Guess Who....That Funny Bird

All of you who, when young or even now, remember this loony character who went into mischievious antics at tha drop of a feather. Woody is also famous for that one of a kind laugh, which is often immitated but never ever has anyone been able to duplicate it. I used to watch Woody Woodpecker as a kid in Kuwait, but can't ever remember seeing an episode since we moved back to India. I must protest to Cartoon Network. My two nephews watch all these nonsense cartoons that couldn't hold a candle to the red & blue bird. There have been very few cartoons in the last decade or so that are worth watching. I admit that I still like to see cartoon even at the age of 29 (although that is getting lesser & lesser every passing month). Sometimes there is nothing like a good cartoon to bring back traces of your childhood & innocense and can banish all your adult worries & stress, even if only for an hour or so.

One of my favourite episodes of Woody Woodpecker is the one in which he goes to a restaunrant for lunch. The waiter there (a dog??) see in the paper that there is $100,000 reward for the capture of a woodpecker. He dreams of the money, motorcars & women. So he sets out to capture our bird friend. When the waiter approaches, Woody asks "Can I have a Menu?". "A menu?" asks the waiter, to which Woody replies "Yeah, M-E-N Men, Y-O-U, You. MENU!!". Simpley hillarious and typical Woody. My sister & I used to mimic this dialogue a lot when we were much younger.....we don't do that anymore.
