Cartoon Production Information:

Live-action (black and white) with an opening sequence in TechniColor animated by Bob Clampett. The scene depicts the stars and planets, and their effects on Earth.

"That was the first time I officially directed at Warner Bros.," Clampett recalled in an interview. "At the end of 1936, Leon (Schlesinger) gave me a color cartoon sequence in a Joe E. Brown feature picture called 'When's Your Birthday?' It featured all the signs of the zodiac as cartoon characters."

This was Clampett's only work in color until "Goofy Groceries" (1941).

The film was the first of a series of independent comedies done by Joe E. Brown for David Loew after leaving Warner Bros.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
