When The Jetsons originally aired, no title cards were present. They were only added when the series was revived in the 1980s, and the original episodes were given title cards for consistency when they were all packaged together for The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. Notably, they all include Orbitty, who wasn't in the original series.


The music was composed and conducted by Hoyt Curtin.

Behind the scenes

  • The cat from the closing credits makes an appearance, although it looks more like one of the cats from Hanna-Barbera's other TV series Top Cat, than the more realistic one from the aforementioned closing credits of The Jetsons.
