The radio show Tom listens to at the start - The Witching Hour was reference to a real radio show "The Witch's Tale". The series was aired between 1931 to 1938, then went into syndication. Martha Wentworth provided her in-character voice of Old Nancy, the Witch of Salem, for the short. Most of the episodes are lost to time.
Mammy Two-Shoes brief appearance at the end of the cartoon is cut out of some versions of the short due to Tom biting her on the behind.
