Added DiffLines:

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Every woman character practically shits themselves from joy when Frank Sinatra appears.
-->'''Henry VIII's Mom''': It's FRANKIE!


* EndOfEpisodeSilliness: "Stop that dancing up there!... ya sillies." Though, [[FridgeLogic does it really count if the rest of the cartoon was already silly to start with]]?

* DigitalDestruction: The print used in Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 2 is ruined by nasty digital interlacing, which causes the film to jitter and strobe like crazy if you freeze frame it - if you look hard enough, you can even notice it in motion! Fortunately, Warner Home Video has a replacement program for the defective disc. The print of this short included on "The Essential Daffy Duck" also does not have the interlacing problems of the Golden Collection print, nor does the version on "Platinum Collection Vol. 2".

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Yes, the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes did have a comic book series back then. In fact, they still do (only it's by DC Comics).

*{{Bowdlerization}}: When this short aired on Cartoon Network and Boomerang (barring its appearance on ''The Bob Clampett Show''), the scene of the Wolf chasing Daffy through ''Uncle Tom's Cabin'' was cut.
**The former WB network also cut the ''Uncle Tom's Cabin'' chase, and cut Daffy's line, "Ah, cucaracha. So round, so firm, so fully packed, so easy on the draw"[[note]]a catchphrase for Lucky Strike cigarettes back in the 1940s, though, upon first hearing it, it feels like it was cut because it could be construed as sexual innuendo -- and probably was by WB's censors[[/note]].

A [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1945 (released in 1946)]] WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes short subject directed by Creator/BobClampett, '''"Book Revue"''' is a semi-remake of the 1938 Creator/FrankTashlin short "WesternAnimation/HaveYouGotAnyCastles" (or just a throwback to the "things come to life in a store" motif that was very common in early 30's cartoons). However, pop culture references are up-front and center this time, along with Clampett's trademark expressive distortions and caricaturing, as well as some very catchy music. Midway through the short, good old WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck appears and intrudes on the story of "Literature/LittleRedRidingHood" -- and the fun really begins!
