When The Flintstones was a big cartoon hit, Hanna-Barbera decided to cash in on its success by creating a space-age futuristic version of the average family: The Jetsons. Much like The Flintstones (right down to the closing credits), In All Respects of The Danny Thomas Show for
this cartoon focused on the Jetson family. George Jetson was the bumbling-yet-kind hearted man who worked for Spacely Sprockets under the greedy and mean eye of Mr. Spacely. His wife, Jane was a homebody who was a whiz around the house (via buttons that do certain chores) and a good mother to their two children, Elroy and Judy. Elroy was a very intelligent and industrious inventor, and was an all-out normal little boy. Judy was cute and boy-crazy and a regular teeny bopper. If Jane ever needed help around the house, she could always count on Rosie, their wisecracking robot maid to pull everyone through. They also have a large talking dog named Astro.
The Jetsons was cancelled after one season and then revived twice in the 1980s. All characters returned with a few added characters. This includes Oribtey, an alien creature that followed Elroy home, and DyeDye, an electronic diary. Astro has starred in other cartoons and there have been a few movies with The Jetsons.
