Storyline

Woody Woodpecker gallops into a wild western town, which can't keep a sheriff very long due to the notorious outlaw (and sheriff-killer) Buzz Buzzard. Woody volunteers for the position but barely has time to shine up his badge before Buzz rides in with intent to do harm to Sheriff Woody. But Woody has no intentions of allowing Buzz to follow through on his intents. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Woody Woodpecker in the Wild West
20 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Was very fond of Woody Woodpecker and his cartoons as a child. Still get much enjoyment out of them now as a young adult, even if there are more interesting in personality cartoon characters and better overall cartoons.

That is in no way knocking Woody, because many of his cartoons are a lot of fun to watch and more and also still like him a lot as a character. 'Wild and Woody' is one of his best cartoons overall, not just one of his best to not feature his most frequent nemesis Wally Walrus. Although the premise and setting themselves have been featured many times in animation, it was nice to have a less typical kind of story and a completely different setting for Woody Woodpecker, which does make it stand out.

While there are more interesting characters, Woody is an amusing character and never too obnoxious. Buzzy is a great foil and the two interact very well together.

As ever, the animation is great. The characters are well drawn, but even better are the rich colours, meticulously detailed backgrounds and smooth backgrounds.

Music is another strength here. It's characterful, lushly orchestrated and is not only dynamic with the action it even enhances it. The writing is amusing and chuckle-worthy enough and the gags are well-timed and often hilarious.

Solid voice acting as to be expected.

All in all, truly terrific. 10/10 Bethany Cox
