Was originally slated to premiere in November of 1998 before being pushed to May of 1999.
Woody's design on this show is like his 1944-1949 design which was last used in Drooler's Delight (1949). This design is what Universal started using on merchandise after retiring the 1950's design in 1997.
It was created by well-known animator Bob Jaques. Jaques directed the first 13 episodes alongside Alan Zaslove, until the 14th episode, where Zaslove becomes the sole director until the end of the series.
Each episode consists of three segments, two featuring Woody Woodpecker, and one starring Chilly Willy or Woody's fellow woodpecker co-stars, Winnie Woodpecker and Knothead & Splinter.
In this series Wally Walrus has caucasian skin. In all of his appearances in theatrical cartoons, he was brown skinned like a real walrus.
Winnie Woodpecker becomes a prominent character in this series. In the original theatrical cartoons, Winnie Woodpecker only appeared in one cartoon, Real Gone Woody (1954)
In this cartoon series, Winnie Woodpecker was redesigned to look almost exactly like Woody did from 1950 until 1972, the obvious differences being that she was a female woodpecker, wears a skirt, and has blue eyes.
On this series, Buzz Buzzard resembles like his 40's design seen in Wet Blanket Policy (1948), Wild and Woody! (1948) and Drooler's Delight (1949) with a feathery look on his head.
The design for Smedley, the dawg with the southern drawl that Chilly Willy hassles, is based on the one in his first few appearances.
In this series, Woody lives in a tree house in Ms. Meany's yard. Woody frequently annoys Ms. Meany's neighbor Wally Walrus.
