In a solo stage act, Mickey Mouse performs "Traumerei", Brahms' Hungarian dance and the finale to the William Tell overture in a rousing (and ridiculously silly) violin performance.
- Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Black and White, Volume 2 (DVD)
- The film's copyright was renewed on December 16, 1957.
- This is the first Mickey Mouse cartoon to be released by Columbia Pictures.
- This was the first Mickey Mouse cartoon not by Ub Iwerks.
- An issue concerning this cartoon is whether the title of the short is Fiddling Around or Just Mickey. The former was copyrighted as such and was seen on the original theatrical poster, while the latter is its common title and it was shown on the recreated title card seen on the Walt Disney Treasures DVD release Mickey Mouse In Black And White: Volume 2, as no original release print with the title had yet surfaced. In 2009, David Gerstein uncovered an original 1930 release print which shows the title as Fiddling Around, implying that Just Mickey was a working title.
