Doin' the Dingledong

Professor Dingledong tries to grab Woody Woodpecker in “Private Eye Pooch” (released in 1955). Great brush strokes. These are consecutive frames.

It’s Dingledong’s first appearance and the professor has Dal McKennon’s familiar German dialect. Animation in this short is by Bob Bentley, Herman Cohen, and Gil Turner.


  1. Who directed this, Yowp (Dal McKennon also used that dialect for "Chicken Feed", 1961`-62, Gumby short..)SC

  2. Smith's early WOODY shorts are pretty amusing, IMO - this one was always one of my favorites ever since I saw it in an old KIDDIERAMA booth in the 1970s!
