Mixed Messages and a Swinging Song Craze!

George Jetson is not up on all this new-age rock music. He doesn't like loud, rock and roll songs with more shouting than singing, so as you can imagine, he's anything but pleased to come home and hear it blasting from daughter Judy's room. She and her friends are holding their Jet Screamer fan club meeting, by jamming to one of his songs while dancing on the walls. Literally, dancing on the walls courtesy of zero-gravity. Following the meeting, George grumbles of footprints on the walls and angrily takes away Judy's Jet Screamer posters...luckily she had spares. Soon after, there is announced a contest for someone to submit a song to Jet Screamer and the winner gets a date with him. Judy jumps right on top of it and writes her own song...a bad one. But not knowing much about musical quality herself, Judy is intent on submitting her manuscript; meanwhile, an angry George forces Elroy to stop playing at the park and come home, then he steals a written coded message from him and, in a devilish plot to humiliate his daughter to probably incurable ends, George submits that instead of Judy's song. Sorry, George, but the faux lyrics makes Judy the winner. Come to find out, the message (eep, opp, ork ah-ah) was actually Judy's creation, given to Elroy. It means "meet me tonight", for now. Well, deciding to act adult about his daughter's date, George gripes the whole night and sends Elroy to bed early for no reason. You have to wonder why in this episode George seems to hate his kids. Suddenly, in comes a group of media whores, er, news reporters, cameras ready. Then, in spins Jet Screamer ala the Tazmanian Devil. He and Judy go on their date, with an overly protective father behind them. First it's a stop at a burger fly-in, then a rocket ride at the amusement park, with George riding the faulty one. Then, a rock concert where Judy's song would be performed. Bribing his way in, George disguises himself as the band's drummer and ends up getting to start off the song. And so begins the wildest animated musical video you've ever seen. Heavy Metal has nothing on this. Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah was given a new definition: "I love you." Following that psychedelic jam fest, George and Judy head home with a new appreciation for each other, as well as an appreciation for new-age music.

Pretty good episode. This one was intended to be the pilot, but instead they used Rosie the Robot, also a good episode. "A Date with Jet Screamer" really reflects on the times and the generations, how one person's generation of music is another's headache. Music exists in all kinds for all to enjoy. Getting the DVD, I loved Janet Waldo's commentary on this episode. Too bad she didn't do more. Anyway, whether it be "meet me tonight" or "I love you", Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah means so much more! Metaphorically.
