Most readers have probably seen the classic Bugs Bunny short cartoon “Bunny Hugged” at one time or another from its many airings on TV, but it’s not as well-known that Woody Woodpecker had an adventure of his own in the squared circle, in 1953′s “Wrestling Wrecks”. Amidst all the silliness is a joke at 3:36 which suggests that more people already knew wrestling’s big secret than we might give credit for today.

Oh, wow!

I love this cartoon! I’ve never seen it before you sent it in!

I especially like the gimmicks at the beginning, including “Man Mountain” (Hmm, so that’s where Vince got the idea for Man Mountain Rock from!).

Woody was the rule-breaker fans loved to cheer 50+ years before Steve Austin!

    Of course if this was meant to be in the UK Woody wouldn’t have stood a chance, the old lady would have done the heel over with her umbrella….think it was the law over here at one point….

    In fact, “Wrestling Wrecks” premiered in 1953, three years after “Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion”, where they play wrestling promoters and it’s clear from the beginning that everything is scripted (in fact, the fact that it’s fake plays an important part in the movie’s climax).
