Woody and Wally share an apartment building. Woody's favorite pastime is playing golf... it's just a shame he plays inside the house instead of outside. Finally, Wally breaks his club and tells him not to make any more noise. Woody decides to forget his troubles by taking a bath. His bathtub is coin-operated and when he inserts a dime for the water, it falls down the drain. Woody is not about to part with any money and is determined to retreive his dime... even if it means driving Wally to the nut house in the process! Written by

After receiving what the Walter Lantz studio believed was a necessary makeover, Woody Woodpecker spent a couple of years being a jerk IMO. The 2nd version of Woody is voiced by Ben Hardaway, who gives WW a brusque, obnoxious personality. In most of these shorts, Woody is a thief/moocher, living in boarding houses that he often gets kicked out of. In one short, his love of golf causes a guy trying to lay cement to go insane. He causes havoc and often has no consequences to face. I just don't like Woody 2.0 very much.
BATHING BUDDIES is the typical 2.0 short. Woody resides in a boarding house, and instead of being able to abide by simple and reasonable house rules, he pouts that he can't play indoor golf. He decides to have a bath, but when he loses his dime down the drain, he proceeds to tear the boarding house apart...just to retrieve a lousy dime! Long-suffering Wally Walrus plays the same role he does in fare like THE DIPPY DIPLOMAT, THE BEACH NUT and CHEW CHEW BABY. Funny, but not the best moments in WW's filmography :)
