In one scene, Lou Costello bets on a horse named "Lolly C". That is an inside joke, referring to Costello's mother, Helen Cristillo, who was an Associate Producer on this film.

Walter Schumann's score for this film features a recurring, five-note "Dum-da-DUM-Dum, DAAAAAH" motif, often used to punctuate moments when Ted and Tommy are in danger, that starting in 1949 would be immortalized as the theme for the "Dragnet" radio show and, later, both television series (Dragnet (1951), Dragnet 1967 (1967)).

During the dinner in the Copper Club, Ted (Bud Abbott) starts to tell the "Suppose you were 40 and the little girl was 10" joke. Tommy (Lou Costello) complains that he's "just a boy". Costello was, in fact, 42 years old (born 1906) at the time of the film's release (1948).
