    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Back Alley Oproar is a remake of the 1941 cartoon Notes to You also directed by Friz Freleng. It has a similar plot, but the characters used in Notes to You were Porky Pig and an unnamed alley cat.

      • At the beginning of The Great Piggy Bank Robbery, Daffy is heard saying "sufferin' succotash" while waiting for his Dick Tracy comic. This line would eventually become the catchphrase of Sylvester, who also has a lisp in his voice. Both characters were voiced by Mel Blanc.

      • The street car conductor briefly seen during The Great Piggy Bank Robbery is Porky Pig dressed in a driver's uniform and a handlebar mustache.

      • In 1994 The Great Piggy Bank Robbery was voted #16 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the animation field.

      • John Kricfalusi, the creator of Ren and Stimpy, named The Great Piggy Bank Robbery as his favorite cartoon on the DVD commentary for Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 2.

      • "Love dat man!"

        Daffy's early line about Dick Tracy, "I love that man!" and the pig's closing line, "I love that duck!" are references to a popular catch-phrase of the time, "Love dat man!", said by the character Beulah on Fibber McGee and Molly., a radio show between 1935-1959.
