Although "To Itch His Own" is the last cartoon to credit Carl Stalling as composer for the Looney Tunes series, this short was partially scored by Carl Stalling as well, though he was not credited. The info comes from the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers, and Publishers. See more »

For many reasons this is the best Speedy cartoon, some of them are not that great but this was hugely enjoyable. The animation was a considerable improvement over that in a short like Quacker Tracker, not the best there is but there are some nice backgrounds. The music is nice, the dialogue is fun and the sight gags are sharp with a hilarious ending that serves as the cartoon's highlight. Mel Blanc is superb with the characterisations, and while I am not a huge Speedy fan(though I don't mind him either) he is fine here, as are the supporting characters. Overall, even if you're not a Speedy fan, this one is actually worth watching! 9/10 Bethany Cox
