If this was a Warner Bros. cartoon, this would probably receive two or three stars simply because I expect better from a Warner Bros. cartoon. But because this is one of the few Walter Lantz cartoons from 1957 and onward that I tolerate, it deserves a higher rating. There is not too much that I can comment about this cartoon. The animation in it, for a theatrical cartoon, is pretty poor, but is still better than any animation produced for television today. The story is pretty cheesy as well. Woody Woodpecker ends up on an island inhabited by Robinson Crusoe, who has somehow managed to survive for years eating nothing but coconuts. Crusoe decides to eat Woody, and then there are about a thousand lackluster coconut jokes. The writing in this cartoon isn't terrible, but it is not very good either. By 1970, the year of this cartoon, Woody's heyday was over. If you want to see some great Woody cartoons, watch his films from the forties or from his short-lived cartoon renaissance in the early fifties. I advise people to pass on this one unless they want to see every single Woody cartoon. Otherwise, just skip it.
