The music is composed by Scott Bradley.
It was originally released in theaters on December 25, 1943, then released on July 29, 1950.
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.
