Férias Frustradas do Pica-Pau (roughly translates as Woody Woodpecker's Frustrated Vacations) is a platform game developed and published by Tectoy for the Sega Mega Drive and the Sega Master System on 1996 in Brasil Only.


The player takes the role of Woody Woodpecker. Woody's attack is using his beak to attack at enemies. One can also jump to cross platforms or to avoid enemy attacks such as throwing acorns. Also the player would have to collect money bags which are across the levels. Aiding Woody Woodpecker is a rocket pack which makes the player travel faster and a horn to wake Wally Walrus, however these only appear in the Mega Drive version.

At the start of the game, Woody Woodpecker and his friends are travelling down in a car towards their vacation spot. When Woody takes a photo of his friends, a flash suddenly makes them disappear. A letter falls. It reads that Buzz Buzzard (known as Zeca Urubu in the game) has kidnapped Woody's friends and the first to go is Andy Panda. Woody has to save them.

  • This game also marks the first video game appearance of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in a cameo role and also Oswald's final appearance in Walter Lantz's design.
