw a twirl!’ He brought this back to the studio and the ‘twirl’ became a ‘puddy tat’ so we could get a cat-versus-canary thing going. Friz [Freleng] developed it into the Sylvester-Tweety Pie series.”
– Chuck Jones, interviewed in 1971 by Peter Bogdanovich for his book Who the Devil Made It
