Notes

  • A caricature of Martha Raye is seen in this short.
  • This cartoon is seldom seen on television because:
  1. This short pokes fun at Native Americans.
  2. The short is part of the Associated Artists Productions package and does not feature any popular characters. Such cartoons are not seen as often as post-1948 cartoons on the United States Turner networks.
  • This cartoon was re-released into the Blue Ribbon Merrie Melodies program on April 8, 1944. Because the short credits Schlesinger on re-release, the original closing title card was kept.
  • This is the last cartoon to not have a "zooming sound" in the "Merrily We Roll Along" opening cue theme.
