Storyline

Without a trained monkey in sight, Frasier chooses Woody as a good surrogate. Frasier does indeed get enough signatures to get Woody on the ballot. Woody helps his own political cause when Holly Matheson, a local reporter covering the City Hall beat, mistakes Woody's farm talk as an analogy for the problems of City politics.

However, when Fogarty is caught in a public drunkenness spree, the gang figures that Woody can actually win the election and they go full force on his campaign. Frasier takes this task on as his own personal mission, that is until he has a nightmare of Woody as a career politician in the White House inciting a ... Written by Huggo

Woody Gets an Election (#11.21)
13 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is a city councilor election and Frasier bets that he can make a campaign for Woody with empty political slogans and get him at least 10% of support. It works and then the previous city councilor gets in trouble and Woody has a chance to win. Everyone actively supports him until Frasier has a scary dream of what can come out of Woody's political career. He wants him to stop, but it is too late an at the end Woody is elected.

A pretty good idea. This could have been a good spin off as well, I was wondering when watching this episode if that was on their mind. But Frasier was the best in this episode once again,together with his dream. So I am glad they chose him for spin off
