KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28 — Growing up, actor Azrel Ismail loved watching Looney Tunes cartoons and his favourite character was Tweety.
“I liked how cute and cheeky Tweety was,” said Azrel, 38, referring to the world’s most beloved canary with his signature catchphrase “I tawt I taw a puddy tat!”
Believe it or not, Tweety is celebrating his 80th anniversary this year and luxury fashion brand MCM is celebrating eight decades of animated hijinks with a playful collaboration.
Azrel, who can be seen in local movie Biko, was one of many celebrities who recently visited MCM in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to check out the Looney Tunes X MCM collaboration.
Social media influencer Lucas Lau also gushed over the new collection which comprises 30 pieces, from Tweety bags to ready-to-wear and accessories.

“It’s part of my childhood so it’s really cool to see this collaboration,” said Lau, 30.
Asked which was his favourite piece, Lau points to his sweater. “Frankentweety (Tweety’s monster alter ego) is cute!” he answered with a laugh.
The collection, an official collaboration with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products, continues the luxury fashion brand’s long-running heritage in the entertainment sector.
