Woodpecker from Mars is the 69th animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on July 2, 1956, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal International.
A children television host chooses an audience member to test a phony rocket. He chooses Woody, who successfully gets prizes for landing it safely. He earns a life supply of Zippo Whip, a scooter, a toy laser gun, and a space helmet. Woody goes off in the city shooting his gun at people. The citizens are horrified of Woody, thinking he is a genuine "spaceman".
That afternoon, scientists study Woody the "spaceman". The scientist takes a feather from Woody's tail and says: "The spaceman has feathers?" The scientist then takes shockers and electrifies Woody. The second time the scientist tries to shock him, he kicks the shockers back on the scientist. The scientists says: "The spaceman's crazy!!!" Woody is sent to Mars and the real aliens think he is a spaceman. Woody is put in a rocket and he then says: "Here we go again folks!"
