While the series was fairly well received when it was released, it came to an abrupt end when {{MGM}} dropped distribution of Ub's cartoons, instead choosing to distribute Creator/HarmanAndIsing's ''WesternAnimation/HappyHarmonies'' shorts. As such, Ub abandoned the character and shifted focus towards his ill-fated Comi Color Cartoons, with Willie becoming yet another one of many forgotten stars of the Golden Age of Animation.

* ArtEvolution: Willie initially looked like a boy version of BettyBoop, but Ub didn't feel he was funny enough, and quickly altered his design to be fatter and lankier than before.

* RogerRabbitEffect: In the climax of "The Air Race" has a brief segment of Willie's plane crashing into a real life smokestack. In fact, a scene similar to this was originally meant to be done in the original MickeyMouse cartoon PlaneCrazy, but was scrapped.
