When Judy Garland
was approached about doing this film, it was she who reportedly suggested that her two good friends (and The Wizard of Oz
(1939) collaborators) Harold Arlen
and E.Y. Harburg
provide the music and lyrics, respectively. It was to be both men's last full-length score for any medium. See more
The film supposedly takes place in the 1890s, but the montage of painters doing portraits of Mewsette includes Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso. Van Gogh died in 1890, while Picasso would not exhibit in Paris until 1900 (and would not paint in the style depicted until the 1920s). See more
Jean Tom, do we have to keep doing this? I think we should stop. We could get killed on this track!
But I'm not going to stop until I find Mewsette.
Fine. You look for Mewsette. I'm gonna look for trains.
The opening credits include colorful drawings of the movie's main stars which then change into their cartoon characters. See more
