'Morgan, Harry' plays an eccentric general and McLean Stevenson plays a harried doctor. In Harry Morgan's first appearance on "M*A*S*H" (1972), he played an eccentric general; McLean Stevenson was a regular in the role of the harried doctor in command of the 4077th.
Ronnie Schell, who provided the voice of the title feline, was also given the small part of an army sergeant. In post-production, it was decided that his voice was too easily recognizable, so the on-screen role was re-dubbed by another, unidentified actor.
Sandy Duncan is allergic to cats.
Sorrell Booke's final film performance.
