* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Goldie a kind-hearted imp out to teach Midas a valuable lesson? Or is he a twisted sadist who bestows the Golden Touch on poor fools who create a ton of golden objects which he can then take for himself, all the while enjoying watching them suffer? Considering Midas' unbridled greed, which he was happily singing about, Goldie probably just couldn't resist.
* HilariousInHindsight: You can't help but wonder if the makers of ''Film/ACaseOfSpringFever'' were inspired by this short.
* TheWoobie: The cat. Most disconcertingly he's never seen again after being turned into gold the second time, implying that Goldie magicked him into non-existence at the end of the cartoon.
