It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Subject, Cartoons. In 1994 it was voted #24 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the animation field. In 2001 the United States Library of Congress deemed the film "culturally significant" and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry.

The short is included as an extra on the first Hellboy DVD.
