Cartoon Production Information:

The release date noted above reflects the release date as currently acknowledged by the Walt Disney Company. (If that date is correct, this cartoon reached theaters the day following the infamous "Black Tuesday" on Wall Street.) Other sources- including some official Walt Disney Studios archival documentation- suggest November 11, 1929 as an alternate (and possibly more accurate!) release date. It is possibly that the official release dates were massaged in the early 1990s to bring them more in line with the indisputable U.S. government copyright dates, thus protecting the Walt Disney Company copyright of Mickey Mouse and other characters from this cartoon, as well as the cartoon itself. Though, to be honest, the official date does seem the most appropriate for this short!

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
