Trivia

  • This was meant to be a pilot for a possible theatrical series starring TV puppet Howdy Doody, but Howdy's creator "Buffalo Bob" Smith was dissatisfied with the film and ordered all prints to be destroyed. It was long thought to be lost until a print was discovered at the Library of Congress in 2010.
