Production Notes:

This story was reused in 1951's Cheese Chasers.

The first appearance of Sylvester. Also, the first Sylvester cartoon animated by Virgil Ross, and the first for which Tedd Pierce was a writer.

Sylvester's very first words: "Sufferin' succotash!" (Mel Blanc is said to have borrowed the line from one of his other characters, traveling salesman Roscoe E. Wortle in radio's The Judy Canova Show.)

Cartoon Network cuts the scene which the little blue lovebird is walking and thinking of ways to kill himself.

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.
