Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In "Belle Boys" as Buzz Buzzard steps in the elevator for Woody to give him a ride up, Woody is seen without his Bell boy uniform.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Woody's original theme:

      Everybody thinks I'm crazy!
      Yessiree, that's me, that's me!
      I chop a hole in ev'ry tree!
      That's what I'm cracked up to be--
      Knock on wood...a-when I knock on woo-ood!
      So I'm crazy!
      So what-what can I do?
      So are you!

  • NOTES (4)

    • Woody has green eyes and purple eyelids in the cartoon "Woody Woodpecker".

    • "Broadway Bow Wows" was made independently by the Grantray studio. Grantray (Lawrence) was of course Grant Simmons and Ray Patterson' post-MGM studio. Lantz gave them the go-ahead to write and direct several theatrical cartoons for him. There was no need for them to hire their own music director or background people since Lantz people needed the work. Walter Lantz went so far as to have have a complete budget worked out for every facet of these two cartoons, but was shrewd enough to be sure he obtained ownership of them outright. The relationship is very nearly identical to Iwerks Cartoon Films Ltd. making all those "Color Rhapsodies" for Mintz/Columbia but then having them scored by the Mintz music director, and then the cartoons were the property of Columbia.

    • As John and Mary's name quickly moves up to the top of the marquee, watch for the names of the following acts (from bottom to top): "Mophisto the Magician", "The Duo Trio", "Chinese Jugglers", "Trained Seals", "Omalet in Hamlet", "Tightrope Walkers", "'Gulpo' the Sword Swallower", "Tiny the Elephant", "Snake Hips "Suzzy"", "Pierre's Puppets", "Seedy's Bird Act", "Max and His Sax", and "The Gilhooley Girls."

    • "Woody Woodpecker" is the first "offcial" Woody Woodpecker starring cartoon.
