Trivia

Woody's design on this show is like his 1944-1949 design which was last used in Drooler's Delight (1949). This design is what Universal started using on merchandise after retiring the 1950's design in 1997. See more »

It's okay, but not much beyond that.

One of many attempts by Fox Kids to recapture the success of Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures after the Warner Bros. produced properties relocated to Kids WB with the launch of The WB network, The Woody Woodpecker Show is the Animaniacs formula but using Walter Lantz's cartoon stable produced for Universal in the 1940s(with the exception of Andy Panda who I don't recall ever appearing on the show) with original material produced by Universal Cartoon Studios(who also gave us a plentathra of Balto, Land Before Time, and American Tail DTV movies). Much like Fox Kids' other attempts to recapture Animaniacs success, Toonsylvania and The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper, The Woody Woodpecker Show copies the format from its inspirational source, but can't match the wit,writing, and timing. Technically speaking the show is well animated with fluid motion and decent character designs, but the humor is much more scattershot with some gags eliciting a chuckle while others fall flat. In terms of shows that tried to tap into the zeitgeist that gave rise to Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, The Woody Woodpecker Show is nowhere near as good as its inspiration but it's also not as bad as The Wacky World of Tex Avery. The show does have a few moments of humor here and there, but if superior products are readily available you're not missing much.
