Planning a vacation, Woody reads in the newspaper about Swiss Chard Lodge which promises lots of good food (which, as Woody says, is his "favorite dish"). He heads over to said lodge but, upon arriving, is told by owner Wally Walrus that he must make reservations ahead of time... which he has not. Wally throws the pest out but Woody is able to re-enter the premises disguised as none other than Santa Claus. He robs Wally of his food but, once alone with his sack, discovers quite a surprise inside. Written by Matt Yorston <>

Wally Walrus makes a good foil for Woody.
24 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Of the various characters Woody has run-ins with, Wally Walrus is probably the best foil for him, as the funniest situations arise when Woody makes a pest of himself for whatever reason and Wally is the perfect character for such antics. The personality lends itself well to a good slow burn. One of the better shorts with Wally and fairly typical. Well worth hunting up to watch. Recommended.
