The director of the short is uncertain. Ub Iwerks' name is on the draft, but Iwerks had left the Walt Disney Studio four months before the animators started producing the cartoon. In Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies: A Companion to the Classic Cartoon Series, Russell Merritt and J.B. Kaufman say that it's "likely, but uncertain" that Burt Gillett directed the short, adding, "Circumstantial evidence points to Gillett as the director. After Iwerks left, Gillett directed all but one of the subsequent 1930 Silly Symphonies. Further, the scenes of the singing walrus and the applauding seals are lifted directly from Wild Waves, a Mickey Mouse short directed by Gillett in late 1929.[1]
