TV.com summary

The Jetsons is a prime-time animated television series that was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. It aired on Sunday nights on ABC from September 23, 1962 to March 3, 1963. Like The Flintstones, it was a half-hour family sitcom projecting contemporary American culture and lifestyle into another time period. While the Flintstones lived in a world with machines powered by birds and dinosaurs, the Jetsons lived in a retro-futuristic (although not retro at the initial date of production) utopia of elaborate robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms, and whimsical inventions.

The original series, comprising 24 episodes, was made between 1962 and 1963 and was re-run on Saturday morning for decades. Its continuing popularity led to further episodes being produced for syndication between 1985 and 1987. The series was extensively merchandised and followed by two made for-TV movies and two theatrical feature films.

Synopsis

George Jetson works 3 hours a day and 3 days a week for a short, tyrannical boss named Mr. Spacely, owner of the company Spacely Space Sprockets. Typical episodes involve Mr. Spacely firing and rehiring or promoting and demoting George Jetson. Mr. Spacely has a competitor, S.K. Cogswell, owner of the rival company Cogswell Cogs. All homes and businesses are raised high above the ground on narrow poles, in a style reflective of the architecture of Seattle's Space Needle and the distinct Theme Building of the Los Angeles International Airport. George commutes to work in a flying saucer with a transparent top. Daily life is characterized as being comically leisurely due to the incredible sophistication and number of labor saving devices, which occasionally break down. George's work day consists of pressing a single computer button. Despite this, characters often complain of travails and difficulties of living with the remaining inconveniences.

Time period

Though no dates are ever specified, The Jetsons was originally supposed to take place in the year 2062.[1] Jetsons: The Movie confirms this by placing the series "at the turn of the 21st century". In the movie The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones, Elroy wanted to time travel into the future to visit the 25th century, indicating the Jetsons live no later than the 24th century.

Parodies

  • Family Guy, George is shown walking Astro on the automatic dog walker and gets stuck. Later, he chastises Jane for not hearing him screaming for help for 45 minutes. The show's opening was spoofed in another Family Guy episode, "Meet the Quagmires". As in the original series, Jane takes George's wallet instead of the money he gives her. However, George catches Jane trying to take his wallet and stops her from leaving his car. He then promptly reprimands her. Later in the episode, Jane falls from the sky and is apparently killed when Death arrives. Unlike the previous spoof, which featured the Jetson characters in Family Guy versions, this version featured them in their original designs. Family Guy also featured Elroy Jetson, only older and drunk.
  • The Fairly Oddparents, in the Nickelodeon TV movie Channel Chasers, when Timmy Turner first went in TV, he went into a cartoon that is a spoof of The Jetsons, but instead was called "The Futurellis." Two parodies of George Jetson and Astro can be seen in this TV movie.
  • Animaniacs, in the show's episode, "Star Warners" (a parody of the Star Wars trilogy), you can see "alien" versions of the Jetsons, who were trying to watch something funny on TV.

Trivia

  • The Jetsons' phone number is VENUS-1234. (See Telephone exchange names for more about this number convention.)
  • The sprockets produced by Spacely and the cogs produced by Cogswell are virtually identical; they are basically gear wheels. Their extremely simplistic and basic necessity in mechanics, and their similarities, juxtaposed with Cogswell's incessant offers to hire George away from Spacely, gives the show an eerily campy feeling.
  • Two characters on The Jetsons bear striking resemblances to characters from other Hanna-Barbera cartoons - Mr. Spacely, George's boss, looks like Magilla Gorilla character Mr. Peebles, the owner of the pet shop where Magilla lives; and Spacely's business rival, W.C. Cogswell, resembles Mr. Slate, Fred Flintstone's boss on The Flintstones.
  • An episode of Hanna-Barbera's The Flintstones, featured (via the Great Gazoo's help) the Flintstones and Rubbles visiting 25th century Bedrock, which greatly resembled the Jetsons' future. A made-for-television film was made in the 1980s that would pair both the Flintstones with the Jetsons (the aforementioned The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones).
  • George Jetson was ranked #4 in TV Guide's list of the "25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends" (1 August 2004 issue).
  • Penny Singleton, who played Blondie in the 1940s movie series, was the voice of Jane Jetson. The Blondie comic strip is often cited as a significant influence on The Jetsons.
  • The Jetsons live in the Sky Pad Apartments in Orbit City.
  • The syndicated version features an opening jingle using The Jetsons' door bell with the words "Hanna-Barbera Presents" under the "Hanna-Barbera Swirling Star" logo from the 1980s (the "Hanna Barbera Presents" logo was also used for The Smurfs).
  • The interior of Los Angeles International Airport's Theme Building was redesigned to have a Jetsons motif because the Theme Building's exterior had influenced the architecture seen in the show.
  • The style of space age architecture and design circa the 1950s and 1960s that is reminiscent of The Jetsons is known as Googie architecture.
  • The Jetsons theme song was used in a 1990's television commercial for America Online.
  • The lead/solo trumpet part for The Jetsons theme song was played by Bud Brisbois.
  • Astro's "real" name was "Tralfaz," but every time he said it, he would pronounce it "Tralfaz-blecch."
  • The phrase "You're fired!", has been used by Mr. Spacely on the Jetsons before both Donald Trump and the WWE. Often on episodes, Spacely can be heard saying "Jetson, you're fired!
  • A robot employed by Spacely to maximize the efficiency and productivity of the employees, George Jetson in particular, was named "Uniblab". This was a spoof on the name UNIVAC, which was a catch-all phrase for mainframe computers built by that company. Uniblab's tagline was "Back to work (click), back to work (click). Everybody (click) work work work work (click) work work (click)!"

A companion show to H-B's prehistoric sitcom The Flintstones (which was a big hit on ABC the year before), The Jetsons was a JFK-era Simpsons tailored to America's love affair with the then-burgeoning Space Age - and a show that managed to lampoon rampant consumerism, the corporate rat-race and the public fascination with mass media.
In "Millionaire Astro", the Jetsons are drawn into an ownership dispute with an elderly tycoon who claims their dog Astro (a lovable but stupid Great Dane who talks) is his long-lost "Tralfaz".
