1. Woody the Woodpecker
Woody Woodpecker is an animated cartoon character, an anthropomorphic acorn woodpecker who appeared in theatrical short films produced by the Walter Lantz animation studio and distributed by Universal Pictures. Though not the first of the screwball characters that became popular in the 1940s, Woody is perhaps the most indicative of the type.
Woody was created in 1940 by storyboard artist Ben “Bugs” Hardaway, who had previously laid the groundwork for two other screwball characters, Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, at the Warner Bros. cartoon studio in the late 1930s. Woody’s character and design would evolve over the years, from an insane bird with an unusually garish design to a more refined looking and acting character in the vein of the later Chuck Jones version of Bugs Bunny. Woody was originally voiced by prolific voice actor Mel Blanc, who was succeeded by Ben Hardaway and later by Grace Stafford, wife of Walter Lantz.
2. Chip N’ Dale
Chip and Dale are a pair of cunning and mischievous chipmunks that made their debut in 1943’s Private Pluto. Although the duo have similar looks and rarely appear separately, they each have distinct personalities and a few distinguishing physical features.
Chip can be identified by his small black “chocolate chip” nose and his joined front teeth, whereas Dale has a larger red nose, two adjacent front teeth and a tuft of hair on his head. Chip is also usually the more logical, positive, and cunning of the two, with Dale being the less intelligent.
