Trivia

  • The short's title card apparently shows a worm attacking a bird. Such animals never appeared in the short itself.
  • The cat's lives-represented-as-nine-angels gag shown before Mickey sprays the cat so that it attacks Pluto was previously seen in Pluto's Judgement Day during the Uncle Tom sequence.
  • A spider resembling the one in this short appears as the first boss in the Sega Genesis game World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
  • The music performed in this short is actually one of Franz von Suppé's most notable work, Leichte Kavallerie (Light Cavalry).
  • This short was mainly made as an experiment to test the laboratory scene effects in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
