When The Jetsons originally aired, no title cards were present. They were only added when the series was revived in 1985, 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
- This is the last episode to be produced and aired in the 1960s. This would have been the final episode of the series, had it not been revived in syndication, roughly twenty years later.
- Also, it took twenty-four episodes for Little Dipper School to be seen in an episode (outside of the opening credits). Had it not been for the revival, this would have been the only appearance. Orbit High School was not seen in season one, outside of the opening credits, and was properly introduced in the season two episode "Judy's Birthday Surprise."
- Kenny is watching "The Swimming Pool" episode of The Flintstones.
- The fact that the Flintstones universe is fictional in this episode, does cause conflict for the crossover TV movie, The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones.
