"The Flying Suit" is the seventh episode of The Jetsons season one. It aired on November 4, 1962 on ABC. It was written by Tony Benedict, and produced and directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the creators of the series and the founders of Hanna-Barbera Productions.
George thinks Elroy has made flying pills, so he takes them to Spacely to turn into a fortune and put Spacely's competitor, Cogswell, out of business for good.
In order of appearance:
- Cogswell's hover chair
- Flying pills
- Flying cars
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.
