The New Woody Woodpecker Show is an animated television series based on the original cartoon by Walter Lantz, produced by Universal Cartoon Studios and aired from 1999 until 2002 on Fox Kids (United States) and BBC (UK). It is an updated version of The Woody Woodpecker Show with characters from the classic series and a few new ones appearing in their own segments.
Each 22-minute episode consists of three segments, two featuring Woody Woodpecker (or his fellow woodpecker co-stars) and one starring Chilly Willy. Each have their own supporting casts.
- Woody Woodpecker (voiced by Billy West) - In this modern update, Woody Woodpecker lives in a treehouse overlooking an apartment building in the city. He is frequently portrayed as a lazy moocher, often looking for ways to get by without lifting a finger. This does not endear him to his rivals, but Woody doesn't take their resistance lightly.
- Wally Walrus (Billy West) - A Swedish walrus who lives in the apartment Woody's treehouse overlooks. Woody frequently mooches him for food and generally proves to be a nuisance for him.
- Mrs. Meany (Andrea Martin) - The landlord who owns the apartment building and the tree that Wally and Woody live on. She is another of Woody's frequent adversaries.
- Buzz Buzzard (Mark Hamill) - A sleazy vulture who is always concocting scams and cons on Woody, though Woody frequently outsmarts him. In this series, Buzz often operates with a sidekick named Tweaky Da Lackey.
- Winnie Woodpecker (B.J. Ward) - A female woodpecker who tends to get into her own misadventures. She has a more dignified persona than Woody's. Unlike the original series, Winnie and Woody are best friends instead of boyfriend and girlfriend.
- Knothead (E.G. Daily) and Splinter (Nika Futterman) - Woody's nephew and niece, who can't help but give their uncle (and anybody else) a hard time.
- Chilly Willy - A silent penguin who lives in the Arctic, though he frequently dreams of living someplace warm like tropical islands and resort beaches. Despite his innocent demeanor, Willy is quite the troublemaker.
- Smeadly (Billy West) - A hound dog that is frequently at odds with Chilly Willy, though usually portrayed as more of an authority figure than an antagonist. He is very easygoing and generally does not break his calm demeanor, but Willy always pushes Smeadly's patience to the breaking point.
- Major Bull (Kevin Michael Richardson) and Sgt. Hogwash (Blake Clark) - Military officers who operate in a government base, who are plagued by Willy's mischievousness and frequent habit of sneaking into their base.
- Maxie the Polar Bear (Rob Paulsen) - One of Willy's friends, though he only makes a few appearances in this series.
