Spinning Woody

Woody Woodpecker’s attention is arrested by a croaking owl saying “Who sez so?” These are consecutive frames as Woody turns 360 degrees. I imagine outlines are used to give the character less weight and make the spin look faster.

This is from Woody’s first starring cartoon in 1941 (his debut was in an Andy Panda cartoon). Alex Lovy and Les Kline get the animation credits. Woody is voiced by Mel Blanc and the owl is Danny Webb.


  1. Les Kline does this sequence with Woody and the owl (Thad K. told me that YEARS ago --)

  2. I presume Lantz directed this himself.SC
