We first met The Jetsons fifty-five-years-ago when it premiered on ABC. Their futuristic world made us all dream about the potential of flying cars and robot maids.
The original series took place in 2062, which doesn't sound as far away as it used to. We are apparently only 45 years out from flying cars. I'm not going to hold my breath...
The show followed George Jetson and his family as they dealt with their regular family life in the year 2062. A lot of the situations they encountered were still familiar to us, they just had cooler cars and gadgets. George was the patriarch to his space family the best he could and we loved to watch it.
There was his wife, Jane, whom he loved very much
His 16-year-old daughter, Judy, who was a bit of a handful
His 6-year-old son, Elroy, who was doing his best
Their dog, Astro, who was perfect because all dogs are perfect
And their household robot, Rosie, who did most of the work around the house and was pretty awesome
The show first aired between 1962-1963 and then was revived for a second and third season between 1985-1987. Now 30 years later, The Jetsons are coming back.
