Pierre Bear runs a bowling ball factory in the great North. Pierre mistakenly chops down Woody's treehouse and converts it into a bowling ball. Despite this, Woody decides to still reside in it, and goes about trying to outwit the bear. Pierre uses a water hose, air pump, deep freeze and even hocus-pocus to evict the tree's tenant, but all he gets are knotted bowler's fingers.
According to the original order, After the Ball may have been the first Woody Woodpecker film that featured a shorter Woody with black dots for eyes. The original production number for After the Ball is U-52, while the previous film, The Tree Medic is U-53.
