The film within this animated short, " To Have - To Have - To Have - To Have - To Have - ... " is a parody of of To Have and Have Not (1944). The "Cast Off Characters" of its leads are named Bogey Gocart and Laurie Bee Cool and spoof the To Have and Have Not (1944) leads' star names of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. The Bacall name is also parodied in this cartoon's title, Bacall to Arms (1946), which is a play on the familiar military term, "A Call to Arms" which itself had been a film title many times prior to this cartoon short [See: The Call to Arms! (1900); The Call to Arms (1902); The Call to Arms (1910); The Call to Arms (1913) [aka In Love and War (1913)]; A Call to Arms Against War (1915) [aka The Battle Cry of Peace (1915)]; The Call to Arms (1917) [aka Her Country's Call (1917)]; and A Call to Arms (1918).
Bogart (with blackface):
My oh my! I can work for Mr. Benny now!
The ending where Bogey Go-Cart (a Humphrey Bogart caricature) shoots the Tex Avery-ish wolf over the sexy Laurie Becool's (Lauren Bacall's) cigarette butt, only to have the cigarette blow up in Bogey's face is edited on television prints shown today (which isn't that often). Cartoon Network aired this uncut on a compilation show called "The Bob Clampett Show", but it has never been seen after The Bob Clampett show was cancelled.
