There is some confusion regarding two of his works. The Lustspiel Overture, which is his most famous work, is sub-titled Hungarian Comedy on many of the editions. However, he also composed a piece entitled Hungarian Comedy Overture that is entirely different. Confusing the issue even further is the fact that the J.W. Pepper edition of Lustspiel is entitled Comedy Overture. The word Lustspiel means "comedy" in German.
