Cut Scenes

  • The scene where Daffy and The Big Bad Wolf run through the book "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was removed from Cartoon Network while Daffy's line about "La Cucaracha" ("So round, so firm, so fully packed, so easy on the draw.") was removed from The WB.

Inside Jokes

  • When Daffy Duck jumps out of the "Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies" comic you can see in the background a book titled "The Invisible Man: A Biography of Robert Clampett" written by "Ann Anonymous". This is an inside joke to director of this short and many other Warner cartoons, Robert Clampett.
