Storyline

Woody is asked by a law officer to serve a court summons on Buzz Buzzard. Woody accepts but when Buzz takes a look at the summons, he disposes of Woody and thwarts all his attempts to deliver it. Finally, Woody uses hypnotism to get Buzz to accept it and, just for kicks, hypnotizes him into thinking he's various animals and getting him to wander around a skyscraper skeleton. Finally, Woody brings Buzz into the officer who serves Woody with a court summons for practicing hypnotism out of season. The enraged woodpecker in turn hypnotizes Buzz into thinking he's a hungry giant and the officer is a ham sandwich. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

Woody in 3D!
3 October 2006 | by rikp1964See all my reviews

I saw all 5 of the Hollywood-produced 3D animated shorts in one program at the second 3D Film Festival at the Egyptian in Hollywood and this and the Casper "Boo Moon" stood out (the others are Popeye in "Ace of Space," Bugs Bunny in "Lumber-Jack Rabbit" and Donald Duck/Chip 'n Dale in "Working for Peanuts"). Woody's hi-jinks are especially suited to the third dimension and the cartoon cliché of a high-altitude stumble around the girders of a construction site really works in this short (in 3D). At one point I got vertigo when the camera looked down. I'm surprised Warner Bros. didn't use Tweety in their animated 3D short because a bird has access to 3 directions/dimensions of movement and seems like a natural for 3D.
