Wrestling Wrecks

Title Card

Wresling Wrecks is a Walter Lantz animated short, released July 20th, 1953. It is the debut of two wrestlers, Bull Dozer and Percy.


Woody watches a wrestling show on TV at home when he gets frustrated by constant commercial interruptions, then his pet Great Dane wrecks the TV set by leaping at it when a commercial featuring a beef steak appears on the screen. With his TV busted, and not content to sit at home, Woody dashes off to the arena to see the rest of the matches. His heckling leads to one thing: an apparently one-sided match with the villainous Bull Dozer for the World Heavyweight Championship. Woody ends up becoming the new champ.
