Production[edit]

For his role as Puss, the star Santanon was covered entirely by a furred cat costume, which in turn was adorned with feathered hat, vest and pants, and a sword.

Distribution[edit]

In 1964, entrepreneur K. Gordon Murray acquired American rights to the film, edited it to 70 minutes, dubbed it, and released it nationwide as one in a series of fantasy films intended to be exhibited strictly as matinee films for children. Murray's advertising for these films came with strict instructions as to showtimes, additional programming, advertising displays, and other matters normally left to the discretion of theater managers.
