Woody Woodpecker is the first animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on July 7, 1941, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal Pictures.
The working title of this cartoon is 'Cracked Nut'.
The inhabitants of the forest that Woody Woodpecker (Mel Blanc) lives in have started spreading the word that Woody is crazy, due to all of his screwball antics. After telling him (and many others) this several times, Woody also begins to question his sanity. So he goes to a psychiatrist, a fox named Dr. Horace N. Buggy, who has a Scottish accent (Blanc), only to find that the doctor may be more cracked than the woodpecker himself.
When aired in The Woody Woodpecker Show the animals' dialogue have been dubbed; with 'crazy' dubbed as 'wacky'.
