* MagnumOpus: Easily the best and most well known cartoons ever produced by the WalterLantz cartoon studio.

* DorkAge: Pretty much all of the cartoons from 1955 onward, where the animation and art direction not only took a nosedive, but the humor of the cartoons degenerated into boring, witless filler, not helping that Woody got turned into a bland as wheat protagonist. Some even argue the decline began even earlier, right after 1951, when the last Woody cartoon directed by Dick Lundy was made before the Lantz studio was briefly shut down until the next year, but even those cartoons are held in higher esteem than what came from the mid to late 50s and on.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: ''VideoGame/FeriasFrustradasDoPicaPau'' for the SegaGenesis is terrible in many ways. The GBA game ''Woody Woodpecker In Crazy Castle 5'' is a really mediocre game as well.

Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: Mr. Woodpecker, Woody's father, considering "Born to Peck".


Added DiffLines:

** Just to develop, Woody starts as an old Woodpecker who can't peck anymore and he starts remembering everything. When he arrived as an egg, his mom left him and his father. Then, he was born and was a total dick to his dad. Then, he starts aging until he tries suicide. TearJerker doesn't even starts to describe it.

* GeniusBonus / FridgeBrilliance: Woody Woodypecker [[DolledUpInstallment being the star of the video game]] ''Crazy Castle 5'' seems bizarre considering BugsBunny was the star of the previous four games--but when you're familiar with the history of both characters, and know that the "Proto-Bugs" from shorts like "Porky's Hare Hunt" was quite similar in personality to Woody (even having a non-sped up take on his famous laugh) and that both characters were (initially in Woody's case) [[MelBlanc voiced by the same actor]] and that both Woody and the Proto-Bugs had Ben Hardaway on board for them, you could say that things came full circle.

* ScapegoatCreator: Paul J. Smith picks up a lot of flak for the cruddier efforts produced during the 1960s and 1970s. It's debatable how much (if any) of it's deserved; while it's true that Lantz's budgets were pitiful even compared to what the likes of [=DePatie=]-Freleng and [[ChuckJones Sib Tower 12]] were working with at the time, the general consensus tends to be that the cartoons by Lantz's other director in this period, Sid Marcus, were far better than Smith's output. Either Smith was overwhelmed by the combination of budgetary problems and his (allegedly) failing eyesight, or he just plain gave up trying to make anything decent.
