- This is the debut appearance of Little Kitty, Beans, Ham and Ex, Oliver Owl and the future cartoon star, Porky Pig.
- Struggling against other animation studios, Warner Bros. were desperate to find a character as successful as major studios' mascots (such as Disney's Mickey Mouse, Fleischer Studios' Betty Boop and Felix the Cat), and so Friz designed several potential characters.
- Porky was named after two childhood friends of Friz Freleng nicknamed Porky and Piggy.
- Many of the characters used in this short were given their own short, in order to see if they were a good recurring character, but WB particularly focused on Beans, to no avail, as Porky's stuttering kept stealing the show, successfully. Due to Porky's popularity, several of the other Warner Bros. cartoon directors, such as, Frank Tashlin, Tex Avery and Bob Clampett, decided to focus on Porky Pig, and Porky became the next major star of the Warner Bros.
- Beans and Oliver don't speak in their first appearances.
- This is the 100th Warner Bros. cartoon short to be released.
