Walter Lantz Studios addition

Postby dfarnsworth » Fri Sep 16, 2016 11:41 am

Hello, I have searched the forums but have not come across this so here we go...
An episode called The Secret Weapon seems to be missing from year 1963. According to tv.com it was part of season 1 episode 4 of the Woody woodpecker Show but the character wasn't created until 1960 for comics. All other sources I've tracked down agree it aired in 1963. Since an exact date I have not been able to track down could we add it to the specials section? It is often confused with a Hickory, Dickory, and Doc episode called Space Mouse which aired in 1959.

There is another episode from 1960, Jungle Medics, which seems to be missing as well. First and only appearance of Sam & Simian.

Hi,
Are those episodes (unaired) pilot episodes? If so, they'd be in the specials.
It's been a while so I'll also check if we have unaired pilots in the database, I have a feeling we have allowed it in the past.

No the episodes have reportedly aired. TV.com states it aired in 1957 though the episode summary below states the episode was created in 1963.
I have put out a few requests for information but have yet to hear back yet.
Anyone know how to read Production codes? SM-1 ?

Great, should be able to add them. Still might be tough to find an exact date.

Playing a little follow the links, Jungle medics I could see from the UCLA archives is that date/year and both eps were on the recent DVD.

Getting closer

Okay. I found that the two shorts released theatrically in 1960 (Jungle Medics) and 1963 (The Secret Weapon), during the decline of theatrical cartoon shorts, and appeared in the Woody Woodpecker Show in 1964 after syndication. That is why there is no definitive air date listed, at least according to a new friend. Taking it all with a grain of salt, I would recommend adding them to the specials.

Looks like this was never added, any plans to do so?
