Out of work, Woody complains about his not having any living quarters. A slick talking con man convinces him to buy some "magic beans" promising they will guarantee him a home. Sure enough, Woody climbs the resulting beanstalk and finds a huge castle at the top. Unfortunately, the castle is already occupied by a sleeping giant who Woody eventually outwits, turning his castle into a series of apartments with the giant as a bellboy and Woody as his manager.Written by

Woody Woodpecker's take on 'Jack and the Beanstalk'
Was very fond of Woody Woodpecker and his cartoons as a child. Still get much enjoyment out of them now as a young adult, even if there are more interesting in personality cartoon characters and better overall cartoons.
That is in no way knocking Woody, because many of his cartoons are a lot of fun to watch and more and also still like him a lot as a character. He is not as easy to relate to as he was in the previous cartoon 'The Coo Coo Bird'. The story doesn't have that many surprises, with a take on 'Jack and the Beanstalk' that doesn't do much new considering that the story has been done many times to more imaginative and funnier effect.
While there are more interesting character, Woody is an amusing character and never too obnoxious. His interplay with the giant is great fun.
As ever, the animation is great. The characters are well drawn, but even better are the rich colours, meticulously detailed backgrounds and smooth backgrounds.
Music is another strength here. It's characterful, lushly orchestrated and is not only dynamic with the action it even enhances it. The writing is amusing and chuckle-worthy enough and the gags are well-timed and often hilarious, even with a more violent tone.
Voice acting is solid as ever. 7/10 Bethany Cox
