PLAYS ON REGION 1 ONLY. Tried on a few region 2 players, get a Multi region dvd player if you're buying in region 2 territory!

In all on this set you get a whopping 75 cartoons...
1940's Lantz has passed and we now have 50's Woody, which he is in his more permanent look opposed his changing 40's design.
This sets has 45 Woody cartoons picking up from vol 1. The dates span 1952-1958 and our principal director Paul J Smith was budgeted heavily. But... I appreciate these massively nostalgic cartoons. They're well presented, they have some comic value in them still to this day. Some people prefer the 1940's woody, but that would be down to pure taste.

You get plenty of Non-woody cartoons produced from 1930-1960 as well, like Chilly Willy, Andy Panda, The Cartunes and now owned by Disney, Oswald The Lucky Rabbit which make's very varied viewing giving Lantz and his studio a wider birth than he's ever had on a media release.
You get some absolute gem's on this set and some cartoons are in Black and white(In case there's a problem with that, there's only a few) and as you watch the Non-Woody cartoons, you'll see that Lantz really was inspired by Disney and Warners Looney Tunes. Andy Panda has a dog, Milo who is the spit of Pluto, "A Haunting We Will Go" has all the characteristics of a Disney cartoon. - But it all make's for charming viewing and you appreciate the finer viewings of this set.
For any Oswald fan's, A long-lost colour Oswald with his on screen girlfriend Fanny, Springtime Serenade, is featured on this set too. This set contains some mildly un-pc material, nothing outrageous (Not that I get offended by cartoons obviously) but in case you do, there is some mild stereotyping.

This set has some rare 30's cartoons and super rare 40's cartoons.

It's the Woody We Remember and Love -- Now We Want An All-Oswald Set! 12 April 2008
By Biryanifan - Published on Amazon.com
"If Woody had gone straight to the police, this would NEVER have happened..." (from BUNCO BUSTERS)

I share some fans' viewpoint that the 1940s Woody starring vehicles are the best. But many Woody viewers appreciate the 1950s Woody shorts -- the body of this collection -- for other reasons. These are the Woody shorts from which generations of nostalgia come.
"The story you are about to see is a big fat lie..." "Now I've gotcha, Chief Charlie Horse!" "YAAAAAY!" "Make with them keys, Maestro, and don't stop!" Face it: you remember these beloved Woody cliches even if you no longer recall the specific cartoons (UNDER THE COUNTER SPY, CHIEF CHARLIE HORSE, NIAGARA FOOLS, CONVICT CONCERTO) from which they come. You're getting them. All of them.

And that's not even starting on the supporting features, a mini-anthology of highly inspired choices. Andy Panda's MOUSIE COME HOME envisions codependence in crazed cartoon form; Chilly Willy's HALF-BAKED ALASKA has its unforgettable patter routine ("More butter? More syrup?"); and THE HAMS THAT COULDN'T BE CURED is a hot jazz Three Little Pigs send-up.
Finally there's Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, the star Walter Lantz inherited from an earlier (1927-28) Walt Disney/Ub Iwerks regime at Universal. Disney reacquired some rights to Oswald in 2006; last year saw a selection released in their Walt Disney Treasures line. But Universal retained rights to its own Oswald material, and Woody Vol. 2 brings us another small, tempting quintet.
The inventive, vital black and white classics are a fascinatingly different viewing experience from anything else on this box, as wannabe hero Oswald is smacked by Tex Avery's earliest gags. A long-lost color Oswald featuring girlfriend Fanny, SPRINGTIME SERENADE, is here too.

With new Oswald dolls and merchandise now available in stores, one can only hope Universal will tie in by taking the next step -- to release a multi-volume disc set on the Woody model, but with Oswald as the main character. From CHILLY CON CARMEN's pre-Betty Boop hooch dance to the cyborg T-Rex of STONE AGE, from the impossible ocean tricks of PERMANENT WAVE to Oswald's surrealist, pre-Wackyland adventures on MARS, there are dozens of these classics crying for a release.
Throw in a few pre-Lantz Oswalds as extras, and we're so there.

