Daffy and Porky try to escape the Broken Arms Hotel without paying their bill, on which they are charged for every luxury, including air. They engage in several confrontations versus the hotel's stuffy manager after Daffy gambles away the pair's money in an ill-fated game of craps, only to end up imprisoned in their hotel room. Daffy and Porky seek help from Bugs Bunny by contacting him on the phone, but learn that Bugs himself is also chained up and imprisoned in his room in the same hotel, just like them.
- This is the first Warner Bros cartoon that Frank Tashlin directed since his departure in 1938. He would continue working for Warner Bros. until his departure in 1944, and his unit was eventually taken over by Robert McKimson.
- This is the first appearance in Looney Tunes of Raymond Scott's song "Powerhouse", the iconic "assembly line" musical theme used in many Warner Bros. shorts and in bumpers and station ID spots when Cartoon Network started out as a classic cartoon channel (known informally as "The Powerhouse Era").
- When Daffy and Porky are imprisoned, Porky writes "Porky and Petunia 💘", making this the last time Petunia Pig is mentioned in a golden age Warner Brothers cartoon.
- This cartoon shows what would become an out-of-character moment for Daffy, as he states, 'Bugs Bunny, my hero!' Later, Daffy would become a rival of Bugs. The "Leon Schlesinger cartoon" Daffy describes here, in which Bugs grabs a hunter's gun and shoots the hunter down, does not conform to any known Bugs Bunny cartoon.
- This is the first Daffy Duck short to be directed by Frank Tashlin.
- There is a short cameo appearance by Bugs Bunny, the series' only black and white performance for the character.
- This cartoon is the final black and white appearance of Porky Pig, other than the That's All Folks at the end of "Scrap Happy Daffy" and "Puss n' Booty".
- The cartoon was colorized in 1967 and 1990. The 1990 colorization replaces the 1939-46 ending with the 1937-39 Porky drum ending for unknown reasons.
- When the 1990 colorization was aired on Cartoon Network, the opening and ending titles were missing, due to using the The Merrie Melodies Show copy of the 1990 colorization which cuts out the opening and ending titles. Such was not the case when it aired on Nickelodeon, as Nickelodeon aired it with its original opening and closing titles intact.
- On both Daffy Duck: Tales from the Duckside VHS and Ham on Wry: The Porky Pig Laser Collection LaserDisc, the 1990 colorization was presented with both its original opening and closing titles intact. This cartoon is the only black-and-white cartoon presented as a colorized version on LaserDisc.
- The redrawn colorized version used the incorrect 1937-1938 font lettering instead of the correct 1942-1944 font lettering.
- This cartoon entered the public domain in 1971.
