Cartoon Production Information:
This cartoon is one of those withheld from distribution, one of the so-called "Censored 11." (The "Eleven" are: Hittin' the Trail for Hallelujah Land (MM,1931), Sunday Go to Meetin' Time (MM, 1936), Clean Pastures (MM, 1937), Uncle Tom's Bungalow (MM, 1937), Jungle Jitters (1938), The Isle of Pingo Pongo (MM, 1938), All This and Rabbit Stew (MM, 1941), Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs (MM, 1943), Tin Pan Alley Cats (MM, 1943), Angel Puss (LT, 1944), and Goldilocks and the Jivin' Bears (MM, 1944)). More recently, when Ted Turner became owner of the library, he continued the ban, and refused to allow any of these cartoons to be shown or released on video. To date, these shorts have not been officially broadcast on television since 1968.
Inside joke by Uncle Tom: "My body may belong to you, but my soul belongs to Warner Brothers."
Uncle Tom rolls the dice, which fall through the "iris out" and sit in the blackness. They flip over to "sevens" from "snake eyes." Then the "iris" opens back up, and Uncle Tom's hands grab them back into the cartoon. The iris then closes out again.
