Trivia

The series was considered to be adapted into the first feature-length Hungarian animated picture as early as the '60s. One idea was to just play all the shorts, linked together with newly animated scenes. Another concept that got thrown around involved Gustav traveling through and spoofing Hungarian motion picture history. In the end, all ideas fell through due to financial limitations and creative differences, and Johnny Corncob (1973) became the first Hungarian feature-length cartoon. See more »
