Storyline

In this Walter Lantz Color Cartune---the correct house-name brand for the Woody's, and not Swing Symphony as some Keyworder seems to think---Woody, per usual, is sleeping and idling while the ants and grasshoppers are gathering food for the winter, and Woody even has a nightmare about it. He awakens, under a blanket of snow, to find that both Winter and a hungry wolf are knocking at his door. The wolf has intentions of eating Woody...but Woody also has the same thoughts regarding the wolf. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A remake...already?!
8 May 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In one of his earliest cartoons, "Pantry Picnic" (1941), Woody is starving because he ignored advice to travel south for the winter. As a result, he's now starving and willing to eat anything. Soon, another character shows up and this ultra-violent cartoon consists of the pair trying to eat each other. Well, only five years later, Universal is already remaking the cartoon--with results that aren't quite as good as the original. While the original was among the best Woody cartoons, this one is pretty limp because it lacks originality--but at least it does have a healthy dose of sadism!

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.
