PlotEdit

Woody violates rules not to go over the falls in a barrel. The park ranger tries to prevent Woody from doing it. Woody finds a barrel and goes in falls with it. The park ranger jumps in and kicks Woody out, but he then notices he's breaking his own rules. The people yell :HOORAY! while he goes down. The second time, Woody disguises the barrel as a plump woman. The ranger thinks it's a real woman. But he sees through the disguise. He throws the barrel into the falls with him in it. He again falls down the falls in a barrel but this time when the people cheer, he says: OH, SHUT UP! This time takes his district with him. They take Woody's barrel with the ranger in it and send it to North Pole. The ranger goes by sled to Chinese caricatures carrying him. When he arrives in the US, he and his district all float down the falls. The last time the ranger goes down the falls, Woody dressed up as a police officer gives him a ticket for going down the falls in barrel leaving him to say: “Going down the falls in a barrel ey?” Then he does his famous laugh. The title is a pun on Niagara Falls.

CensorshipEdit

  • Originally, on the first airing on The Woody Woodpecker Show, the scene where the ranger was with the Eskimos and Chinese people were cut to him arriving in America, but on reruns it played uncut.
