Random Trivia For This Title:

  • The gag with the The Three Stooges dressed in Santa Claus outfits, so that they may get into the palace, was used by the Stooges 11 years earlier in Wee Wee Monsieur.
  • The map with the clever country names ("Great Mitten", "Schmo-land", "Hot Foot", etc.) appears in their earlier short spoofing Adolf Hitler, I'll Never Heil Again.
  • Larry Fine's autobiography contains a photograph of Curly Howard as a chef in a deleted scene from this film. Curly had suffered a stroke a few years earlier and had left the act. He had clearly lost weight, and his face was disguised with a huge handlebar mustache.
