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!

Weak Story Told In Flashback
7 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't find a lot of humor in this Woody Woodpecker cartoon. The only thing I enjoyed was the Norwegian accent on the big walrus. The talented Hans Conreid voiced that part.

The story is told in flashback as we first see the Walrus ready to strangle the woodpecker We see why when the story unfolds on how Woody ruined the big guy's day at the beach. The jokes were weak and the sight gags even weaker.

Overall, I have never found Woody Woodpecker cartoons in the class, humor-wise, of Looney Tunes or Tom And Jerry, but they aren't bad, either. Woody Woodpecker cartoons are an acquired taste; you either like them or you don't, generally speaking. The same goes for his laugh, which I always found annoying.
