Hard to believe today marks half a century since viewers first had the opportunity to "meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy" and "Jane, his wife"! 8-)

Seriously? Fifty years after The Jetsons and I STILL don't have a flying car OR a robot maid? That's just depressing... :(

It's hard to imagine now, but like BATMAN, the Jetsons had their own Rogues Gallery of villains. Who could ever forget Knuckles Nuclear and his baby gas gun? Knuckles appeared in not one but two episodes of the original 1962 series! There was Mugsy Megaton, who had that obnoxious gorilla, Chuckles, as well as Mugsy's not-too-bright sidekick, Microbe. Then there's Mangler Mars, the dognapper who always had a cigar in his mouth and was determined to make life miserable for George. Let's not forget the Jupiter Juggernaut, who became no match for SuperGeorge! And what of Bad Bart Blaster, who terrorized a space-age version of an Old West planet?! Oh yeah...there was at least one female who was bad...Skata Hara, a James Bond-type temptress! Oh, and I forgot Solareeni, who mistreated a colony of fleas...if he had his way, he would exterminate the universe with a plague of the deadly pests...Happy 50th birthday, Jetsons!

i liked the film "The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones" from 1987. I was working as a nanny and the kids had this and it was pretty cute and brought back memories of my childhood. Ok, now I feel old..... :shock:
