Trivia

According to Michael Barrier, the character of Dan Backslide is said to be based off animator Ken Harris
Chuck Jones' first attempt at experimenting with the traditional cartoon format and layout. According to him, Warner Bros. originally refused to release it and threatened to fire him. Fortunately for him, the studio needed the cartoon to fill its shorts' release orders.
