Abandoned as an egg, Sweetie grew up tough on the inside, tender
outside. Completely sweet, yet totally diabolical, our sleepy
eyed baby hatchling is somewhat of a Dr. Jeckyl/Mr. Hyde.
As the cutest thing on two wings, Sweetie plays her 'sweet
routine' to its saccharin limits, posing coyly and acting
like a flying Shirley Temple. But deep in her heart, Sweetie
has the survival instincts of an urban guerrilla.
Sweetie has a ravenous appetite for worms, but the elusive
Bookworm is much to smart to fall for her 'sweet' facade.
Often the tables get turned on Sweetie and she is pursued by
Furrball, who she inevitably ends up clobbering.
In different cartoons, Sweetie lives in a treetop nest, in
a birdhouse, or in a cage at Elmyra's house. In most of
these cartoons, Furrball is chasing the little bird, who
always manages to annihilate him.
Sweetie uses a delicate flutter when she flies and toddles
on the ground in a cute 'baby' walk. Her voice goes from
sweet to tough as nails.
SWEETIE: (singing "Rockin' Robin")
She rocks in the treetops all
day long, hoppin' and a boppin '
and a-singin' her song.
Hmmm a hot dog bun... This has
(sweetly and deviously)
Here, wormy-wormy. Look at what
Sweetie has just for little old
you... your own nice and comfy
worm bed. (chuckle) Don't be
afraid, it's whole wheat!
You coward! Get back here!
