•The 48th film in the series to be released.
•Production K-6.
•Filmed October 30 - November 18, 1925.
•17 shooting dates went into the making of this film. About a week and a half after shooting finished for "Buried Treasure" (no. 47), the 'start' date for "Monkey Business" arrived on Oct. 30th.  Shooting continued until Nov. 18th, when it was considered 'finished.'  No shooting took place on Nov. 1st, 8th or 15th, which were all Sundays.  After this, two and a half weeks passed before the Our Gang unit began shooting "Baby Clothes" (no. 49).
•There were 38 copies of this film printed for its initial release.
•In the TV print, the calendar on the kitchen wall can almost be made out to say January.  If the days of the week run Monday through Sunday, then this works, but if it's the traditional Sunday through Saturday, then it's more likely to be October 1925.
•Copyrighted February 6, 1926, by Pathé Exchange, Inc. Registration no. LU22369.  Since the copyright was not renewed, this film is now in the public domain.
