Production Notes:

Uses a combination of live action and animation. Warner Bros. lore has the live-action parts of it being filmed silent, and all the voices dubbed by Mel Blanc.... It is fairly apparent that while the voices of Henry Binder, Michael Maltese, etc., are Mel's, Leon Schlesinger's voice doesn't sound anything like any of Mr. Blanc's "1,000" voices, and sounds quite authentically like Leon's.

If you look quickly, you'll spot Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett in the lunch break scene.

A satire on Hollywood studio intrigue, as well as a sideswipe at the relative status of Termite Terrace to that of the main studios.

This cartoon is said to have been the inspiration for "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."

In one scene, Porky disguises himself as Oliver Hardy. He also makes an Errol Flynn reference.

Daffy Duck makes references to Fred Astaire, Bette Davis and Greta Garbo.

Colorized in 1995.
