The Jetsons are a family living in the future. They have all manner of technological appliances to help around the house. George Jetson works at Spaceley's Sprockets, doing his best for his family.Written by

The style of architecture and furnishings in the world of The Jetsons is called Googie. It originated in the post-World War II period to capture the sense of progress in the Jet, Atomic, and Space Ages. Real world examples include the Space Needle in Seattle,Wa, Many "classic" installations in Las Vegas, NV, and the former Pan Am Worldport at JFK International airport. The Googie style fell out of style in the early-1970s, and many examples have since been demolished or fallen into disrepair. See more »
Over the closing credits, George comes home, is made comfortable by Elroy and Judy, but it was short lived when Jane hands George the leash to Astro. He's next seen outside on the conveyor belt walking him when a cat jumps on it in front of Astro causing him to start chasing it, speeding up the conveyor, then both he and the cat jump off, leaving George running for his life and screaming for Jane to "stop this crazy thing!"

When broadcast in syndication starting in 1985, the original opening to the series was rescored with a more modern version of the "Meet George Jetson" theme. All the episodes (new and old) were also shown with opening title cards, although the original 1962 episodes did not have them. See more »
I think that the Jetsons is an awsome cartoon about the future. I don't know about you but I would love to live in the future after watching the Jetsons. What I think is so cool is between the Jetsons and Futurama. The Jetsons was released in the sixties and the idea of the future in the Jetsons age was a kind of sixties atmosphere. For example when you see Judy going to a school dance and the juke box music was playing while the high school kids were dancing under a disco ball. Futurama was released in the nineties and the idea of the future in futurama was that of a nineties atmosphere. For example, when Leela gets in bed with Fry and we think of that as comedy these days. The point is nobody can really predict the future. I would rather live in the "Jetsons" age because everything is easier and less complicated than the "Futurama" age. Except for Mr. Spacely (George Jetsons boss) who is always yelling at George when he makes little mistakes (lighten up Mr. Spacely). I like all of the characters: George, a cool father who works hard for his family, Jane, a loving caring mother, Elroy, a fun adventurous dude, Judy, who is not obnoxious like some girls today, Astro, loyal lovable dog, Rosey, who always makes you feel right at home, and Orbity, who is cool to "hang" with. I love to watch the Jetsons and their "easy" lifestyles in the future and I am sure that you would too. So step into the late 21st century and tell Jane to "stop that crazy thing"!
