(1962–1963)

Trivia

The first program ever to be broadcast in color on ABC-TV.
The design of the Jetsons' flying car was inspired by a 1954 Ford concept car, the FX-Atmos, notable for its all-glass bubble canopy, dashboard radar screen, and jet-plane-like tail fins.
Originally ran for only 24 episodes during the 1962-1963 TV season. In 1985 the program was revived, with new episodes designed to syndicate alongside the originals.
