- The character of Scat Cat was designed to be voiced by Louis Armstrong. The character's look was modeled after Armstrong - the way he played his trumpet, his roly-poly physique, right down to the prominent gap between his teeth. However, at the last moment, for unknown reasons, Armstong quit the film without recording a single line. His replacement, Scatman Crothers, was directed to "Pretend you're Satchmo."
- The Sherman Brothers (whose father wrote the big Chevaliar hit "Living in the Sunlight, Loving in the Moonlight") talked Maurice Chevalier out of retirement to sing the title song.
- The studio's first animated feature after Walt Disney's death.
