Like most Woody Woodpecker shows, this series played all-new versions of cartoons of the classic characters, including Chilly Willy, Smedley and Wally Walrus. Woody lives in a tree in Wally's yard, always asking for food, fun and mischief. In some episodes, he is joined by his niece and nephew Splinter and Knothead. The two of them usually wind up tormenting Buzz Buzzard when his plans of deceit and deception backfire. Woody was also joined by characters who had few appearances in the original Woody Woodpecker shorts, including Winnie Woodpecker and Ms. Meany.
A new show with classic characters from the Lantz era, joined by an assortment of new ones.
Cartoon character Woody Woodpecker, sporting a makeover (similar to the one he had from 1944-1949) courtesy of Universal Studios animators, appeared on the Fox Kids Network in new broadcasts which began airing Saturday, May 8, 1999.
Forty new cartoons, the first new Woody adventures since 1979, were produced for Fox. Each new program consisted of three seven-minute cartoons.
Emmy nominee Bob Jaques, known for his work on the popular cartoon series The Ren and Stimpy Show, produced and directed the series. Jaques was joined by writer and story editor Jim Gomez, who has worked on Ren and Stimpy and Tiny Toon Adventures.
"We are preserving (Woody's) great legacy by introducing a hip, contemporary Woody to a whole new generation around the world," Nancy Steingard, executive vice-president of Universal Cartoon Studios, said in early 1999.
Billy West, who has worked on such animated pictures as Space Jam as well as Ren and Stimpy, voiced the new Woody. Also providing voices were Mark Hamill of Star Wars, Tress MacNeill of The Simpsons and Nika Futterman of Suddenly Susan.
