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

  • In this episode, Spacely's middle initial is given as "G," although in "The Good Little Scouts", it is "Q."
  • This is the first time Mrs. Spacely appears outside of the visaphone.


  • When talking through the visaphone, Jane still has to tell George it's her, but this may have been done as a joke more than anything else.
