I’d Give Him the Bird Alright

In this clip Castello is aware that he is a character in a cartoon. He states “if that office would let me I’d give him the bird alright”. Castello speaks to the audience and breaks barriers between characters and readers just as in Don Quixote and People of Paper these characters are aware that they are characters being narrated into existance. Interestingly enough Castello tells Babbit that he cannot make him go up the ladder because he is afraid of heights, but Castello is unreliable because he is unaware that Babbit can make him go up the ladder. In the end this is a classic representation of good vs. evil in that Tweety successfully defeats the cats and lives to fight another day.

Caitlin, I have you 10 out of 10 points this round. Your blogs gave me a great idea for a course using only videos and images with narratology for the future.

Good luck with all your studies.
