Herman was voiced by Arnold Stang, who later supplied the voice for TopCat. There is quite a similarity between the mouse's voice and that of Leo Gorcey of the Bowery Boys. Syd Raymond supplied the voice for Katnip. Raymond was also the voice of BabyHuey.

When the series ended, it wasn't so much because the cartoons ran out of steam, as because the studio sold all its ongoing characters to Creator/HarveyComics, which had licensed them for several years. But Herman and Katnip didn't go on to very great success at Harvey. They appeared in the back pages of a lot of comics during the 1950s and early 1960s, and were featured in an occasional issue of ''Harvey Hits'' (a later Harvey title with rotating stars), but never had their own comic book. When other Harvey characters were re-adapted into animated form—even some who, like ComicBook/RichieRich and Wendy the Good Little Witch, had never been animated before—''Herman & Katnip'' weren't. [[note]] though their segment were added to the "Casper the friendly ghost" cartoon, along with segments with BabyHuey and WesternAnimation/LittleAudrey. [[/note]] Eventually, they faded from view, and are now scarcely remembered.

* ATasteOfDefeat: Herman never 'lost' to Katnip outright, though some cases had his victory tainted in some way. One case had him take out a similar cat nemesis, only to be tormented by his nine angels.

* MadeOfBologna: The cartoon "Mouseum" shows Herman powering a bladed wheel behind Katnip that shears off successive layers from the cat from back to front. Each layer seems composed of reddish bologna.
