If you were a kid, you probably enjoyed watching the Woody World cartoon. But, as an adult, you can still enjoy the Woody Woodpecker cartoons. You can find many other cartoon characters to enjoy, too. Here are a few of my favorite cartoons of this time. They’re not necessarily in any particular order. Read on to discover the story behind the characters and the many different ways they make us laugh.
Don Patterson, who directed several of the best Lantz cartoons of the 1950s, brought Woody Woodpecker to life in Termites from Mars. The film’s plot involves an invasion of Woody’s home by intergalactic termites. Woody manages to solve the problem with a little help from Scotch tape, and soon starts his own termite-control business. This animated film was one of the most beloved of all time, and many generations have fond memories of it.
This Woody cartoon is filled with action and comedy. The main character, Woody, uses his trademark laugh almost every episode. In one episode, he even falls through a hole while carrying a train attached to Jane’s hat. In another, Woody is seen ejecting from a plane and crippling a military airport sarge with his shotgun. Despite his sarcastic humor, Woody’s favorite movie is Ace in the Hole, in which he accidentally causes a tent to collapse onto a tent.
Aside from the classic episodes of The Loose Nut, the other Woody cartoons are filled with oddities and bizarre scenes. For example, in The Loose Nut, Woody throws a golf ball from a high land mound, and in Who’s Cookin’?, he accidentally reveals French history. The bloodless carnage that is featured in The Loose Nut and Who’s Cookin’ Who? are also prominent themes. Another cartoon, Drooler’s Delight, has Woody cross-dressing, and Buzz Buzzard reaches into his dress.
