Woody in a battle of wits with unarmed opponents
30 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

A frequent occurrence in Woody Woodpecker shorts, including this one, was Woody doing battle with an opponent or opponents who aren't exactly the brightest pebbles in the pond. While Woody isn't a Rhodes Scholar himself, when your opposition has the mental wattage of a burned out 20 Watt bulb, they aren't that great a threat to you. Great fun, if a tad obvious at times. Worth watching. Recommended.
