With temperatures in the single digits around these parts, it’s appropriate that we swing the ITCH spotlight on an Antarctic character. Someone who epitomizes cold weather. A cute cuddly kind of a character who just can’t get warm. A cartoon star who symbolizes mankind’s eternal struggle for survival in a harsh environment. A penguin! But not just any penguin. A close personal friend of Woody Woodpecker. Let me see. Hmm. Well, I’m stumped. Oh wait! Why not Chilly Willy? Of course. I should have thought of him sooner. But if I had, I wouldn’t have anything to write about.
Here are two Chilly Willy tunes! One is Woody Woodpecker’s introduction to Willy, along with Chilly Willy’s theme song. The other is Willy himself singing the same song. Compare and contrast. I need your papers on my desk Monday morning.
