Storyline

A crowd gathers at the beach to witness vacationer Wally Walrus thrashing Woody Woodpecker. Wally explains, in flashback, why he is trying to rid himself of Woody... it seems he went to the beach for his day off and, unfortunately, the obnoxious woodpecker had the same idea disrupting Wally's peace and quiet with his antics, even disguising himself as a swami to fool Wally into "finding" him. Back to the present, Wally concludes his story and hurls Woody into the ocean but not without bringing the entire dock down with him, sending Wally and the crowd into the drink themselves!

And, by the way....
26 July 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In my comments about the Woody Woodpecker cartoon THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, released the same year as this one, I commented on the redesigned Woody. What I did not mention at the time -- and which was brought forcibly to my attention by viewing earlier WW shorts and these two on the newly released WOODY WOODPECKER AND FRIENDS DVD -- highly recommended -- is that veteran cartoon director Seamus Culhane took advantage of the redesigned Woody to produce visually more sophisticated cartoons, beautiful work that is a pleasure to look at as well as funny. All is not simple energy and violence, driven simply by the plot requirements that Woody must do something violent and funny to his foe, which opponent is never completely motivated. Here, instead, he is opposed by Wally the Walrus -- with a Swedish accent voiced by the delightful Hans Conried -- who wants a pleasant, simple afternoon at the beach.

In short, this is a wonderful cartoon, well directed, well written, well drawn and highly recommended for your attention. See it on the DVD if you must, but if you can find a theater that shows in in real Technicolor on a screen -- well, that would be cartoon heaven, wouldn't it?
