This film was first purchased for telecast in New York City in mid-1948 by WPIX (Channel 11), as part of their newly acquired series of three dozen Hal Roach feature film productions, originally released theatrically between 1931-43, and now being syndicated for television broadcast by Regal Television Pictures. However, no record of WPIX ever showing the film has been found. Its earliest documented telecast in the New York City area occurred on WJZ (Channel 7), who picked up the Roach package after WPIX was finished with it, on Tuesday 9 August 1949. In Los Angeles, its initial television presentation took place Tuesday 23 November 1948 on KTLA (Channel 5) and in Detroit it was first telecast Saturday 29 October 1949 on WXYZ (Channel 7).
