Behind the scenes

  • Most of Orbitty's time in this episode is to simply be reprimanded by George.


  • Spacely calls Pleasure Planet the "Pleasure Carnival," which may just be another name for it, but nobody else calls it that. He could be referring to the carnival, itself, though.
  • The moon fleas say they're going to stay forever, which they don't.
