Reviews and Comments

From Gnik_LJN :

Notably, this short was the only MGM cartoon by the specific studio that wasn't composed by Scott Bradley, but Disney veteran Ed Plumb. Compare this short to 1953's Donald Duck short "The New Neighbor" and you can figure out some major similariries. These two shorts didn't utilize the rich, full orchestra that Scott Bradley (at least seemingly) enjoyed, but emphasized on simple reoccuring leitmotifs, and pushed for sheer power. Very interesting.
