Trivia

While Don Messick is heard on some prints of the cartoon, his voice was a "looping" of the scene about the pressure cooker. The original narration referenced the year 1975 as being the "tomorrow" of the title, so the line was redone by Messick (Frank Graham having died years before) to advance the year of the future to 2050.

Hilarious fun from a master of the animated short

This is a very good cartoon from Tex Avery, a master of the art form known as the animated short. Avery typically came up with a premise, often an innocuous one and then proceeded to do the most outlandish and ridiculous sight gags imaginable fired rapidly at the audience starting from the basic idea. Usually, there is a running gag threading its way throughout the short. This time, Avery is ostensibly giving his ausience a look at the house of tomorrow. Hilarious and glorious fun. Highly recommended.
