Cartune Short Fair Today
Cartune Short Scrub Me Mama with a Boogie Beat In the public domain. This cartoon has been withheld from distribution by Universal since 1949 due to its portrayal of African-Americans. The decision was made after a strong objection was raised by the NAACP upon the short's reissue in 1948. The entire episode was a shock to Lantz who prided himself on avoiding problems with the censors. He repeatedly stated that his cartoons were never meant to offend anyone. After the 1948 decision, Lantz made a major effort to make sure that offensive caricatures of any racial or ethnic group would never appear in his cartoons again. He also personally made sure that Scrub Me Mama would never be distributed on television.

Series Film Notes
Swing Simphony The Greatest Man in Siam The first appearance of Pat Matthews' shapely dancing girl, referred to as "Miss X" by the model sheets for this cartoon.
Woody Woodpecker The Barber of Seville The first appearance of Ben Hardaway as the voice of Woody. The first cartoon to use the famous opening where Woody pops out of a tree stump, animated by Emery Hawkins. The first cartoon to feature a new streamlined version of Woody. He is now cuter and less rough and wild. The last appearance of Woody with green eyes until Musical Moments from Chopin (1947).
Swing Symphony Jungle Jive This cartoon contains the last known recording by pianist, Bob Zurke. He died a month after recording the soundtrack for this cartoon in 1942.
Andy Panda Fish Fry
Swing Symphony Abou Ben Boogie The second and final appearance of "Miss X." Some animation of "Miss X" by Pat Matthews, deemed "too sexy," was cropped out of Castle Films home use prints.
Woody Woodpecker The Beach Nut The first appearance of Woody with blue eyes, the eye color would revert to green in 1947. The first appearance of Wally Walrus.
Woody Woodpecker Ski for Two This cartoon is perhaps best known for the sequence (animated by Dick Lundy) of Woody skiing and singing the melody The Sleigh (a la Russe) (written in 1926 by Richard Kountz and Ivor Tchervanow). According to the memoirs of director Shamus Culhane, the composition was used in the cartoon with the belief that it was in the public domain. However, near the short's completion, it was discovered that the tune was actually still under copyright. Instead of having the sequence re-edited to a new song, Lantz sent a fifty dollar offer to the publishing firm of The Sleigh for its use in the film. They sent a letter back stating that they would only accept nothing less than a hundred dollars, an amount that Lantz gladly paid.
Andy Panda The Painter and the Pointer This cartoon features a very different design of Andy Panda. Apparently, it failed to gain favor with audiences and was never used again for any subsequent releases. Andy's usual happy-go-lucky personality seems to have changed here as well. By his behavior, the "new Andy" could easily pass as Andy's evil twin brother.

1945Edit

Woody Woodpecker Chew-Chew Baby

Woody Woodpecker Wet Blanket Policy The first appearance of Buzz Buzzard. The first cartoon to feature The Woody Woodpecker Song. The Woody Woodpecker Song became a huge hit in June 1948 (selling over 250,000 records within ten days of release). In response to the tune's popularity, Lantz rushed the song into this cartoon (which was released in August 1948). This explains why the action and music don't really match up for the first minute or so into the film. The Woody Woodpecker Song was originally recorded by Kay Kyser and his Orchestra. The vocals were provided by Gloria Wood and Harry Babbit, who also provide the vocals for the version heard in this cartoon. This cartoon has the honor of being the only cartoon short ever to be nominated for an Oscar for "Best Song" (for The Woody Woodpecker Song).

The only official appearance of Miranda Panda though she would have a cameo appearance in The Woody Woodpecker Polka.
Woody Woodpecker Drooler's Delight The final musical score by Darrell Calker. Clarence Wheeler would take over starting in 1951. The final Walter Lantz cartoon released through United Artists. The last time Ben Hardway would provide the voice for Woody. Grace Stafford would begin to voice Woody regularly in 1953 (while providing his laugh in 1951-52 releases).

1951Edit

Series Film Notes
Woody Woodpecker Puny Express The first musical score by Clarence Wheeler . The first Walter Lantz cartoon to be released through Universal Studios since 1947. Grace Stafford, Lantz's wife and the future permanent voice of the woodpecker, provides Woody's trademark laugh for the first time in this cartoon. It can be heard at the beginning and end. Oddly, the original Mel Blanc Woody laugh can be heard at one point during the short as well. When his studio reopened, Lantz felt that Woody ought to be streamlined again. Woody's top knot would now be pushed forward, his beak would curve up slighly, and he would also became shorter. Lantz felt that Woody's size played an important role in the films, as he observed that audiences were more inclined to empathize with the "little guy" over the "big bully."

Woody Woodpecker Destination Meatball This cartoon's title is a play on the 1950 George Pal feature Destination Moon, which also featured Woody Woodpecker.

1952Edit

Series Film Notes
Woody Woodpecker Born to Peck
Woody Woodpecker Stage Hoax This cartoon marks the first time Grace Stafford provided extensive dialouge for Woody (in all previous cartoons, she merely provided his laugh). However, it should be noted that she is doing the voice of Woody dressed as a woman, not Woody's "normal" voice.

Series Film Notes
Woody Woodpecker Socko in Morocco
Sugarfoot A Horse's Tale The first Sugarfoot cartoon.
Woody Woodpecker Alley to Bali
N/A Dig That Dog Even though Cuddles the Great Dane was only featured in this one cartoon, he appeared on merchandise including drinking glasses and coloring books. Lantz, a great dane owner himself, was probably fond of this cartoon and the character. Dig That Dog and Broadway Bow Wow's were made independently by the Grantray studio. Grantray (Lawrence) was of course Grant Simmons and Ray Patterson's post-MGM studio. Lantz gave them the go-ahead to write and direct several theatrical cartoons for him. There was no need for them to hire their own music director or background people since Lantz people needed the work. Walter Lantz went so far as to have have a complete budget worked out for every facet of these two cartoons, but was shrewd enough to be sure he obtained ownership of them outright.

Miscellanous ShortsEdit

The following is a list of miscellaneous works produced by or related to Walter Lantz and the Walter Lantz studio. These include Lantz's earliest works at the Bray Studios, unreleased cartoons, films produced for the government, made-for-TV shorts, and other odds and ends.

Coca-Cola AdvertismentsEdit

In 1948, Walter Lantz was approached by the Coca-Cola Company to produce animated theatrical advertisements for their popular soft drink. Lantz agreed and produced twelve of them. Released throughout 1949, they run about one to two minutes each. Unfortunately, the Lantz studio closed and production of these films ceased. After the studio reopened in 1950, the Coca-Cola Company again approached Lantz and eight more theatrical advertisements were produced and released in 1953, again running about one to two minutes each. Today all of these shorts are in the public domain.
