Splinter is Woody's niece. She is intelligent and quick witted, like her brother Knothead. She and Knothead (her brother) have many adventures. They are both often quick to assume and are somewhat superstitious. She and her brother often are annoying to Woody Woodpecker with all the accidents that happen while he is napping or reading a book. Once they annoyed him to the point that he sent them to Military School. Because they are mostly in episodes with Buzz Buzzard, you get to witness them annoy him, and occasionally his henchmen Tweaky, to their wit's end.
