Square Shootin' Square is the 63rd animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on September 26, 1955, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal International.
In the Old West, Dapper Denver Dooley robs the Third National Bank and escapes on horseback from a sheriff's posse. He hides the stolen money in a tree where Woody Woodpecker is living. Dooley tries to get it back but Woody pulls some gags to prevent it. Dooley is finally arrested and goes crazy at the end.
Square Shootin' Square marks Dapper Denver Dooley's first appearance, voiced by Dal McKennon. Eventually, Dooley would replace Buzz Buzzard, and in turn, be replaced by Gabby Gator, as Woody's main antagonist in the series.
