The first Woody Woodpecker cartoon to use Danny Webb as the voice of Woody instead of Mel Blanc, although a recording of Blanc's "ha-ha-ha-HA-ha" laugh was used in this and all following Woody cartoons until 1949. See more »

Classic Woody Cartoon
8 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Pantry Panic (1941)

*** (out of 4)

Being his typical, reckless self, Woody Woodpecker refuses to take a warning and fly South for the winter. Sure enough a major storm hits, which puts him near starvation but thankfully a hungry cat shows up and the two are soon trying to each one another. This is yet another winning cartoon in the series and one with several big laughs. The highlight would have to be an early scene where Woody is swimming and goes to jump in the water just as the winter storm hits and turns him into an ice cube. Another great sequences comes towards the end when a moose shows up as Woody and the cat are fighting. The way it ends is something that could only happen in a cartoon of this era. Fans of Woody Woodpecker will find this to be a very entertaining little gem that's well worth watching.
