Near the end of the movie when Red Skelton, as Louis, has an arrow stuck in his rear-end, as he pleads for it to be removed he cracks: "Hurry up, this thing is starting to pick up several radio stations already". Coincidentally, three decades later his co-star Lucille Ball went public claiming she could hear radio programs directly in her head when driving near radio transmission towers. She explained that the metal fillings in her teeth detected strong radio signals making them audible to her.

Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later.
The automobile Louis wins is a 1942 Cadilllac convertible, the last one marketed before civilian automobile production was abandoned in favor of military vehicles at the start of World War 2. Louis's enthusiasm for the tires is a result of the fact that new tires were next to impossible to acquire, also because of wartime shortages.