Buy this for the "Friends" portion, the 1950's Woody's are starting to slip. 31 Jan. 2008
By Paul J. Mular - Published on Amazon.com
This set will have 45 Woody Woodpecker Cartoons spanning from 1952-1958. The trouble is that director Paul J. Smith (boo) was only interested in bringing the cartoons in under budget, creativity was not an issue for him. He started taking over Woody in 1955 and the cartoons started to became mediocre.

The GOOD NEWS is that there will also be non-Smith Woodys and 30 Walter Lantz non-Woody cartoons produced from 1930-1960 in this set, and these classics will be well worth getting this for! With DVDs you can just skip over the Paul J. Smith clunkers and cue the menu to these.

The Classic Cartoons will include these new-to-DVD titles:
SHE DONE HIM RIGHT (1933) w/Pooch The Pup B&W
FIVE AND DIME (1933) w/Oswald Rabbit B&W
WAX WORKS (1934) w/Oswald Rabbit B&W
SPRINGTIME SERENADE (1935)
A-HAUNTING WE WILL GO (1939)
FAIR TODAY (1941)
BOOGIE WOOGIE MAN (1943) A Swing Symphony
THE PAINTER AND THE POINTER (1944) w/ Andy Panda
+ 22 more!

After watching the B&W cartoons on disc 1, I want to add that I am surprised at how well the Lantz studio imitaded other studios.
Take "SHE DONE HIM RIGHT", if you did not see the production credits you would swear that you were watching a 1933 Max Fleischer Betty Boop cartoon.
"A HAUNTING WE WILL GO" may first remind you of a Disney cartoon, but with the racist "Lil' Eightball" starring character it reminds me more of the MGM/Harmon-Ising "BOSKO IN A HAUNTED HOUSE" cartoon.

The real interesting surprise is the last Oswald presented on this disc, "THE PUPPET SHOW". This strangely combines live puppets with an Animated Oswald as the puppeteer. At first I thought he was added to an existing puppet short, but as the film goes on there is an animated dream sequence of the puppets. Was Universal trying to savce an aborted puppet film project? Was the use of live action puppets a cost-saving device to get the years productions back on budget? Either way, it makes for a nice departure from the standard Lantz cartoons of that time.

"FAIR TODAY" is a weak Tex Avery inspired cartoon, "JOLLY LITTLE ELVES" reminds you of some Leon Slessinger/Warner Brothers cartoons & "CANDY LAND" could be from any studio of that time.

It appears that Lantz did not get a real style of his own until Woody Woodpecker & Andy Panda came on the scene.

It would be hard for me to consider buying a volume 3, but this set is still well worth getting!

This is the Woody Woodpecker I remember. 22 April 2008
By F. Reyes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the Woody Woodpecker I remember from when I was a child in the 80's. I know these episodes are older, but they are the one's I used to watch on the FOX channel when I was little. I love them and they brought back so many memories. My favorite is "Witch Craftey". I remember watching this one with my brother when we were little and we laughed so hard we cried. I was excited to see it in this collection. Though not as funny now as it was when I was a child, it did provide a few laughs, but most important, made me relive my child hood for a little bit.

The "Cute" Woody - the likable Woody 18 Dec. 2010
By Green Manalishi - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is the one I was looking for and the one I grew up on mostly. I was a little disappointed with the first volume as it was all old Woody - i.e. loony crazy Woody with a big beak, wild eyes, and an obnoxious personality to match. That's volume one Woody. Some people actually prefer the old Woody - I never did. I didn't like the original Daffy Duck either. They were just too buffoonish and slapstick - a poor substitute for wit. Volume 1 is still worth picking up - the Chilly Willy episodes are great as are some of the older more obscure cartoons - but the Woody cartoons - blah.

Now to Volume 2. The Woody in these shows actually start to resemble the Woody on the DVD packaging. The cartoons are presented in chronological order which lets you see Woody's shape and character evolve (into a much cuter, more intelligent and likable bird!) and the storylines become more clever and funny as well. I have yet to finish these cartoons but I like where they're going. Give me the 50s Woody over those that came before any day. This is the set I was looking for.

DVD packaging is very well done. For each of the 3 discs, there is a little write up on what was going on behind the scenes at the time and who was doing what. There's a page of explanation for each of the characters: Woody, Andy Panda, Chilly Willy, Wally Walrus, Buzz Buzzard, Knothead and Splinter, Space Mouse.

