The Walter Lantz studio through a good portion of the 1940s liked outline drawings. In previous posts, we’ve pointed out several Woody Woodpecker cartoons that feature them. Here’s another example. This one is from Woody Woodpecker, the first cartoon starring the character after his appearance in Knock Knock.
At one point, the psychiatrist fox grabs Woody by the neck and shakes him a bit. Note how Woody’s expression changes when he realises he’s being grabbed around the neck. I’ve only included a few of the outline drawings.
Alex Lovy and Ray Fahringer get the animation credits on this cartoon, with Mel Blanc providing voices for Woody and the doctor.
