Woody Woodpecker spends his day singing loudly and pecking holes in trees. He infuriates the other woodland creatures - when he isn't baffling them with his bizarre behavior. Woody overhears a squirrel and a group of birds gossiping about him. Even though he just sang a song proclaiming his craziness, he denies their whispered accusations that he's nuts. But after they trick him into knocking his head on a statue, the poor bird hears voices in his head and decides the animals might be right. He decides to see a doctor. But leave it to Woody to choose Dr. Horace N. Buggy, a Scottish-brogue-burring fox, who is, if it's impossible, even madder than he is. Written by
The title character makes his leading debut here. The film starts off in the woods as Woody is going around acting crazy as usual. The forest creatures bring up the fact that he's crazy so the screwy woodpecker goes to see a psychiatrist to see if he really is. This is a pretty good cartoon that has some funny moments but I think it's still a little less entertaining that some of the later entries in the series. It goes without saying but Mel Blanc does a wonderful job with the voice of Woody and that constant "pecking" is a terrific sound and really makes all of these shorts so memorable. I think a lot of credit should also be given to the supporting characters in the forest as well as the doctor. I think one of the best highlights is a simple joke as Woody not being able to say psychiatrist.
