Stan Laurel once remarked that Richard Cramer, seen here as the abusive foster father, had absolutely no sense of humor, and played everything straight. Stan used him when he needed a serious character who wouldn't try to get a laugh.

One scene depicts Jackie Lyn Dufton cowering and crying alone in a room whilst foster father Richard Cramer abuses his wife in an off-screen room. We can hear the wife crying and pleading whilst Cramer shouts and overturns and breaks furniture. It's implied that the same has happened to little Jackie. It's a very disturbing scene, especially in a Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy comedy, and early television censored it or cut it out completely. It was restored for television syndication in the 1980s.

While Stan and Ollie are looking for Eddie Smith's father, they get a city directory and go to all of the "Smiths" listed. One of them is a boxer named Steamboat Smith. When they show up at his gym, there is a poster on the wall advertising an upcoming bout that says, "Steamboat Smith vs. Kid McCarey". Ray McCarey, the kid brother of director Leo McCarey, was the film's co-director.
