Indexer Notes

This story is an almost panel-for-panel remake of the story “The Forget-Me-Duck” from Donald Duck (Western, 1962 Series) #114 July 1967, with Donald Duck as the well-intentioned but forgetful bumbler who receives the memory of an elephant, to the very same awkward and disastrous results. While the original Donald Duck version of this story is 7 four-tiered panel pages, and the Jetsons remake is similarly laid-out to 8 pages, they are essentially the same, beat-for-beat, but with individual Duck-specific references now changed to Jetsons-specific references.

Indexer Notes

Not Hanna-Barbera characters. Creator Phil Mendez contributed many unconventional-looking but enjoyable fillers to the Charlton humor comics. He also did some uniquely stylized work on the some of the Hanna-Barbera characters seen in Charlton Comics.
