Edward Selzer didn’t want Friz Freleng to use Tweety and Sylvester together in a short, instead he suggested using the woodpecker character in the earlier short “Peck up your Troubles.” Friz responded to this by giving his boss a pencil, telling him to make the cartoon himself and walking out. Selzer withdrew his objections and allowed Friz to make the cartoons the way he wanted. Ironically Tweetie Pie would go on to win Warner Bros. its first Academy Award in the Short Subject / Cartoon category.

Contary to popular belief, Tweety’s name is not spelt 'Tweetie.' This short’s title (meant as a pun on Sweetie Pie) has been the cause of the immense confusion over the spelling of the canary’s name.
