| Very early Musical Depreciation
"Pass the Biscuits, Mirandy" was not intended for theatrical release, but as a "Soundie" for a coin-operated Pan-O-Ram. Spike Jones and his City Slickers made four Soundies, each based on one of their early records. These low-budget novelties were filmed just before RCA released Spike's million-seller, "Der Fuehrer's Face;" the band was still unknown at the time.

One fan of these early Spike Jones novelty songs was Walter Lantz, who used "Pass the Biscuits, Mirandy," and "I'm The Greatest Man In Siam" as the basis of two of his Swing Symphonies. Two of the City Slickers from this short, Del Porter and King Jackson, provided vocals for two other Lantz cartoons, "Apple Andy" and "Cow Cow Boogie."

The short itself is performed to a pre-recorded track, and is a rather crude production. But the band itself is in top form, making this short great fun.
