Ballyhooey is the 99th animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on April 20, 1960, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal International.


Ballyhooey was Alex Lovy's final effort as director on a Woody short, as he would later leave Lantz for Hanna Barbera. He was replaced by Jack Hannah, a former Disney veteran behind the Donald Duck & Chip 'n' Dale cartoons.
