Synopsis
Knothead and Splinter gush over a string of portraits of Woodpecker ancestors who have made great discoveries, and cajole Woody into following in their footsteps. Knothead even nags Woody in a dream. An Explorers' Society informs Woody of a region in the "Jungles of the South" where new volcanoes have been known to form and, with the Society's backing and helicopter, the Woodpeckers set off to find and name "Mount Woody". They locate an uncharted volcano, but is it what it appears to be?
