Edit
Trivia Chuck Jones made his first attempt at experimenting with the traditional cartoon format and layout with this cartoon. He later said that Warner Bros. originally refused to release the film and threatened to fire him. Fortunately for him (and for animation history) the studio needed the cartoon to fill release orders for its shorts. See more »
