Personally I'd put the Walter Lantz Studio and Woody Woodpecker as the second greatest cartoon from the classic era, coming behind only the irreproachable stuff from Warner Bros. Woody Woodpecker cartoons were more sparsely animated than the more popular fare from Disney and Warner, but the setting and background rarely played into a Woody Woodpecker cartoon. All of the action was front and center as each episode had Woody facing off against (and humiliating) some form of bad guy. Most of the toons are a rip of the Bugs Bunny formula for sure, even down to the catchphrase (Woody's laugh vs. Bugs' "What's Up Doc?"), but they're more of a mean-spirited take on Bugs.
This is yet another classic of a cartoon. It is really funny and enjoyable. I like all the other characters in it like Wally Walrus and of course the star of the show Woody Woodpecker. I like this version of Woody Woodpecker and the newer series of it as well.
I don´t know why, but this show was one of my favorites shows when i was young. Here in Brazil almost everyone loves it, but in another countries nobody liked it. "Woody Woodpecker" and "Tom and Jerry" are better than Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Donald... and I don´t know how they got so famous...
The famous quote "HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!" of Woody Woodpecker are for someone annoying, but for me, that's irresistible. He's debuted in a Andy Panda short made in 1940 titles "Knock, Knock!". In 1941, he start a career of 30 years in the Walter Lantz studio despite the low budget. Join also his other friends/nemesis Wally Walrus, Buzz Buzzard, Miss Meany, Chilly Willy, Andy Panda and his nephews Knothead and Splinter. Go back!!
Woody Woodpecker was a brash, high-strung woodpecker whose trademark was his staccato laugh, "ha-ha-ha-HA-ha". The character first appeared in the 1940 Andy Panda short, Knock Knock, voiced by Mel Blanc. Other characters featured were Buzz Buzzard, Gabby Gator, Space Mouse, Homer Pigeon, Charlie Beary, Charles Beary Jr., Sugarfoot, Cuddles, Smedley, and Knothead and Splinter. Voices were Grace Stafford(Mrs. Walter Lantz) as Woody, and Daws Butler, Walter Tetley, Dal McKennon, June Foray, and Paul Frees. The Woody Woodpecker Show Was A Classic Show To Remember.
