Do you remember the purple dodo bird in an episode of The Flintstones? While it only appears in one episode, it is definitely memorable! Fred buys the bird at “The Buffalo Convention” and it talks up a storm. The bird’s tagline is “Doozy wanna cracker, Doozy wanna cracker.”

Warren Foster wrote that episode of The Flintstones and he co-wrote Tweety’s iconic theme song “I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat.”

Warren also co-created Foghorn Leghorn with animator/illustrator Robert McKimson. He was similar to Doozy the dodo in that he was always acting crazy! Tweety on the other hand is a little bit more mild-mannered and cute.
