Woody Woodpecker was my favorite cartoon as a child. I loved and still do his iconic laugh. It's one of those things when you hear a woodpecker or someone mentions a woodpecker, you just have to do the laugh!
Woody was created in 1940 by Walter Lantz. His first television appearance was in the Knock Knock short film. I enjoy watching this film every now and then as you can always count on a good laugh from it!
Woody really evolved over the years, now he isn't really "screwball" looking!
