Full credits

The following credits try to match how they are displayed in the comic as much as possible:


  • This story marks the first appearance of the Jetsons characters (besides George and Astro, who cameoed at the end of the previous issue's story) in a comic book since the cancellation of The Flintstones and the Jetsons sixteen years earlier.
  • Elroy also appeared in Marvel Comics' Laff-a-Lympics #11 story The Toys from Tomorrow, featuring Scooby & Shaggy, who Elroy had minimal interaction with.

Coloring mistakes

  • None known.

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Cartoon characters have a seemingly perpetual life-span, but no living being would still survive beyond the Stone Age like the hamstersaurus did. Unless they the used time machine to send themselves into the future.
  • George mentions that there are no time machines in his family's time. However, George used time machines in Gold Key Comics' The Jetsons #19 and Marvel Comics' The Flintstones #4 and Laff-a-Lympics #11. Also, Elroy built a time machine in the made-for-TV movie The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones.
  • When the gang eventually get to the present, the Grumpy Ghost of Grizzly Grotto isn't actually on any of the panels, and neither of the two men with the police officer seem to be the Grumpy Ghost either.
