Behind the scenes

  • This is the first title card to spell the Jetsons' robot maid's name as "Rosie," when it had been spelled as "Rosey."
  • The Galaxy Strip, which apparently has robot singles bars, is a parody of the Sunset Strip.
  • Judy gets her driving license in this episode.
  • This is Jean Vander Pyl's favorite episode of The Jetsons, taking to heart what Rosie was going through.[1]


  • Instead of going back to U-Rent a Maid where Rosie was bought in "Rosey the Robot," George goes to Robot City, which may just be the fact it deals with robots in general, as opposed to outright ignoring the former.
  • George says "The Lubra Coffee Shop", but it's spelled "The Libra Coffee Shop" on the building.
  • When Rosie offers to drive, Judy's collar is white and her top looks a little short, too.
  • The driving instructor seems to be Mr. Tweeter from "Jane's Driving Lesson," but he has brown hair, instead of orange.
