Cut Scenes

  • The final scene of the cat shooting himself after he's "seen everything" was cut from television broadcasts.

Inside Jokes

  • At one point when the dog scoots across the floor, he says "I better cut this out, I may begin to like it!". This part was possibly intended for the Hays Office to cut out, who enforced the Motion Picture Production Code. Ironically, the scene was left intact.
