Production Notes:

Many sources state this film was originally promoted as being produced in 3-D. There is no indication the film was ever produced stereoscopically, much less released in 3-D.

This was the first cartoon to be X-rated (adults only) in Great Britain under the British Board of Film Censors classification system; the first British cartoon to be so rated was "A Short Vision."

In 2001, the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
