Storyline

Woody Woodpecker goes to the park for a game of golf, and quickly gets at odds with some city-workers who are laying a cement walk. His hooks and slices keep landing into the wet cement. But he smooths everything out by putting a couple of cement-trowels on his feet, and gliding over the surface as if it was ice. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Enjoyable...but.....
8 May 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Once again, Woody Woodpecker is being a nuisance. In this case, a guy is just finishing up installing a new sidewalk when Woody shows up. Woody is golfing and couldn't care less that he's destroying the cement--all he wants is to hit that darn ball. The cartoon is very violent and silly and shows Woody to be a real jerk!

The quality of this cartoon is clearly inferior to the stuff coming from Looney Tunes at the time. While the style is pretty similar (with a smart-alec animal outwitting another), the art style is more rubbery and lower quality. The backgrounds are also cheaper looking. Additionally, the gags are decent but not quite up to the Looney Tune standards of the day. Well worth watching but second-rate.
