Some sources list this film's title as Who Killed "Doc" Robbin?. All of the children appearing in the film had previously appeared in Hal Roach's comedy Curley. In the opening credits, actors Renee Beard and Donald King are listed twice, first by their character names "Dis" and "Dat" and then by their real names. Like Curley and The Fabulous Joe, Who Killed Doc Robbin was paired with Here Comes Trouble and released in 1948 as Laff-Time. Although designed to play as a double-feature, Who Killed Doc Robbin and Here Comes Trouble also played separately and were released as second features in some locations. Laff-Time was the last of Roach's "streamlined features," a series of short comedies. The first streamlined feature was the 1941 film Tanks a Million.
