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
- It's only implied that it's Jane's mother who Elroy and Judy are going to visit, not outright stated.
- Las Venus is a parody of Las Vegas. It is not based on the planet Venus.
- When George and Jane are first placed in the car, they only have black dots for eyes; then when Judy is placed in the car she has only black dots, but the former two's eyes are back to normal. A couple of minutes later, when George is talking about gambling to make the money back he lost last time, all three have black dots for eyes.
