Pirate fun with Woody, Buzz and Wally
1 August 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Was very fond of Woody Woodpecker and his cartoons as a child. Still get much enjoyment out of them now as a young adult, even if there are more interesting in personality cartoon characters and better overall cartoons.

That is in no way knocking Woody, because many of his cartoons are a lot of fun to watch and more and also still like him a lot as a character. He is a lot of fun here and never comes over too much of a jerk, one identifies with his quest in a way. Wally Walrus has always been a great supporting character and the chemistry with Woody is inspired, though he is underused and reduced to the role of the town magistrate, my one slight fault with 'Buccaneer Woodpecker' because Wally deserves better than that.

'Buccaneer Woodpecker' sees his opponent being actually Buzz Buzzard and he proves to be a formidable and entertaining one, his personality is getting stronger all the time and his chemistry with Woody (the premise helps) sparkles more than seen before.

As ever, the animation is great. The characters are well drawn, but even better are the rich colours, meticulously detailed backgrounds and smooth backgrounds.

Music is another strength here. It's characterful, lushly orchestrated and is not only dynamic with the action it even enhances it. The whole cartoon goes at a snappy pace, especially in the second half, and there are some very well-timed and extremely funny gags.

Overall, rollicking pirate fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
