Like most Woody Woodpecker shows, this series played all new versions of cartoons of the classic characters, including Chilly Willy, Smedley, and Dapper Denver Dooley. Woody lives in a tree in Wally's yard; always asking for food, fun, and mischief. In some episodes he is joined by his niece and nephew Splinter and Knothead. The two of them usually wind up tormenting Buzz Buzzard when his plans of deceit and deception backfire. Woody was also joined by characters who had few appearances in the original Woody Woodpecker cartoons including Winnie Woodpecker, Ms. Meany and Tweaky Da Lackey.
