Mark Hamill (Corey Anders) and Bob Hastings (Henry Glopp) would later work together again on Batman: The Animated Series (1992) as the voices of the Joker and Commisioner James Gordon, respectively.
This series and Partridge Family 2200 AD (1974) are each wholly owned by Screen Gems, making them the only Hanna-Barbera series owned by an outside studio.
Hanna-Barbera wanted the series to have absolutely no link whatsoever to the 1960s NBC television series (save for the title character). At the time the series was produced, the studio had just spent an enormous amount of money having celebrities such as Sonny and Cher, Phyllis Diller, and the Harlem Globetrotters provide their voices for The New Scooby-Doo Movies (1972). That being said, Hanna-Barbera's budget did not allow for bringing in the likes of original cast members such as Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman or Bill Daily. Hence, the premise of I Dream of Jeannie (1965) was completely reworked for animation.
The name "Corey Anders" was intended by Hanna-Barbera to be a pun on "coriander" - a spice used extensively in Middle Eastern cooking.
Both this series and Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973), another animated spin-off of a live-action NBC television series, premiered on September 8, 1973.
