|Of Thee I Sting|
The title is a pun on the Broadway musical Of Thee I Sing.
In Target for Tonight-style, a narrator describes a mosquito attack upon a man in his cabin who has safeguarded his porch against insect invasion.
- Material was reused from the Target Snafu cartoon.
- This is a post-war short, but it is done in the style of war-time newsreels. By this time, most Warner Brothers cartoons had reduced their references to the war to minor elements.
- The names of the planes in the attack are: Gravel Gertie (a Dick Tracy villain), Bugs Bunny, Sweet Sioux (with a pin-up girl who looks like the red-headed singer from Tex Avery's "Red Hot Riding Hood"), and Mrs Kalabash (a mysterious character often referred to by Jimmy Durante).
- This was the earliest Looney Tune to be reissued and keep its ending music. On the Turner "dubbed version", the Merrie Melodies end theme plays instead (such errors plagued several of the other "dubbed versions" as well).
