  • Creator's Favorite Episode: Friz Freleng cited this short (along with Rhapsody Rabbit) as his favorite out of the ones he directed.
  • Recycled Script: A classic Friz Freleng trait; both the trained pigeons gag and Daffy's chemical drinking routine are borrowed from the 1949 cartoon "Curtain Razor" (and both have had the chemical drinking edited to remove gasoline drinking when both shorts aired on Cartoon Network and Boomerang), also directed by Freleng. The famous Xylophone Gag has also been used several times before, starting with the Private Snafu short "Booby Traps" and continuing with "Ballot Box Bunny". However, the other examples used a piano (or, in the case of the latter, a "PIE-ano").
  • What Could Have Been: The commentary track on the second Golden Collection revealed different musical arrangements for "Tea For Two" and "Jeepers Creepers", and one song, "The Daughter of Rosie O' Grady" (which was supposed to play during the trained pigeons scene), was cut from the cartoon entirely (in its place was a sound-alike to "Three Jolly Brothers").
