The viewed print was titled Hoppity Goes to Town, which was the film's reissue and British title. Mr. Bug Goes to Town was the second feature-length animated picture produced by Max Fleischer. The first, Gulliver's Travels, was released in 1939. The aforementioned are the only two feature-length films created and produced by the creative team of the Fleischer brothers. According to modern sources, the opening credits shot, which begins in space and moves down to New York City, was accomplished with a miniature set of the city. The set took four months to construct, and consisted of over 16,000 miniature panes of glass set in wood and plastic models.
