This is the only time in the original theatrical Looney Tune & Merry Melody cartoon shorts, that Mel Blanc voiced the character of Elmer Fudd, while original Elmer Fudd voice actor, Arthur Q. Bryan was still alive. Arthur Q. Bryan died on Wednesday, November 18th, 1959.
The bear playing a harp is a reference to Bea Benaderet's previous character role in Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies cartoons, was "Mama Bear", in Warner Brothers' Three Bears' cartoons, during the 1940's decade.
The ending scene, in which Daffy shoots himself in the head, has been edited out of syndication... it simply cuts from the last frame (involving the expensive food) to Daffy laying down on the floor where he says, "It's getting so you have to kill yourself to sell a story around here." Other versions show a frame of the outside of J.L.'s office when Daffy pulls the trigger (the audience never sees the gun or the actual shooting).
Daffy Duck's full name is listed on the script as "Daffy Dumas Duck." "Dumas" is the surname of two authors (Alexandre Dumas, Pere, and Alexandre Dumas, Fils) of nineteenth century novels used as the bases for swashbuckling films, so this may merely be a reference to the father and son, and not Daffy's actual middle name.
Certain foreign language prints of the cartoon lift music from other cartoons to make up its soundtrack. Among the cartoons that the alternate soundtrack used music from include Roman Legion-Hare (1955), People Are Bunny (1959), Wideo Wabbit (1956), Guided Muscle (1955), Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z (1956), and Dog Tales (1958). This version is the one used on Looney Tunes Golden Collections Vol. 1's "music only" audio tracks.
Lady Melissa, though not seen in many early Warner Brothers' cartoons, later become a returning character on Baby Looney Tunes (2002) program.
