From Justin Delbert :

There was a time between 1969 through around 1989 when this was considered one of the worst Looney Tunes ever made. This was because the Porky Pig and Friends package at that time only offered the redrawn colorized version of this one, and out of all the Looney Tunes redrawn, this one has been considered the worst job that they did. Fortunately for Merrie Melodies starring Bugs Bunny and Friends and all TV packages it appeared on following it, a new computer colorized version was made, and the original uncut black and white version has since appeared on DVD, renewing the respect of it being a great cartoon it deserves.
