Facts about

Elizabeth MacRae who provided the voice for Ladyfish portrayed Gomer Pyle's girlfriend on Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. which starred Jim Nabors who started out on The Andy Griffith Show as did Don Knotts who voiced, the United States Navy's top secret talking fish, "The Incredible Mr. Limpet".
This was the final animated film work released by Warner Brothers before the animation studio was shut down. Warners would continue to release theatrical shorts produced by Depatie-Freleng Enterprises until 1969.
A remake has been long in development. Don Knotts was aware of plans for the remake, which he wrote about in his autobiography. At the time, Jim Carrey was up for the role and Knotts offered his support. Director Kevin Lima was attached with Zach Galifianakis in the lead role, but both soon left the project. The attached director at the moment is Richard Linklater.
