Storyline

Woody Woodpecker visits Niagara Falls---on the Canadian and American side both, according to some viewers---and asks about going over the famous falls in a barrel which the guard tells him it is forbidden, which immediately makes Woody decide to do it, anyway. Woody uses everything BUT a ladder in his attempts, and the guard prevents him going over several times, but the guard winds up in a barrel and goes over himself. Woody, dressed as a policeman, is awaiting him at the bottom to give him a ticket for breaking the law. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

By far, one of the most hysterical Woody episodes ever.
25 November 2006 | by Tubular_BellSee all my reviews

Running gags have been a frequent feature in Woody Woodpecher shorts from this age, and this is the one that does it best. On this one, Woody visits the famous Niagara Falls, where he has the wicked idea of riding down the falls on a barrel, while the loyal Mountie tries to stop him. Of course, Woddy doesn't give up easily, and his constant attempts all end up with the Mountie going down the falls instead.

The idea itself might sound a bit generic, but the wacky twists added to the story make it stand out from the rest. In particular, the yellow coat tourists cheering every time the unlucky Mountie goes down the falls is worth the price of admission already. Other hilarious moments involve the Woody disguising the barrel as a woman, and the Mountie eventually mistaking an actual woman for a barrel; the unfortunate man being sent, mistakingly, to the North Pole, and hitchhiking his way back to the falls ("March!"); and an actual valve that dries up the falls completely. Woody fans cannot go without this one. A classic and a prime example of the wicked humour of Woody Woodpecker.
