The working title of this film was Assorted Nuts. Motion Picture Herald reviewed it under that title. In the film, Wheeler and Woolsey perform a comedy routine over a map of El Dorania that closely resembles Abbott and Costello's famous "Who's on First" routine. The exact origin of this routine, whether it pre-dates Cracked Nuts or is original to the film, is not known. According to modern sources, producer Douglas MacLean, a former silent film comedian, contributed to the film's script.
