While travelling along a woodland highway, Woody's car runs out of gas. He intends to get some more by siphoning some from a nearby car, not realizing the car belongs to policeman Wally Walrus who immediately chases the bird. Woody temporarily eludes Wally by disguising himself as a gas station attendant who fills Wally's car to the brim with water! When Woody's disguise is uncovered, the two duel with grease guns. Woody, of course, cheats until he makes the mistake of escaping onto a grease rack at which point he slips backward into a vise which Wally uses to trap him!Written by

After being caught stealing gas by Wally Walrus, Woody is able to make a clean getaway with his car. However, he was only able to sneak two mouthfuls of gas beforehand, which would not be enough to last in a long car chase. See more »
Woody Woodpecker's car may have run out of gas, but the duo of Woody and Wally Walrus has not
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. Always have gotten much enjoyment out of Woody and Wally Walrus' cartoons and their chemistry together. Of which 'Well Oiled' is one of their best, one that sees Woody and Wally outwit each other with hilarious results, a refreshing rarity of Woody being punished and where one roots for Wally but doesn't see Woody as a jerk.
While there are more interesting characters, Woody is an amusing character and never too obnoxious. His interplay with Wally is truly inspired, while Wally is incredibly funny here especially in the latter parts.
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 writing is amusing and chuckle-worthy enough and the gags are well-timed and often hilarious, even with a more violent tone.
The voice acting is solid.
On the whole, one of Woody and Wally's best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
