This is what would happen if machines had feelings....
Love is in the air for teenage daughter Judy. She believes she's finally found Mr. Right...again. Dreamily she drifts home sighing, "yes, Booster" to everyone and every thing. Rosie the Robot, however, is undaunted. Mainly because she accepts that she is a machine and doesn't understand this strange "love" concept...be patient, Rosie, you will by the start of the second act. George's car spins out of control and he nearly crashes into Henry. Unable to open the dome, George gives a muffled yell for help, but unfortunately Henry was too stupid to take an obvious hint. So after a failed game of charades, Henry finally decides to open the car dome to find out what George was saying: "get me out!" Who else got it before Henry? Give yourselves a hand. Anyway, Henry decides to show George his latest invention: Mac, a loyal, robot helper, built from spare parts (does he remind anyone else of Conky from Pee-Wee's Playhouse?). He fixes, he repairs, he cleans, he says "blllll-ping!" at the end of every sentence...how much would you pay? Delighted that his small workload is cut in half, Henry sends Mac to perform his menial jobs- mowing the sky lawn, washing the outer windows, sweeping the elevation tubes, fixing the holes he makes in the walls in lieu of just going out the door. Yeah, Mac was a real godsend...until he meets Rosie, and then it's love at first megabyte! The robots flip their spring-loaded heads, discovering an emotion that was unheard of in robots before...except in cartoons. Being smitten by the robot maid, Mac begins to get clumsy at his work, installing a dishwasher in a planter and a sprinkler system in the kitchen, even an overhead shower in the living room, which gives George an unexpected shower. Well, sir, Henry is fed up with this. He melodramatically deactivates Mac and he slowly winds down....and the Academy Award for the most contrived, overplayed, overacted deactivation scene by any robot in history goes to Mac! So while Henry goes to right Mac's wrongs, Elroy Jetson finally shows up 21 minutes into the cartoon, but he's somehow already aware of the plot...read the script, I guess. Knowing Mac's plight, he reactivates him and he and Rosie are able to speak to each other via phone, so all is well. Even for Judy, who's now found another Mr. Right, and soon another after that one, and another one, and another one, and another one bites the dust. Well, at least George and Jane need not worry about planning any weddings any time soon.
This was Rosie's second and final appearance in the 1960s series. She got a larger role in the '80s reboot, but I find it strange that since she was such a popular, scene-stealing character, and she's seen during the end credits of every show, that they only used her twice. What gives? Rosie and Astro were overlooked in the '60s. But all is not lost, for they were given recurring character contracts in Season 2. So to all of you who have found love, are still looking, or wish you were still looking, or you don't understand what the heck love is like the rest of us, Rosie's Boyfriend is the episode for you!
