Walter Lanz: "Bathing Buddies" (1946)

Dad bought a black and white Castle Films release of this Woody Woodpecker cartoon and showed it in front of most family screenings of his films. The cartoon was originally released in theaters in 1946 in color (I never knew this before) and can be seen on YouTube, here in a nice transfer but clipped to widescreen: Bathing Buddies. For more information and the full 4:3 aspect ratio see Devon Baxter's breakdown.
