Directed by Paul J. Smith; produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal International.
(Note: video is dubbed into French)
In this short, Woody upsets the emperor Nero by interrupting his fiddle-playing, but then Nero is inspired to play the Woody Woodpecker theme song. Woody then antagonizes Nero by smashing his fiddle, so a guard and a lion are ordered to do away with the pesky bird. Of course, Woody finds many ways to outsmart the two and he ends up sitting on the throne and fiddling in Nero’s place, wearing laurels and a toga.
