Joe Besser and his straightman Jimmy Little had a popular Army drill routine that they performed on Broadway. Columbia brought Joe to Hollywood to incorporate his routine into this film, and cast him as the film's star and comedy relief. Besser's drill routine was earlier "borrowed" by Jules White in 1940, after White visited Joe in New York, and adapted it for the Stooge comedy BOOBS IN ARMS (1940).
Legendary Hollywood director and choreographer Stanely Donen was Assistant Choreographer. Actor Jack Gilford (A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, SAVE THE TIGER, COCOON) made his film debut in HEY, ROOKIE!, as well as horror film impresario, collector and magazine publisher Forrest J Ackerman.
