Storyline

Woody Woodpecker goes out to dine and accidentally stumbles into a taxidermist's shop, thinking it is a restaurant. The taxidermist, wanting a woodpecker to stuff, doesn't inform Woody otherwise, and drugs the 'meal' he serves Woody. But, before he can stuff Woody, he comes to and knocks the literal stuffing out of the taxidermist. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Enjoyable, if unexceptional, Woody Woodpecker short
25 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a reasonably decent cartoon, entertaining and fairly funny, but nothing special, with Woody trying to mooch a meal and fairly predictable consequences ensue. Worth watching, but don't go to great lengths for this one alone. Recommended.
