- a hanna-barbera production
- No background music was used for the title cards.
- For this season only, Frank Welker was credited by his full name of Franklin Welker.
- Because this season seemed more low-key in tone, Hanna-Barbera uniquely slowed down its custom laugh track, one of the few shows made by Hanna-Barbera to do so.
- Most of the season uses background music from Hanna-Barbera's shows from the mid-late 1960s, the majority of it recycled from The Magilla Gorilla Show.
- While the first season was animated domestically at Hanna-Barbera's Los Angeles-based studio, the second season had the animation production farmed out to Hanna-Barbera's recently-founded subsidiary in Sydney, Australia. As a result, the animation is noticeably lower-quality compared to the first season.
