This is one of only two theatrically-released cartoons to feature all five of the so called "Fab Five": the collective group name for Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto. The only other such film is On Ice (1935).
This cartoon is the origin of "goofy footed" which is the technical term for a right foot forward stance on a surf board, skate board, or snowboard. In this cartoon, Goofy rides with his right foot forward.
