Con man Buzz Buzzard sets up an insurance office and spots a potential sucker in Woody Woodpecker. He greases the sidewalk causing Woody to slide into his office where he convinces him to sign an insurance policy... the catch being that, if he dies, Buzz receives the hefty insurance payment. Of course, at this point, Buzz makes all kinds of attempts to end Woody's life chasing him with shotguns and axes and pursuing him behind the office's wallpaper (believe it or not!). Finally, he catches the redhead and is about to feed him to a pack of crocodiles...but Woody turns the tables, leaving Buzz escaping the gators' jaws.Written by

Notable for the first us of "The Woody Woodpecker Song"; otherwise, unmemorable
This short carries the distinction of being the only animated short that had a song credit for Best Song at the Academy Awards, a feat most unlikely to ever be duplicated. Otherwise, it is a decent enough, but unmemorable short. Entertaining, but not that special in and of itself. It's on the 1982 MCA compilation tape, Woody Woodpecker and His Friends, which is worth grabbing if you ever run across a copy. This is worth a look-a good cartoon, just nothing special about it but the theme song.
