"Knock Knock" is a 1940 animated
short subject, part of the " Andy Panda" series, produced by Walter Lantz. The cartoon is noted for being the first appearance of Woody Woodpecker, and was released by Universal Pictureson November 25, 1940.
The cartune ostensibly stars
Andy Panda(voice of Sara Berner) and his father, Papa Panda(voice of Mel Blanc), but it is Woody (voice of Blanc) who steals the show. The woodpeckerconstantly pesters the two pandas, apparently just for the fun of it. Andy, meanwhile, tries to sprinkle salton Woody's tail in the belief that this will somehow capture the bird. To Woody's surprise, Andy's attempts prevail, and Woody is taken away to the funny farm—where his captors prove to be crazier than he is.
Like most of the early 1940s Lantz cartunes, "Knock Knock" carried no director's credit. Lantz himself has claimed to have directed this cartune, which features animation by
Alex Lovyand Frank Tipper, a story by Ben Hardawayand Lowell Elliott, and music by Frank Marsales. "Knock Knock" was Marsales' final score for Lantz.
As the first appearance of Woody Woodpecker, "Knock Knock" is also the first cartune to feature Woody's trademark laugh, a gurgling cackle voice artist Mel Blanc had been perfecting since high school. This is also the laugh Blanc used for
Happy Rabbit, a predecessor to Bugs Bunny.
