Behind the scenes

  • Orbitty is absent for the first time since his debut in "Elroy Meets Orbitty."
  • George refers to Sentro as Lassie.
  • Fred Asteroid is a parody of dancer Fred Astaire.
  • Despite season two apparently being written for a younger audience, Cogswell tries to start an affair with Georgina (George). This may be because Barry E. Blitzer, the writer, came from season one, which was written more for adults in the 1960s.


  • Jane programmed responses into the solar tape deck that she could not have possibly foreseen. It would've been easier to just make the device cover up George's voice as he spoke.
  • The phone booth the Galacta Sneak is talking at doesn't have a screen, yet Cogswell is looking at him through his own.
  • Harlan has been given the character model of Moonstone by mistake.
