Cartoon Production Information:


Modern versions have removed the scene where Daffy shoots himself in the head.

Mother Bear appears in a cameo in which she plays the harp in the background.

The second of only two Sylvester cartoons animated by Phil Monroe.

The Blue Ribbon release featured blue rings. This release also features the original title cards and includes credits.

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.

Even though Arthur Q. Bryan usually voices Elmer Fudd, Mel Blanc does one speaking line for him in this short.

According to Michael Barrier on a DVD commentary, Daffy and Sylvester's voices are the exact same. They both lisp. Daffy's voice is played back more at a higher pitch.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

This was it. This was the major turning point in Daffy's career prophesized by both You Oughta Be in Pictures and The Great Piggy Bank Robbery.
The toon starts off with Daffy in Mr. Warner's office saying that he is sick of doing comedy and...  (read more)
