  • The final short to feature the “swing” rendition of the “Three Blind Mice” theme in the end.
  • What is the name of the castle in both The Hot Scots and Scotched In Scotland? (A: Glenheather Castle)

Production Notes

  • Scotched in Scotland is a remake of 1948’s The Hot Scots, using ample recycled footage from the original film. A whistling, howling wind-like sound is added to the soundtrack to give the film a more “spooky” effect; this was not done in The Hot Scots.
