- Everyone had it bad when they had to play their busted instruments, but poor Donald had it worst when he tried to play a damaged concertina and it made the sound of a donkey braying. Not once, but twice. This is one of the funniest scenes in the short.
- The most shocking (and funny) scene of the picture is the infamous moment where, when Donald Duck tries storming off-stage, Mickey Mouse blocks his path and holds him at gunpoint! Surprisingly, this short would up getting released, intact, on one of the Disney Mini-Classics VHS releases.
- How are the instruments damaged? They are crushed by an elevator.
