Stafford provided the character voice of Woody Woodpecker from 1950 to 1990, but she asked not to be credited in that role until the cartoon Misguided Missile (1958). She believed that audiences both young and old would be "disillusioned" if they knew Woody was voiced by a woman. Walter Lantz always insisted that his wife had submitted her audition tape for the role anonymously, and was cast before he knew it was her voice. Stafford appeared on an episode of What's My Line? on November 10, 1963.
