Storyline

Wally Walrus is a day sleeper and requires daily rest while his neighbor in the adjacent apartment, Woody Woodpecker, is a night sleeper who does his chores during the day. Needless to say, Woody's noisy chores tend to keep the hapless Wally from getting any slumber particularly when he burns his leaves in the backyard, the smoke from the burning pile travelling into Wally's room eventually turning the pipes in his bed into a musical organ! But Wally gets the last laugh... Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

"Could you possibly make any more noise?"
30 October 2006 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent short featuring the hapless Wally Walrus butting heads with the manic Woody Woodpecker. Since I want to discuss details here, this is your spoiler warning:

Wally is going to bed at just about the same time that Woody is waking up-Wally is a day sleeper and Woody is a night sleeper. Thus, Wally wants quiet while Woody is up and about-which is like asking for snow in Death Valley for the Fourth of July! Most unlikely in the extreme.

Woody is awoken by a cuckoo clock figurine splashing water on him. He decides he's going to mow his lawn and so sets off down the hallway pushing his mower and singing an aria at the top of his lungs. Understandably, this gets Wally's attention and he grabs Woody and asks him the question I used in my subject line. Woody proceeds to show him that he can, indeed, make far more noise than he had been and the battle is joined.

Woody begins mowing his lawn and Wally has a bit of bad luck with a hand grenade. Woody gathers up his cuttings and proceeds to build a bonfire, the smoke from which infiltrates Wally's bedroom in various way, with predictable (and comic) results. Finally the smoke starts coming out various parts of Wally's bed-frame, making it sound for all the world like a pipe organ.

Eventually, the little redheaded noisemaker must go off to sleep and that's when Wally gets even in the funniest part of the short, so I won't spoil that here.

This was released on DVD at least once, so it may be located with some effort. Highly recommended.
