* ScheduleSlip: Creator/MaxAndDaveFleischer had planned to release the film earlier in 1941, but pushed it to December on account of Creator/WaltDisney's ''Disney/{{Dumbo}}'' being in theaters. Unfortunately, this backfired as the film was released just ''two days'' before the attacks on Pearl Harbor, resulting in the film bombing hard. Even if it weren't for that, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Paramount screwed them over by refusing to promote the film anyway.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AmateurCast: Stan Freed and Pauline Loth as both Hoppity and Honey, with this film being their only major screen credit.


* CreatorBacklash: According to "The Fleischer Story", Max Fleischer considered the film a failure, even compared to Gulliver, and refused to even consider the film one of his achievements when he was interviewed in the 1950's. However, this could be chalked up to some unfortunate behind the scenes problems, such as the fact that he had a terrible falling out with his brother, Dave Fleischer, during the films creation, and the fact that the films release coincided with Paramount kicking him and Dave out of their own studio and turning it into Famous Studios.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: As noted, this film is different than Disney product of the day because it is set in a contemporary setting. But still, the musical sequence where the bugs sing as they set up Mr. Beetle and Honey's wedding plays ''very'' much like a Silly Symphony.


* HeyItsThatVoice: Swat the Fly and Mr. Bumble were both played by [[{{Popeye}} Jack Mercer]].
** Former Disney storyman/voice actor Pinto Colvig voices Mr. Creeper with a voice similar to the one he used for Grumpy in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. You can also hear his {{WesternAnimation/Goofy}} voice as one of the bugs.
** [[UsefulNotes/NoteworthyLooneyTunesStaff Tedd Pierce]] was C. Bagley Beetle.
** Smack the Mosquito is played by [[UsefulNotes/NoteworthyFleischerStaff Carl Meyer]] a semi known writer from Fleischer[=/=]Creator/FamousStudios, his other more well known role was as The Evil Wazzir in ''WesternAnimation/AladdinAndHisWonderfulLamp''.
** Mrs. Ladybug and Buzz are played By [[ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} Margie Hines]].
** Mr. Bumble and Swat are voiced by Jack Mercer, best known as [[ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} Popeye the Sailor]].


* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: As noted above, it was a major financial failure in its home country of the United States, where it remains obscure and unpopular. In Japan, however, it's considered an animation classic- Disney's DVD release in the country was produced by none other than StudioGhibli, and at the 2003 Laputa Animation Festival in UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}}, a group of 140 animators deemed it to be the ''13th'' best animated film ever made!
