Behind the scenes
- Spike was a vicious dog in Dog Trouble, whereas in The Bodyguard, he was given the ability to talk and reason, but was a stray. Then he was reverted back to a mindless, vicious dog in Puttin' on the Dog. But in this short, Quiet Please!, it introduces what will be the status quo of a more reasonable and talking Spike who deals with the antics of Tom and Jerry.
