Splinter is Woody's niece. She is intelligent and quick witted, like her brother Knothead. She and Knothead have many adventures.They are both often quick to assume and 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. 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.
