Chew-Chew Baby is the 13th animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on February 5, 1945, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal Pictures.


Woody manages to get himself evicted from a boarding house run by proprietor Wally Walrus. Subsequently, the lonely walrus runs an ad in the local newspaper looking for a sweetheart. Woody reads this and decides to respond to the ad by dressing in drag. The woodpecker then arrives at Wally's place and eats him out of house and home.
