Behind the scenes

  • It's only implied that the house is presumably the one Mammy Two-Shoes lives in since she is most certainly only the maid, while the girl is likely intended as the daughter of Mammy Two-Shoes's employers.
  • While this is the first appearance of Butch in a Tom and Jerry cartoon, he had previously appeared in MGM's non-Tom and Jerry short, The Alley Cat.
