(The Channel Awesome logo is displayed, followed by 2018 title sequence)

NC: Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to. Remember the nightmare fuel in Son of the Mask? I know, which one?

(Four of such scenes from Son of the Mask appear around NC: Neuman's face being popped off his head; Tim as the Mask dancing with his face really close to the camera; Baby Alvey's head turning into that of Woody Woodpecker; and a whole bunch of babies with vampire fangs)

NC: (pointing towards Alvey's Woody Woodpecker head) This one.

(The scene is played in full: Alvey's head turns into that of Woody Woodpecker, doing his signature laugh, freaking out Tim)

NC: Imagine that for an hour and a half. Don't want to? I did, (becomes angry) AND YOU'RE GONNA SUFFER WITH ME!

(Footage of the 2017 Woody Woodpecker movie is shown, featuring the character CGI-animated in the human world)

NC (vo): Based on the animated character who became a hit in the 40s, (An image of the early Woody from this period is displayed briefly) the Woody Woodpecker movie targets this American icon on its most American audience... (The map of Brazil is displayed) Brazil. No joke, Brazil is where this film premiered, and they didn't even bother with a big-screen release in America; it just went straight to DVD.

NC: I don't know what kind of sign that is, but judging by the ton of people that want me to review this, I'm assuming bad.

(Footage of an 1950s Woody Woodpecker cartoon is shown over the movie footage)

NC (vo): I've no real like or dislike for Woody Woodpecker; he seemed perfectly serviceable for what his character was supposed to be. But from what I'm hearing in this film, there's a definite pecker that needs to be chopped in it.

NC: (grudgingly) Let's see what's good enough for Brazil, but apparently not us. This is The Woody Woodpecker Movie.

(Because the character is owned by Universal, the movie opens up with the company's logo)

NC (vo): Universal? Ooh! Maybe Woody's part of... (The logo of...) the Dark Universe! That's what Tom Cruise changed into at the end of The Mummy! (chuckles) And, by God, he's more scary-looking that I could have imagined.

(The camera shows a "No Poaching" warning on the tree, as two brother poachers, Nate and Ottis Grimes, walk past it)

Nate (Scott McNeil): (grumbles) No poaching... Hmph! (tears the warning off)

NC (vo): We open with Woody waking up in his tree to find poachers illegally hunting in the forest.

(Woody Woodpecker hangs up from a tree, observing the poachers)

Woody (Eric Bauza): This ought to be fun. (zoom in to him) Game on! (laughs crazily)

NC: (weirded out) Definitely part of the Dark Universe.

(As Nate prepares to shoot Woody, the latter carves a target on the tree, which is presented by him twirling around like a ball. After he finishes carving, the tranquilizer dart hits bullseye)

NC: Why do his whooshing effects...

NC (vo): ...look like (photo of...) Firecracker popsicles?

(Nate and Ottis corner Woody from the sides)

Woody: Okay, boys. You got me fair and square. (The brothers shoot) Not! (Woody flies up, and the darts hit each brother in the chest)

NC: This film knows how to update Woody! Its pop-culture references are only 20 years old, as opposed to 70! (The 1990s "NOT!" shirt and the classic look of Woody in the 1940s are shown above NC)

(The Grimes brothers fall asleep on the ground as Woody talks to the audience)

Woody: And I'm the one with a brain the size of a walnut?

NC: That's the people who greenlit this!
