At the theatrical opening of this film, kids were handed (for free) an "autographed" picture of Rhubarb. The signature on the photo was a paw print. See more »
At the end of the opening sequence, when Rhubarb is pursuing the fleeing dog past a shop, the film is clearly reversed - the word "Furniture" over the shop front is mirrored, as is the wording on the mailbox. See more »

The opening cast list ends: "and introducing the newest addition to Hollywood's great galaxy of stars -- that dynamic, exciting, scintillating personality RHUBARB (by special arrangement with the S.P.C.A.) ...A.H.A. Y.M.C.A. U.C.L.A. B.P.O.E. R.F.C.)" See more »
A true classic especially for those lovers of furry little beasts and baseball. Gene Lockhart is delightful as T.J. Banner, owner of a baseball team that is not very good. He adopts a cat, a mean cat that has a "fire in his heart" that T.J. wants his ball team to have. That is why the name of Rhubarb is given to the cat. The team at first cannot stand being the laughing stock of the baseball world with a "cat" as the mascot. When another team brings a dog to chase Rhubarb the cat is the victor and the team slowly begins to behave with the "fighting spirit of the cat." Before T.J. can see all of this he dies and leaves his baseball team to Rhubarb with Ray Milland "Eric Yaeger" as the protector of the cat. This "cat team" starts to win and win and win. A must see comedy for all.
