The New Woody Woodpecker Show is an American animated television series that was based on the animated film series and others cartoons characters of the same name created by American cartoonist and animator Walter Lantz. It was created by well-known animator Bob Jaques. Jaques directed the first 13 episodes alongside Alan Zaslove, until the 14th episode, where Zaslove becomes the sole director until the end of the series. It was produced by Universal Cartoon Studios and aired on Saturdays from May 8, 1999 until July 27, 2002 on Fox's Fox Kids in the United States. The show aired on YTV in Canada, and CBBC in the UK.

It is an updated version of The Woody Woodpecker Show with characters from the original series and a few new ones appearing in their own segments, in a manner similar to the original Looney Tunes shorts. Each 22-minute episode consists of three segments, two featuring Woody Woodpecker, and one starring Chilly Willy (or Woody's fellow woodpecker co-stars, Winnie Woodpecker and Knothead & Splinter, which lasted until the third season). Each one have their own supporting casts.

List of characters[edit]

Woody Woodpecker[edit]

  • Woody Woodpecker (Billy West) – In this modern update, Woody Woodpecker lives in a treehouse overlooking an apartment building in the big 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. His father is Scottish. Woody is proud of his Scottish heritage.
  • 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 (also voiced by Mark Hamill).
  • 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.
  • Miss Meany (Andrea Martin) – The mean landlady who owns the apartment building that Wally and Woody live in. She is another of Woody's frequent adversaries.
  • 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 other incarnations, Winnie and Woody are best friends instead of boyfriend and girlfriend.
  • Knothead (Elizabeth 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[edit]

  • Chilly Willy – A silent penguin who lives in the Antarctic, though he frequently dreams of living someplace warm like tropical islands and resort beaches. Despite his innocent demeanor, Chilly is quite the troublemaker.
  • Smedley (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 Chilly always pushes Smedley'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 Chilly's mischievousness and frequent habit of sneaking into their base.
  • Maxie the Polar Bear (Rob Paulsen) – One of Chilly's friends, though he only makes a few appearances in this series.
