Full credits

The following credits are how they are seen on-screen (or as close as possible).


Notes/trivia

  • While Josie and the Pussycats' main animated series ended on December 23, 1972, they continued on in Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space', which lasted until January 26, 1974. Early production art for Hanna-Barbera's 1977 "all-star" Battle of The Networks spoof, Laff-A-Lympics, featured Alexandra, Sebastian, Alexander, and Melody, among other Hanna-Barbera characters, as members of the Scooby Doobies team, but legal problems prevented their inclusion in the final program.
  • Despite being well-known for musical numbers on their own series, Josie and the Pussycats do not perform any songs, though they do appear playing their instruments in their cat costumes at the very end of the episode, nor does this episode include chase music.
  • The group talks as though the events in Mark Twain's book actually happened.

Cultural references

  • Daphne states that they are in "Mark Twain" country, which gives a hint to this episode's setting. In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the title character lives in the town of St. Petersburg, Missouri which is fictional but based on Mark Twain's own hometown Hannibal, Missouri.

Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • None known.

Home media

Archie Comics, who own Josie and the Pussycats, prohibit Warner Home Video from releasing this onto DVD. This is inspite of the fact that WHV was allowed to release Hanna-Barbera's main series based on them, and Warner Archive Collection was also allowed to release the spin-off.
