I'm keeping the Lantz model sheets going with their biggest star. Here's Woody and the various designs he went through in the 1940's. It's a shame that Universal has no interest in promoting Woody. He's without a doubt one of the greatest cartoon characters created. I remember coming home from school and the first thing I would do would be to flip on the TV and watch Popeye and then Woody, all the way through high school. Woody was one of the biggest cartoon stars of the 40's, how many big bands recorded the "Woody Woodpecker Song"? I've got more versions of it that I care to listen to. The cartoons by directed by Shamus Culhane and Dick Lundy are my personal favorites. Dick Lundy's are particularly pleasing to the eye and some great animators worked on those cartoons. Check out Thad's blog, he's the only person who seems to focus much attention on the cartoons made at Lantz.
