Production Notes:

This is the first Sylvester cartoon directed by Robert McKimson. The first Sylvester cartoon animated by John Carey, the first one animated by Charles McKimson, and the first of only two animated by I. (Izzy) Ellis.

Final line (by Foghorn Leghorn, holding a ventriloquism manual as Henery Hawk drags Sylvester away): "I say, you gotta keep on your toes."

Foghorn pops out of the iris at the end of this cartoon and "A Fractured Leghorn" (1950).

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.

Alternate Title: "Barnyard Showdown."
