Storyline

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 J. Spurlin

Woody's First Starring Role
5 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was Woody's first cartoon where he was the star, and his second appearance overall. We get the theme song, the familiar laugh and an opening song "Everybody thinks I'm Crazy." That sort of lets you know what you're in for with this loony animated character, voiced by Mel Blanc of Loony Tunes fame. Blanc stayed with this character until Warner Brothers issued him an "exclusive" contract, which meant Woody had to go, in his repertoire.

Anyway, the creatures in the forest all think Woody's nuts. After a while, he wonders himself so he goes to see a doctor: "Dr. Horace N. Buggy." The doctor, with a Scottish brogue, is nuttier than Woody!

A highlight: Woody carving out a nice totem pole in seconds
