That said, parents doing cartoons without cable will find this a perfect set. It's easy to play one cartoon a day as if it were on TV. Both kids and collectors will appreciate the bonuses in this set, which include one full show and six segments from the Woody Woodpecker Show. This innovative program combined live action Lantz and animated Woody in the studio, Lantz showing kids how to draw cartoons. I would love to have that whole series on DVD. This also recalls the approach of the other Walt (Disney), beginning with the Disneyland show, of similarly mixing live action and animated characters. However, the live Lantz makes very clear the difference between the 'toons and the live animators drawing them, and can say, "hey kids, let's watch this cartoon together". The key word is "together".Read more ›
Woody Woodpecker is one of animation histories most popular characters. He is manic, funny, violent one of a character. And, who could ever forget that hysterical laughter! If Bugs Bunny said "Ah, What's up, Doc" then Woody Woodpecker don't need words, he just goes crazy mode and laughs! Hysterically funny. Early Woody Woodpecker is especially my personal favorites.
First official Woody Woodpecker cartoon is Knock Knock. Actually it's Andy Panda cartoon, but everybody remembers Knock Knock as Woody Woodpecker's incredible debut cartoon. And he stole every second of it from poor Andy Panda and his father. Several years later Woody Woodpecker cartoon called Barber of Seville appeared, and many fans regarded this as best Woody Woodpecker cartoon of all time. Personally, it's not my favorite Woody Woodpecker cartoon, my candidate for best Woody Woodpecker cartoon is Hot Noon. But, I agree Barber of Seville is one great cartoon. I believe every classic cartoon fans had his or her own favorite Woody Woodpecker cartoon. So, buy this set, and judge for yourselves.
This collection not only have many classic Woody Woodpecker cartoons with chronological order, but other memorable Walter Lantz studio's classics also including this set. Some of them never released any kind of format in home video market before! My personal favorite is short called Musical Moments from Chopin. This Oscar-nominated cartoon is musical themed cartoon, and one of the funniest.Read more ›
I remember when these cartoons were shown almost daily on my local TV station, as well as being a vintage Saturday morning staple. Sad, but it seems that although cartoons are still shown on Saturday mornings, this practice still seems like a bygone era. Kids today don't seem to appreciate shows like these anymore. If it isn't "SpongeBob SquarePants", "South Park" or "Family Guy" or Cartoon Network's "Adult Swim", then it isn't cool. None of those are even the least bit cool, in my opinion. And if Cartoon Network or even Boomerang were worth their salt, they would be showing these in heavy rotation, instead of the latest incarnation of "Scooby Doo" (never liked that one, either). Suffice it to say, they don't and anymore, they aren't.
So, welcome back, Woody and friends. It's been long enough. We've missed you. And we'll see you on 7-24.

|Niagra Falls cartoon...||
From a look at the contents list posted above, it looks as if "Niagra Fools", which is my all-time favorite cartoon, is not included. I am sorely disappointed. "Niagra Fools" was made in 1956 or '57.

I just went to Woodywoodpecker.com and it's not listed. That was the main reason I was buying the DVD.

The Bird Who Came to Dinner is the name of the cartoon, I believe. I remember in 5th grade a classmate brought a silent 16 mm film of it (in black and white).
