- Alternate Character Interpretation: 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.
- Creator Backlash: As mentioned in the main page's bottom paragraph.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: You can't help but wonder if the makers of A Case of Spring Fever were inspired by this short.
- The Woobie: 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.
