Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The parade of bullfighters consists of caricatures of various Disney artists. The caricatures include (in order of appearance), [?] Bill Tytla (on horseback), [?] Fred Moore, [?] Art Babbitt, Hamilton Luske, and [?] Jack Campbell. The matador himself is supposedly patterned after Walt Disney. The little man bringing up the rear, carrying the matador's sword, is Ward Kimball, the lead animator on the scene.
  • This was the only Oscar winner for Best Short Subject (Cartoon) from the 1930s that was not a Silly Symphony.
