      • This episode was shot probably during the early-to-mid fall of 1932.

      • Among the Leroy Shield tunes heard in this episode are "Good Old Days," "Beautiful Lady," "In My Canoe," "Riding Along," "Yasmini," "Dash And Dot," "Little Dancing Girl," "Look At Him Now," "Blue Blue," "Teeter-Totter," "Bells," "Hide And Go Seek," "Prelude" and "Sliding."

      • Actors playing bit parts in this film include Harry Bowen, James Mason, Jack Hill, James C. Morton, Harry Bernard and Efe Jackson.

      • This was the first episode to feature John Collum as "Uh-huh."

      • The story for this episode generally derives from "Chicken Feed" (episode no. 62), with the chimp-on-a-rampage idea is straight from "Monkey Business" (episode no. 48). The chimp, incidentally, is Jiggs. A later episode in which the black boy of the gang appears to transform into a monkey was "Three Smart Boys" (episode no. 154).

      • Due to the racial subject matter of this episode, it was eventually removed from TV syndication.
