New Content to Debut on Woody Woodpecker Youtube Channel


According to a recent announcement, a new batch of content will be debuting on the official Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, and English Youtube channels for Walter Lantz’ iconic Woody Woodpecker cartoons.

Slated for December, the new content will come from Universal Pictures International and Universal 1440 Entertainment and will be an effective revival of the franchise, which ended its classic run 46 years ago, with a brief three-season modern resurgence that ended 16 years ago. The Youtube channels, on the other hand, launched a year ago and will now feature new content for a new generation of fans.

When we launched Woody Woodpecker on YouTube in 2017, the channels immediately resonated and the dedicated Portuguese channel for Brazil was a breakout hit; we knew there was a unique opportunity to do more with this favorite, classic character,” said Rob Bell, EVP, International New Media, NBCUniversal Global Distribution. “With the Brazilian channel organically attracting over 2 million subscribers and the Spanish channel over 700,00 subscribers coupled with extremely high engagement and watch time – it was clear there was an appetite to build upon the strength of the existing IP and a strategic opportunity for us to create original content.”

The new content headed to the Woody Woodpecker YouTube channels will also feature other classic Lantz characters, including Winnie, Buzz Buzzard, Wally Walrus, Andy Panda, Chilly Willy, Splinter and Knothead, across 10 marvelously mischievous five-minute episodes.
