Ace in the Hole is the fifth animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on June 22, 1942, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal Pictures..
Ace in the Hole marks the first time Kent Rogers provided the voice for Woody. Woody's original design became a little softer in starting with Ace in the Hole. His bucked teeth began to disappear, as Lantz realized this feature was extraneous. In addition, the beak and feet colors became slightly brighter and more vibrant, and his big chin is gone.
The title is a play on the card-playing term "ace in the hole" and the "flying ace" who would pilot a fighter plane.
