Woodland Games

I bet you thought I’d forgotten, didn’t you, ES? Nope! Here is my entry to Evil Squirrel’s “Second Annual Contest of Whatever“. After losing last year, I have high hopes this year!

We need to include at least two different types of animal, and there must be some form of game involved – and what better than the Annual Worldwide Woodland Games?

I have been sure to label my creations, as the DraliDoodles team is not very good and it’s impossible to tell one type of creature from another!

Without further ado, let’s meet the teams.

Meet the Teams

I have a bad feeling about Team Possum :-(. Let the games begin! Let’s start with the 100m dash, featuring Team Squirrel, Team Tortoise, Team Possum and Team Vader.

100m dash

Team Tortoise, the little cheaters! Scratch one possum. Team Squirrel wins! But wait a minute, what happened to Team Vader?

Lack Of Pace

Oh dear. So that’s track, let’s see how the field events are progressing, where we find Team Possum very much in the firing line.

Possum Death


It’s a sad day for Team Possum. And behind the scenes, there’s more bad news for Team Vader as their favourite event gets cancelled.

Blow For Vader

That’s got to hurt Team Vader’s medal chances. And so, at the end of the Games, let’s see how everyone did!

Goodbye Teams

And for our finale, we will be treated to a fly-past by the Team Vader Aerobatic Display Team.

Sore Loser

Oh no! What a sore loser that Vader is.

I hope you enjoyed our little look at the Annual Worldwide Woodland Games :-).

    That was fantastic. I love the cartoon drawings–you should make it into a book – a whole series of cartoon stories.

      Imagine what I could do if I could actually draw 🙂
      Glad you liked it!

    This was great. You’ve started using color in your background. Very classy! I enjoyed this a lot. I laughed. I’m still laughing.


    • February 27, 2015 at 7:35 am

      I thought colour added a little something extra 🙂 I’m glad it made you laugh.

    Annoyed and Dead are the best placement categories EVER! This is great. 😄😄😄


    • February 27, 2015 at 7:36 am

      I’m glad you got a smile out of it 🙂 Team Possum never really had a chance.

    I was laughing the whole way through this! What a perfect combination of Dralihorror and Dralidoodles! As long as Buster isn’t one of the judges, I’d say this entry is a definite contender for the first prize! Excuse me while I wheel Team Possum over to the Mecca deli for proper recycling…


    • February 27, 2015 at 7:38 am

      I can imagine Buster’s eyes wide open at the horror of it all. I expect he was hoping Team Possum would return home victorious.
      Remind me never to buy “freshly sliced meat” from the Mecca deli counter 🙂
      I’m glad you liked my entry!

    The Woodland Games sounded like such a nice outdoorsy event. I didn’t expect all the blood and gore. You’re at it again, Ali. You’re the only person I know who can make bloody funny. 😀 Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne

      I don’t think Team Possum expected any of that when they arrived for the Games either 🙂

    Poor possums. The ending reminds me of that scene in “Kingsman” where everyone’s head explodes, but without the fireworks and pastel colored mini-mushroom clouds. You should consider cinematography.


    • February 27, 2015 at 1:45 pm

      There’s a film where everyone’s head explodes and I haven’t seen it? To Netflix, Batman!
      Yeah, I reckon this would make an excellent movie.

        Kingsman is still in the theaters, but probably not for long LOL


        • February 27, 2015 at 7:20 pm

          It’s no longer on here, but here in rural Cornwall we only have little cinemas. There’s not room for many films 😦
          I’ll watch it when it comes on Amazon Prime or Netflix!

    Brilliant ending after an exciting and somewhat bloody ccontest. Never trust a Vader, I’d say. First-class artwork, too. I loved this! 🙂


    • February 27, 2015 at 7:22 pm

      It was a bit bloody, wasn’t it? But the possum always dies in Evil Squirrel’s cartoons. It’s part of the fun!
      I’ll pass your compliments on to the DraliDoodles team. They’ll be very happy 🙂


  10. February 28, 2015 at 4:25 am

    Very funny and well thought out.
    Got me to smiling which is a feat.
    Always enjoy your doddles and add a blood bath, I’m impressed.
    Thank you.


    • February 28, 2015 at 5:40 pm

      I’m glad you liked it, it did take quite a bit of planning and then ages to draw the cartoons. A jolly old doodling bloodbath!

    Bloody hilarious that was! 😀

      Thanks 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it!


  12. February 28, 2015 at 3:05 pm

    You are too funny! BTW, possum may just be playing dead. He’s good at that 🙂


    • February 28, 2015 at 5:42 pm

      Ha ha, so I hear 🙂
      Glad you liked it!


  13. February 28, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    An awesome entry!


  14. February 28, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    This really made me laugh! Brilliant. 😀


  15. March 2, 2015 at 8:03 pm

    Wonderful! Feel a little sorry for Team Possum. But must admit a fondness for Team Vadar, users of the word “pox.” What fun.


    • March 3, 2015 at 7:56 am

      I’m afraid Team Possum was doomed from the start 😦
      Team Vader were rank outsiders and it showed on the day 🙂 Let’s face it, Team Squirrel was always going to win!

    I wanted to give you a Congrats on the win, but first I needed to see what you had one.
    I’m impressed. Don’t know why. I mean after all it is you. ;0)

      I’m glad you enjoyed my illustrated report on the recent Games 🙂 Possibly the most work I’ve ever put into a post!
