- Animation in the tone poem "Blue Bayou" was originally created for the deleted "Clair de lune" sequence of Fantasia (1940).
- One of Disney's four "Package Films". During the second World War, the studio lost a lot of manpower and resources which left them with countless unfinished ideas too long for shorts, too short for features. So, inventive as they are, they stuck short ideas together into feature length movies. See also Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, The (1949), Melody Time (1948) and Fun and Fancy Free (1947).
- In the original movie release, the first segment was "The Martins And The Coys". This was a fictionalized telling of the famous Hatfield and McCoy feud. When the movie was first shown on television this segment was included. When the movie was released on video and DVD, this segment was eliminated since Disney felt that it was too violent or current audiences since it showed guns and people being shot.
- In the "Casey at the Bat" segment, a sign on the stadium wall announces that the Mudville 9 are playing Burbank in the fateful game, a reference to the location of the Disney studio.
- In "Willie the Whale", all of the operatic vocals - bass up through soprano, and even the chorus - were sung by Nelson Eddy.
