The New Woody Woodpecker Show is a reboot of the original Walter Lantz cartoon series that aired on Fox Kids from 1999 to 2002. It was produced by Universal Animation Studios.

Why It Rocks

  1. It stayed very faithful to the original Walter Lantz cartoon it was based on.
  2. Very well-done animation by Funbag Animation Studios Inc., which highly resembles The Ren & Stimpy Show.
  3. Terrific voice work, notably from Billy West and Mark Hamill.
  4. For this series, Woody Woodpecker went back to his original mid-1940s design, which is a better choice over his cutesy 1950s design.
  5. Good and funny characters that are still the same as always like Woody himself, Buzzy Buzzard, Wally Walrus, Miss Meany, Knothead, Splinter, and others.
  6. Winnie Woodpecker and Splinter and Knothead now star in their own cartoon segments, and Chilly Willy (another Walter Lantz character) returns in his own segments.
  7. Interesting ideas for episodes such as "Automatic Woody", "Cabin Fever", and "Couples Therapy".
  8. The quote - "Tune in next time for Wood Peck ER" from the episode "Medical Winnie Pig".

Bad Qualities

  1. Woody, while still likable, is often very lazy in most episodes.
  2. The animation can be rough in some scenes.
  3. Some bad episodes, like "Woody's Roommate" and Cyrano de Woodpecker.
  4. Several episodes suffer from Swedish and British stereotypes, mainly those featuring Wally, who speaks in a stereotypical Swedish accent.
  5. Continuity Error: In "Fake Vacation", Woody appears to be living in a normal house, but in every episode after that, he lives in a treehouse.
  6. Winnie, while not that bad of a character herself, is the least likable in the series because of her unfunny and rather boring antics. On top of that, her behavior is quite uncharacteristic for this type of show and even the character as a fundamental element.
  7. Some characters, such as Andy Panda, are completely absent from the series altogether. This is because the executives wanted nothing to do with him, focusing more on Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Willy.

Trivia

  • Season 2 was produced in early 2000, but didn't air until September 2001.