The episodes selection list is printed inside the box with dates for each episode. There are lots of bonus features (which I haven't watched). And most importantly, there are English SUBTITLES - yes! Also, Spanish and French - voice in English only.

This is probably a better place to start than Vol 1 if you're introducing Woody to someone as he is quite charming here.. You can't really say that about pre-50s Woody.

From the notes:

"Walter Lantz's most popular character was first introduced in the 1940 Andy Panda cartoon Knock, Knock. Originally voiced by Mel Blanc, Woody's best-known voice was Grace Stafford (Mrs Walter Lantz) who took over the role in 1951. Two cartoons featuring Woody were nominated for an Academey Award for the Best Cartoon Short and his theme song was also nominated in the Best Song category.. New cartoons featuring Woody were a fixture in movie theatres from 1940 through 1972, making it the longest running series of cartoons ever produced."

"Cartoon showtime...Here Comes Woody!!" 20 April 2008
By Kevin Wollenweber - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This set proves that there is life in that woodpecker yet!! I bought this, originally, for the "FRIENDS", and believe me, I was not disappointed, with extremely funny one shots like "DIG THAT DOG" and wonderful musical offerings like "PIXIE PICNIC", and there is the ever-adorable Sarah Berner voicing the baby Andy Panda, getting a magic wand mailed to him in "100 PYGMIES AND ANDY PANDA" and still more of those jazzy Swing Symphonies. Such cartoons make me hope for a third volume with, perhaps, the best of the later WOODY cartoons (if the chore isn't that excrutiating), reversing the numbers a little and giving us far more of the "FRIENDS" as there is still so much to be restored and issued in this series, especially if one remembers the Columbia House volumes that preceeded these.

Yet, the one thing that I was amazed about was the fact that I enjoyed the 1950's WOODY WOODPECKER output more than i thought i would, with voice work by Dal McKennon and Daws Butler. "HYPNOTIC HICKS", "WRESTLING WRECKS" and "REAL GONE WOODY" being stand-outs and fond memories from my daily viewings of "THE WOODY WOODPECKER SHOW" back in the day. I even liked "TO CATCH A WOODPECKER", a cartoon that is not only included but whose story board is given narration in one of the behind-the-scenes special features.

If there is a third and final set, we could get more of those strange 1930's titles like "SHE DONE HIM RIGHT", "JOLLY LITTLE ELVES" and "CANDYLAND", all of which are included here. They sometimes resemble the experiments that came from Warner Brothers cartoons of this period (maybe it has something to do with the voice work; in one documentary spoof or newsreel spoof, we even hear the familiar narration that we'd also gotten in Warners titles of this type created by Tex Avery). The Lantz toons of the 1930's can't be entirely confused with the SILLY SYMPHONIES or other one shots as they have a spikier edge, even though they can sometimes seem like direct steals from the earliest Disney musical series. I'm just a sucker for any cartoons from the 1930's. It is an era that isn't seen at all anymore, so why not restore what's left of the source material and give it one last go-round! In the '30's, Walter Lantz was still finding his way, but then I think we can say that about practically any studio, except perhaps for Max Fleischer Productions which had established itself and its humor quite prominently at that time, standing out beyond all others!!

Ah, but I digress... It would also be nice to check out more of the earliest ANDY PANDA shorts like "ANDY PANDA GOES FISHING", "MOUSE TRAPPERS" and "CRAZY HOUSE" which gives old grumpy Papa Panda his comeuppance, although baby Andy is at his best when he, alone, is the focal point of the cartoon. The first three make me wish that Lantz had allowed the baby panda to wander off into little adventures with Mr. Whippletree, a Rochester-like turtle, reluctantly by his side to keep him out of the usual trouble he finds himself in. We have the first and third of these earliest cartoons, thankfully!

One other cartoon that I am utterly delighted is here is "FIVE 'N' DIME", an OSWALD cartoon that has a thoroughly wonderful production number around the popular hit "I Found a Million Dollar Baby (In a Five 'n' Ten Cent Store)". The music and soundtrack of this title is enough to keep you wishing for more of these, and I know there has to be more!!

Yes, there is life in this studio, and I'm glad that these volumes are around to show it off! These first two volumes are testaments to this, and I'm so glad that we now all have access to them.
