In addition to the 90s Woody Woodpecker Show(which I swore I saw a promo for), Jetix Latin America also aired classic Woody Woodpecker shorts, much like Fox Kids's Insomnio before it(hinting at the block continuing on Jetix early on). This one here is from "Under the Counter Spy".

That means ABC Family still had the rights

They should of aired it on TD or ABC Family

No, not MAYBE in the US. Latin America ONLY. If ABC Family Worldwide did have the rights to anything Woody Woodpecker, it would be the 1999 cartoon(aired on the Fox Kids block just prior to its demise, and briefly aired on Fox Family in 1999). There is no evidence that Fox/ABC had any rights to the classic Woody Woodpecker cartoons. As for the second question, there's two answers: 1) It didn't fit in with the existing channels' missions(with the possible exception of Spy Dogs on Jetix, though it does skew a little younger), and 2) Disney didn't even want those shows in the first place. They had to get the shows to get what they really wanted, the Family Channel

ABC aired The Woody Woodpecker Show from 1957-58 and was moved to NBC in 1970. Footage exists from the segments (but copyrighted) the best part about the show was when Woody started the tape, the projector would mess with him…..a lot

Yet, another HUN-CZE from 2006, during Jetix Max. It appears that the music during the main ident and the ad-break ident has a little differing tempo, as I listened to them carefully.

Jetix HUN-CZE continuities from February 2006. In the second video, they played the normal ad-break idents instead of the Jetix Max ones, probably because they weren't being made at that point.

Here's a camera screenshot of Jetix Play from 2005. It's the Turkish one if you want to know.

The person who did the screenshot with that camera is dirt cheap. Coudn't he digitally capture it?
At that time, it could only be watched on Digiturk in Turkey (you could only watch it if you were a Digiturk subscriber). It was probably difficult to take screenshots for digital media. Because I know that it was not possible to watch it on the internet back then.

note: Are there videos of the Jetix EMEA channel? I only saw 2 videos. 2 videos were '' next '' , but they were dubbed in Turkish.

Threw out my back on Sunday. Huge crippling pain and I could barely move. Still recovering.

My best friend is still in the hospital too. This week sucks.
It's not impossible for preschool shows to have videos with millions of views, but 7 million views in less than 2 weeks is surprising.

I have the Craig of the Creek: Capture the Flag promo played on TNT recently while watching Despicable Me 2.
that sad moment when you realize that Nickelodeon could've greenlighted another original cartoon but choose not to then waste it's resources on greenlighting another season of Fairly Oddparents just because they want to keep Butch Hartman.
Mike Milo's LinkedIn profile says he's a director for Harley Quinn season 3. He's worked on shows like Pinky And The Brain, Xiaolin Showdown, Chowder, Phineas And Ferb, Randy Cunningham, Curious George, and Scooby Doo And Guess Who, amongst other credits.
