Knothead is Woody Woodpecker's nephew. He is very intelligent to the point where he and Splinter (his sister) can use laser blasters with ease. He is quick witted Like his sister. He is smaller than Woody. They commonly annoy Woody (once to the point that he sent them to Military School) with all their accidents when he is reading a book or napping, for example, accidentally dropping three wet bowling balls onto Woody's head while he was napping. Many believe that Knothead's aunt is Winnie Woodpecker because Woody and Winnie have gone on many dates in The New Woody Woodpecker Show. Knothead does not have the name 'Woodpecker' in his back, but many still call him 'Knothead Woodpecker'. Both he and his sister are somewhat superstitious and are often quick to assume. One time he and his sister brandished laser blasters to scare off Buzz and Tweaky.
