Dressler portrayed Tillie in three other films, including the first full-length comedy, Tillie's Punctured Romance (1914), with Charles Chaplin and Mabel Normand, as well as Tillie's Tomato Surprise (1915) and Tillie Wakes Up (1917). Tillie has a different last name in Tillie Wakes Up, which could be explained by the fact that her character is married.
