Storyline

Woody's friends warn him that the groundhog has predicted a blizzard. Unconcerned, Woody decides not to go South with his pals. Soon enough, the blizzard sweeps in and destroys the loony woodpecker's stash of food. Facing starvation, a glimmer of hope arrives in the form of a cat. The cat is also starving and it turns into a match of brawn and wits to see who eats who. Written by Brett Johnson

Kind of cruel and hard-hearted....and that's just fine with me!
3 May 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This early Woody Woodpecker cartoon is a lot more vicious than the later ones--which is exactly why I liked it! Additionally, it gives you a chance to see how different the early Woody drawings were compared to the more familiar later ones.

When the cartoon begins, the weather prognosticating groundhog tells everyone to migrate south because a bad winter is coming. All the birds take off except for cocky Woody who announces he has plenty of food and he's staying. Well, the storm arrives in cartoon fashion--quickly and taking Woody's food! Now, after a month of nothing to eat, a cat knocks on the door. The cat intends to eat Woody--and Woody intends to eat the cat. The cartoon is full of cartoony violence and is pretty funny--and edgy to see such a beloved character behaving rather viciously. Well done and about as good as any of the cartoons coming from Warner Brothers at that time.
