Notes

  • This cartoon is notable as the first color cartoon Tex Avery directed, as well as the first Merrie Melodie he directed.
  • This is the only cartoon with all of its crew uncredited, with the only exception being Leadora Congdon who received onscreen credit as the layout artist, albeit credited as the "moderne art" designer and conceptionist. However, rural caricatures of some of the Warners crew, including Tex Avery, Chuck Jones, Bob Clampett and screenwriter Melvin Millar, appear outside the hotel at the end of the cartoon.
  • This is the first short to use the zooming WB Shield. This short is also the first to use the text, "VITAPHONE Presents". This text would be used until "Daffy Duck and the Dinosaur" released in 1939.
  • It is also copyrighted as "Miss Glory".[3]
  • The song is in the public domain, but the short is still under copyright.[citation needed]
  • The film uses backgrounds and character designs largely inspired by that of Art Deco, a style of modernist visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I.[4]
  • The voices in this cartoon were provided by members of the Our Gang short film series, all uncredited.
  • Most of this short takes place in the form of a dream sequence.
  • Tex Avery was dismissive of this cartoon.[5]
  • The elderly lady with the ripped dress and leaves would later reappear in the Looney Tunes Cartoons short "Daffuccino".
