Woody Woodpecker used to be very popular. There are a lot of cartoon characters now so this character may not be on top of people’s lists when it comes to their favorite. It cannot be denied, however, that this is one of the characters that signified the golden age of animation in America.

This character is actually based from the Pileated Woodpecker. This is a type of bird that is usually seen in Eastern North America but can also be found in some areas of the Pacific Coast and Canada. When pileated habits lose their eggs because of falling, they usually have to transfer places so that they will feel more protected.

There are a lot of people who are familiar with Woody Woodpecker as one of the characters that were created during the popularity of American animation. This bird is considered to be a rascal but is also very entertaining. From the name of the character, you can already guess that this is inspired by a woodpecker but what type of woodpecker is the actual inspiration for this?

It is the Pileated Woodpecker. Woody Woodpecker had a television show in the past and people still look for reruns from time to time. There are some movies about this character as well. It is one of the classic characters that people remember when they want to remember their younger years.
