On a side note, the most famous scene is, surprisingly, '''NOT''' Mickey's fight with the giant (although that does double as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome) but rather Mickey describing how he killed the flies, as seen in the opening page quote, which is considered by many an animation nut to be a true highlight of animation acting (and Disney veterans Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston thought so, too). This is also the second to last appearance of the original "White skinned, Dot-eyed" Mickey Mouse design, the last being "Society Dog Show", and the next shorts "Mickey's Surprise Party", "The Pointer" and ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'''s "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" using a new design for Mickey from there on out (Though, nowadays, Disney will use the old design when they're doing {{retraux}} throwbacks.)
