It is an updated version of The Woody Woodpecker Show with characters from the original series and a few new ones appearing in their own segments, in a manner similar to the original Looney Tunes shorts. Each 22-minute 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, which lasted until the third season). Each one have their own supporting casts.

Cast and charactersEdit

Woody WoodpeckerEdit

  • Woody Woodpecker (Billy West) - A mischievous pileated woodpecker who lives in a treehouse overlooking an apartment building in the big city. His personality mirrors Tom Sawyer, a lazy and crazy moocher, often looking for ways to get by without lifting a finger. This does not endear him to his rivals, but Woody doesn't take their resistance lightly. His father is Scottish, and Woody is proud of his Scottish heritage.
  • Buzz Buzzard (Mark Hamill) - A sleazy common buzzard who is always concocting scams and cons on Woody and Winnie, though the woodpeckers frequently outsmart him.
  • Wally Walrus (Billy West) - A Swedish walrus who lives in the apartment Woody's treehouse overlooks. He is one of Woody's frequent adversaries, though him being antagonistic through snobbishness is about as frequent as Woody being a nuisance in search of food or mischief.
  • Miss Meany (Andrea Martin) - The grouchy landlady who owns the apartment complex where Wally lives and Woody overlooks. She is one of Woody's frequent adversaries, and generally more mean-spirited than Wally. Often portrayed as a hard worker who takes her job seriously and respects those in authority.
  • Winnie Woodpecker (B. J. Ward) - A female pileated woodpecker and Woody's best friend who tends to get into her own misadventures. She has a more dignified persona than Woody's.
  • Knothead (Elizabeth Daily) and Splinter (Nika Futterman) - Woody and Winnie's nephew and niece, respectively, a pair of young pileated woodpeckers who can't help but give to their uncle (and anybody else) a hard time.
  • Tweakey Da Lackey (Mark Hamill) - A domestic canary who is usually Buzz's henchman, often reluctant about it.

Chilly WillyEdit

  • Chilly Willy (mute) - A voiceless penguin who lives in Antarctica, his misadventures result from his constant endeavors to fill his empty stomach and/or find relief from the cold. Despite his innocent demeanor, Chilly is quite the troublemaker.
  • Smedley (Billy West) - A hound dog that is frequently at odds with Chilly, though usually portrayed as more an authority figure than an antagonist. He is very easygoing and generally does not break his calm demeanor, but Chilly always pushes Smedley's patience to the breaking point.
  • Chilly Lilly (mute) - A female penguin who is the Chilly Willy's girlfriend and appears in the episode Chilly Lilly.
  • Maxie The Polar Bear (Rob Paulsen) - A polar bear who is one of Chilly's friends. He makes a few appearances on Chilly's segments.
  • Sgt. Hogwash (Blake Clark) - A pig military officer who operates in a government base in the Antarctic, and is plagued by Chilly's mischievousness.
  • Major Bull (Kevin Michael Richardson) - A bull who is Hogwash's superior.

Additional voicesEdit

  • Dr. Doug Nutts (Billy West) - A physician who is impersonating Don Knotts. He appears in the episode Woody And The Termite.
  • Mother Nature (B.J. Ward) - A fairy who usually gets after Woody for being too lazy to fulfill his role in nature. She appears in the episodes "Woody And The Termite", "Downsized Woody", "Whistle Stop Woody", and "Teacher's Pet". In "Teacher's Pet" her appearance is different then the three prior episodes, she retains her original pre-Teacher's Pet appearance in Crazy Castle 5.
  • Nicky Woodpecker (Tim Curry) - A high society pileated woodpecker thief who appears in the episode Eenie, Meany, Out You Go.
  • Woody Woodpecker's Father (Corey Burton) - A pileated woodpecker who is the father of Woody.
  • Caveman Woodpecker (Charlie Adler) - A caveman who is a woodpecker.
  • Lester The Termite (Pamela Adlon) - A termite who appears in the episode Woody And The Termite.
  • Judge (Billy West) - A judge who appears in the episode Stage Fright and condemns Buzz and Tweakey.
  • Willy Walrus (Rob Paulsen) - a young walrus who appears in the episode Stuck On You.
  • Cupid (Billy West) - A cupid who appears in the episode Date With Destiny.
  • Woodrow Woodpecker (Charlie Adler) - A nerdy woodpecker who appears in Teacher's Pet.
