This was the final original WB cartoon directed by Friz Freleng and the final cartoon by the studio for Freleng to create this cartoon by music of his musical technique of creating every Cartoon he directed at Warner Bros. Cartoons. Once the studio closed in 1963 (the same year this cartoon was made), Freleng and former producer David H. DePatie would produce Cartoons for Warner Bros. from 1964 to 1967 at DePatie-Freleng Enterprises. Freleng would direct up to 5 shorts at DFE by music with his technique (and with help by fellow musician William Lava), until Robert McKimson would serve as the director for the WB shorts produced by DFE.
