While travelling along a woodland highway, Woody's car runs out of gas. He intends to get some more by siphoning some from a nearby car, not realizing the car belongs to policeman Wally Walrus who immediately chases the bird. Woody temporarily eludes Wally by disguising himself as a gas station attendant who fills Wally's car to the brim with water! When Woody's disguise is uncovered, the two duel with grease guns. Woody, of course, cheats until he makes the mistake of escaping onto a grease rack at which point he slips backward into a vise which Wally uses to trap him! Written by

This is one of the last Woody cartoons written by Dynamic Duo Hardaway-Schaffer, and one of the finest. This is the last of the "victims getting the bird at the ending" style, which begun with "Ski For Two" and continued with "Smoked Hams","Coo-coo Bird" and "Solid Ivory". Back to this one, here Woody is driving his car on the road and his gas tank gets empty. In a typically "Woody Woodpecker" way to solve things, he starts stealing gas from a nearby car, only to find out that it's a police car-and worse, Wally is the cop! After some hilarious oil-fighting and being cheated in every way imaginable, finally WW gets him, in a really bizarre and outrageous way. His Woody impersonation at the ending is one of the most remarkable moments in Woody history!This one confirms my thesis: Dick Lundy simply HATED Woody, and loved torturing him sadistically every time he directed one of his pictures. Great, granted fun for everyone!
