Woozy Woody

Woody Woodpecker does battle with a chicken in the Dick Lundy-directed “Solid Ivory” (1947).

Here are some great drawings of when Woody shakes off the dizziness after being chucked out of the henhouse and is determined to go in and get his cue ball from the chicken. These aren’t all of them but they’ll give you an idea of the scene. The animation’s on ones and twos.

And he gets his birdy butt kicked.

There’s an even better set of drawings near the end of the picture when the dazed chicken moves about in mid-air before taking off after Woody.

Grim Natwick and Hal Mason receive the animation credits.
