Production Notes:

Two scenes have been edited out of modern releases. Sylvester pointing a gun to his head in Porky's bedroom and another in which a mouse hiding in a vase points a gun at Porky.

The first cartoon in which Sylvester is named, as well as the first appearance of Sylvester in a cartoon directed by Chuck Jones. One of only two cartoons- the other is "Claws For Alarm- in which Sylvester does not speak.

The first Sylvester cartoon animated by Ken Harris, Lloyd Vaughan or Ben Washam, and the first of only two animated by Phil Monroe.

The Blue Ribbon release featured green rings.

In September of 1943, beginning with A Feud There Was, Warner Bros. began re-releasing select color cartoons in their Blue Ribbon program. Typically the Blue Ribbon reissues received new opening sequences with Blue Ribbon title cards and standardized music. Cartoon production credits were also removed. Between ten and fifteen cartoons were released in any given year, with cartoons coming from as far back as 1935. The reissues continued until the close of the studio in the 1960's.

All Blue Ribbon cartoons were released as "Merrie Melodie" cartoons regardless of the original series. The first "Looney Tunes" short to be included in the Blue Ribbon series was The Hep Cat, which was added in 1949. The only current prints of many of these cartoons are the Blue Ribbon releases, although restoration of these cartoons with original elements and titles is always ongoing.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
