Behind the scenes
Tom reads about this short in Jerry's diary (with accompanying flashbacks) in the aptly named short Jerry's Diary. He marked it July 4, Saturday. In reality, July 4 didn't happen on a Saturday in 1943, but on a Sunday, instead. Although, the previous year in 1942, July 4 did occur on a Saturday.
In The Sopranos episode "Walk Like a Man", A.J. watches this short on TV.
