  • Colbert Bump: People have watched it in recent times because this, apparently, was cited as one of the inspirations for Cuphead (particularly with one of the poses done by the flower boss, Cagney Carnation). In a Shout-Out to this cartoon, once you beat the game's final boss, The Devil, you get an achievement named "Swing You Sinner".
  • Troubled Production: The short was only partway completed when Walt Disney abruptly did a talent raid on Fleischer Studios, hiring away many of their top animators. The short only got completed when many junior artists, such as Shamus Culhane (who discussed this event in his autobiography, Talking Animals and Other People) were hastily trained to animate by Grim Natwick, and then promoted to the position.
