Mike Maltese left the Warner Bros. studio in about 1959 to work for Hanna-Barbera. I don't know why Jones wasn't credited (Friz Freleng also wrote some of his 1960-released cartoons without credit).

Mel Blanc provides uncredited vocal effects. The first cartoon directed by Jones after Abe Levitow left the studio. Phil DeGuard provides layouts instead of Maurice Noble.
One of the few cartoons from this period animated by Keith Darling. He was a longtime assistant animator for Jones. In 1953 (just before the shutdown) he became an animator at WB, working with Robert McKimson on "All Fowled Up" (because most of the McKimson animators already left him at that point). After the reopening he became an animator for Jones, working on 4 cartoons. He was transferred to the McKimson unit after those 4 cartoons, since McKimson had no animators. After "Boston Quackie" (released 6/22/57) he disappears from the credits, and returns on "Hip-Hip-Hurry!" (directed by Jones, released 12/6/58). He animated for Jones (and Abe Levitow) again, until "Who Scent You?" (released 4/23/60). He then again disappears from the credits and returns animating for McKimson on 1961's "What's My Lion?". His last credit at WB was on "Aqua Duck" (released 9/28/63).
Does anyone have some more information about him?
