Something You Can Really Sink Your Synthetic Teeth Into!
16 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If this episode teaches you anything, it's that George Jetson's bite is worse than his bark. What do I mean by this? Well have you ever had teeth with a mind of their own? It all began when George found himself experiencing insomnia. The company doctor diagnoses him with stress-related burn out. One major area of stress was located in his teeth, but I think we all know what the real cause of stress was, and right at that moment he bellowed for George to come to his office so he gloat about being up for the Employer of the Year Award, and naturally Cogswell calls up to bait him about it. Undaunted, Spacely demands George be present when the committee comes to look over his establishment. Cogswell happens to point out how accident prone George is, and I think he has a point. Spacely should have told George to stay home that day. But then if he did, where would the humor be? Where would be the chance for George to be fired for the one billionth time? Anyway, at the dentist's office, George is given the latest in dental technology: micro-processor controlled teeth to take the stress off his real chompers. Sounds promising, right? Unfortunately, it turns out the dentist was delivered the wrong teeth. The teeth he just gave George were actually meant for dogs. Well, that bites.

That evening, George chews his slippers to bits, barks at Astro, and even eats his food. Realizing these might not be the teeth for him, George tries to remove them. But oops, they're attached with super cement, so he rushes off to try and catch the dentist, chasing a car and harassing a mailman in the process. He's tossed in the loony bin overnight and when he and Jane go to breakfast the next morning, George takes serious offense to the waiter asking if he wanted a doggy bag. Now, throughout all this it makes me wonder exactly how the teeth are making George do all these things. Are they somehow connected to his brain? Anyway, after an uproar, George is ejected bodily from the restaurant. At work, George gets into a fight with the Doberman guard dogs, so Spacely switches the meeting to his house. No dogs there...only cats. Oh deary dear. So he chases the cats, gets predictably fired and is ejected from the house, knocking his teeth out. He tries to destroy them with every trick in the Wile E. Coyote handbook, finally succeeding with TNT. So, now George's problems are over, right? Wrong. It turns out a sponsor saw George's dog tricks and wants to use them in a dental commercial and pay him $5 million. D'oh! Fortunately, the dentist comes in with the right teeth and affixes them to George before the commercial shoot. Or so he thought. The commercial required George to hold onto a leather strap dangling from a helicopter with his teeth. George successfully accomplished this with his own teeth. The dentist didn't put in the synthetic ones for some reason. More bad news: the idiot cameraman thought what had happened was a rehearsal and didn't film it. The dentist does get the teeth in this time, only it turns out he goofed again and gave him vampire fangs. George chases everybody around, suddenly feeling very thirsty.

I have to say that ending was pretty funny. Though silly, predictable, and outright crazy, this episode still has got it where it counts. You really have to suspend your disbelief to buy what all is going on. And if you remember, back in "Dog Daze Afternoon", George temporarily gains the mind of a dog, so I guess someone thought that was so funny they should build an entire episode around that. So once again, this one was plain ridiculous, but if you're willing to suspend disbelief, then you'll find it to be great fun. Oh, and one more gripe: when George tells Jane he's out of a job (again), why does she act so surprised? It seems she's always shocked when hearing he got fired. Why is that a shock? He's fired in almost every episode. At this point it's gotten old, and it shows Spacely is an obsessive compulsive who lives to fire Jetson. It's psychotic. Is Jane really that dumb?
