Woody Woodpecker Arrives on DVD, Digital and On Demand on February 6

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the movie is. There is ridiculousness, as Woody is Woody- mayhem, and chaos- it wouldn’t be a Woody Woodpecker movie without his silly antics and laugh. This movie has heart and the main characters learn things and actually grow. My son was overly into this movie and laughed a lot at it. He thought it was super funny and I loved that it entertained him.

    Cartoons like this are hard to find for grandson. So many are filled with such loud obtrusive annoying things. Wish there were more like this
