      George: What's to get excited about?!? You know the old saying: "When danger threatens the young, doth not the mother eagle bare her claws?"

  • Notes

    • George's middle initial is J.

    • George is talented with the drums and gets to show it off in this episode.

    • The Jet Screamer spin entry sound effect was regularly used on the Winsome Witch shorts of The Secret Squirrel Show, occuring every time she uses her magic and says "Ippedty, pippedty, POW!" The sound effect was also used on one of the last Hanna-Barbera logos seen at the end of various HB shows. It was the animated rectangular logo that featured several All-Stars streaking across from Fred, Barney, and Dino (The Flintstones), George and Elroy Jetson, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw (in his guise of El Kabong) and Scooby-Doo.

    • The song "Eep-Opp-Ork-Ah-Ah" (That Means I Love You) is performed.
