Knothead, Splinter Introduced

I always wondered where the first appearance of Knothead and Splinter happened (in cartoons, not comics). According to Wikipedia, it is in the cartoon Get Lost.

Get Lost is the 67th animated cartoon short subject in the Woody Woodpecker series. Released theatrically on March 12, 1956, the film was produced by Walter Lantz Productions and distributed by Universal-International, per Wiki.

Woody is reading the story of Hansel and Gretel to his nephew Knothead and his niece Splinter.

Knothead and Splinter first appeared in New Funnies in 1952.
