Storyline

The Jetsons have made their film debut in a film about family, friends, and all that stuff. George's tightwad boss, Mr. Spacely, is determined to get his remote factor on his ore asteroid miles away to make 1,000,000 sprocketts, but all the vice-presidents sent to run it have disappeared for some reason, so Mr. Spacely must find someone else to run it: it would have to be someone mighty brave, and mighty stupid. So who does he pick? George Jetson. So George packs up his family: Jane, his sensible and loving wife; Judy- his rebellious teenage daughter who's gotten a new boyfriend: a super galactical rock star; Elroy- basketball champ who's losing faith in his father; and Rosie, his sassy maid. So while Judy meets another boy and enjoys a huge shopping mall, George sets off to work with his new friend, a robot foreman named Rudy 2. The factory is soon sabotaged on opening day, so George intends to investigate and disappears. So it's up to Elroy and his new friends to rescue George. ...

Typical Jetson Family Antics with One Eye Popping Psychedelic Song
10 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the Fact that the Hanna-Barbera Animation Studios Scored Big with Prime Time Hits Like The Flintstones and had a Gaggle of Other Characters Become Household Names Like The Jetsons, Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear, and Others, They will Forever be Given a Dishonorable Mention as the Studio that Killed Full Animated Glory.

The Fleischers (creators of Popeye and Betty Boop), Warner Brothers (Bugs, Daffy, etc.), had Made Glorious Full Animated Wonders for Decades, but when the Sixties Television Came Along the Art was No Longer King, It Was, You Guessed It, the Almighty Buck. So the Cheap and Looking It, Hanna-Barbera Flat Animation Took Over.

Not to be Stifled by This Limitation Jay Ward Came Up with Rocky and Bullwinkle with Incredible Witty Scripts and Characters, and Blew Hanna-Barbera Off TV Screens and Showed Them for What They Were. Quicky, Cheap, Superficial Non-Art.

The Jetsons and the Rest of the Studio Lineup did have a Modicum of Charm and Except for the Aforementioned Jay Ward Studios, It Was All There Was for Kids and Grownup Kids at the Time. This Feature Length Movie was Made Thirty Years After the Fact and is an OK Time Waster for Fans of the Jetsons Family.

The Most Controversial Thing for Fans was Replacing Janet Waldo as the Voice of Judy Jetson with Pop Star Tiffany. A Few of Her Songs are Included in the Film to Help with Modern Audiences. There is One Song, "You and Me", that is a Show-Stopping, Psychedelic, Extravagance that is Atypical of the Usual Uninspired Animation from the Studio. The Song and the Visuals Just Rock.

Other Than That, This is Typical Jetson's Stuff with an Environmental, Almost Socialistic, Storyline. Overall, It Can be Enjoyed by Fans and Non-Fans Alike if Nothing that Special.
