Socko in Morocco is the 52nd animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on January 18, 1954, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal International.
Deep in the desert, Woody is a member of the French Foreign Legion. He must protect the voluptuous Princess Salami whom Sheik el Rancid (Buzz Buzzard) wants to kidnap to add to his harem, which already consists of 750 wives.
Woody falls in love with her after seeing the hourglass-figured woman Belly dance. Sheik el Rancid kidnaps her and takes her to his palace, leading Woody to come to her rescue.
When Woody sees Princess Salami dancing, his eyes bulge out and he bounces up and down for joy. This is very similar to how he reacted when he heard Gorgeous Gal's sexy voice on the phone in A Fine Feathered Frenzy after she invited him over to her mansion by saying, "Mmmm, I love Woodpeckers! There's only one thing on my mind, sweetie: you! Come on over, dream boy. I'll be waiting!". A new ending theme was first heard.
