Happy Groundhog Day - Woody Woodpecker Style




Weatherby Groundhog [a forerunner to Punxsutawney Phil] predicts a cold winter and advises all the birds to fly south. Woody Woodpecker however doesn't roll that way and decides to stay but soon regrets it and nearly starves to death. Made in 1941, named Pantry Panic this Woody Woodpecker short portrays the Groundhog as a weather forecaster, although oddly in this case he forecasts the timing of the beginning of winter, not the end of it. This classic gem was done by Alex Lovy and Lester Kline, story by Ben Hardaway and L.E. Elliott, music by Darrell Calker.
