Storyline

Woody is running a babysitting service and is offered $50 by one couple if he will look after their "baby". Not one to pass up this much money, he jumps at the chance. He shows the parents out and settles in. Unfortunately, when he checks in on the infant, the "baby" is revealed to be a pet gorilla! Woody is reluctant but realizes, if he sticks it out, he will be rewarded with $50. After a nightmarish experience looking after the ape (and trying to put it to sleep), Woody finally is able to at least watch TV where he sees a news report about the gorilla's parents who just left and are now going on a 20-year-long vacation!

Babysitter Woody
23 January 2009 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

One of Lantz's genius Woody's shorts, really funny and full of movements and action with some out-of-the-routine techniques ..

The episode starts with Woody in a babysitting office, he receives a phone call from Mrs J. T. MoneyBills asking him for his services for her baby for 50$, Woody accepts greedily thinking he'll have easy 50$ for just watching TV while the baby is asleep, When the baby starts to cry .. Woody discovers to his great surprise that the baby is a giant gorilla!! an African gorilla was brought by Mr and Mrs MoneyBills in a Safari trip to Africa ..

Woody starts his hard babysitting job by following instructions from a book, he starts by giving the baby giant gorilla a bottle of milk and trying to put him asleep, the baby gorilla refuses and hence Woody -in a series of funny and comedy scenes= tries to force him to sleep by tiring him by games, all the games and tricks comes against Woody, each time Woody gets angry from the job he remembers the 50$ to convince himself to continue in babysitting the baby gorilla, at last Woody puts him asleep by a huge rock on his head, the baby gorilla gets asleep and Woody goes back to watch TV, in an News flash Woody finds that Mr and Mrs MoneyBills has gone to Africa for a new Safari trip!! Woody shouts in desperation: My money!! .. as the money is lost .. Woody shots the plane in the TV !!, he goes to the baby and hits and annoys him .. the baby giant gorilla wakes up and cries .. Woody went back to the living room and starts to jump and dance all around the room A really good cartoon from the golden era of 50th cartoons, I watched this episode in the Woody Woodpecker show when I was about 6 years old I thought that I'd never see it again but I've watched again since about 10 minutes and I really found it joyful *** Lo'ay
