- Part of a continuity of strips featuring Donald Duck and Basil the Burro, this strip's addition of the 313 to the proceedings, in its first appearances, places it, and more generally this series of strip, as a sequel to the cartoon Don Donald (1937) which debuted the dichotomy of the unreliable car and the sometimes equally unreliable burro.
- Although coincidentally, the cartoon Get A Horse! (2013) shares this story's title as well as a focus on the alternative between cars and steeds, hence both borrowing the common phrase "Get a horse!".
