I remember seeing this cartoon on TV in the earlier colorized version. Those earlier colorizations of Looney Tunes are so bad, they're laughable in and of themselves. Often the characters don't walk or run across the screen, they 'float', due to sloppy tracing of the original film-frames.

I also love that, in at least the copy I have (from the Toon Factory DVD of Ali Baba Bound, a DVD long out of print), the cartoon is back in black and white (with the redrawn animation!), has the intro title card with the 1954-1964 LT theme, then to add to the horrible-ness, the ending card is a 1943-1944 (or before Leon was gone) Porky drum with the, you guessed it, the 1938-1941 LT theme, and all very much slowed down!
