Plot[edit]

Hector, Sylvester, and Tweety are chasing each other on the street. They accidentally get injured by passing cars. They are taken to the Animal Hospital, where Nurse Granny takes care of them. Tweety tries to get some rest, but Sylvester tries to get him. Hector hits Sylvester's cast with a mallet, and Granny sees him in pain, and gives him pills to make him fall asleep, only for Hector to bother him.
Sylvester succeeds into eating Tweety, but Granny sees Tweety's feathers on Sylvester, and when she sees Tweety in an X-Ray, she does surgery to get Tweety out. Sylvester appears to be out of surgery, with a giant bandage over his chest.
Later, Granny tells them that there is nothing wrong with them, and they are released. But they start the street chase again, and Granny, as she checks "Tweety", "Cat", and "Dog" into the "Outgoing Patients" list, she sees the chase, and puts them back into "Incoming Patients", and sighs to the audience, "Que sera sera.".
