Cartoon Production Information:

According to the British Film Institute, director Tex Avery's compression of visual gags into the fewest possible number of single frames created "one of the most manic (even by Avery's standards) sequences in animation history."

This short exists today only in reissue prints that were struck by MGM in the 1950's. The reissued version has an end-title card that erroneously lists this cartoon as a "Tom and Jerry" cartoon. A similar erroneous title-card can be seen at the end of Tex Avery's "One Ham's Family".

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
