why the The Woody Woodpecker Show (1987-1998) isn't in the database?

Hello

I think there are Three versions of this tv show with the same name

1. The Woody Woodpecker Show (1957-1972) aired in ABC and NBC

2. The Woody Woodpecker Show (1987-1998) aired in ABC, NBC and Cartoon Network

3. The Woody Woodpecker Show (2023-present) aired in MeTV (previously known as Woody Woodpecker and Friends)

The 1987 version is different from 1957 version. in this version doesn't have the Walter Lantz segments and have a new animation for intro and bumpers known as Musical Miniatures (not be confused as 1946-1948 series). but this version is kinda obscure and lost media because there are no footage of the cartoons that have aired only intro, bumpers and credits are recovered.

Note: In the Database the poster of the 1957 tv show is the 1987 version.

Woody Woodpecker and Friends

I've done some research outside of IMDb, 
and there doesn't appear to be an actual tv series
called Woody Woodpecker and Friends.

Thanks for your analysis of the various variations of the woodpecker show. I honestly wouldn't do such a thing myself.

Wikipedia (which could be wrong, of course) treats the 1987, 1997 and 2003 versions as the same show, but in reruns.

You mention changes made to them, but if they're superficial enough, it may be more useful for IMDb to consider them altered reruns of the original, rather than as completely new shows.


I'd say that if each episode has the same three theatrical cartoons, but with some new material added, and some old material removed, it's the same show.

It might be best to add information about the three rerun versions to the Alternate Versions section of the series page. You can note the existence of the new bumpers, the Musical Miniatures, etc.

And if you can ever find episode-specific information (such as the song used in a particular Musical Miniature), you can add it to the Alternate Versions section of each episode page.

I'm only familiar with the version of the show that was rerun in the 1970s, so I couldn't say how superficial, or how deep, the changes are in the "reruns."

P.S. The versions you say were aired on ABC and NBC were probably syndicated, which means they could have aired on local ABC, NBC or other affiliates (depending on where you were in the country), but were not directly connected to those networks.

The 1987 version looks like a completely different show.

I also clicked on the page (from the same site) about the MeTV show, and that looks completely different, too.

The Woody Woodpecker Show (MeTV)


I'd say they're both eligible for inclusion as separate series. Does anyone disagree?
