I always liked the Jetsons and the push-button future…which some of that did come true except the flying cars and such…but we have some of the push-button technology. It was always a fun watch. Hard to believe it only ran for 3 seasons…the 1st in the sixties and the last two…two decades later in the 80s.
The Jetsons was a cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera. It aired from September 23, 1962, to March 17, 1963, then it later ran in syndication with new episodes from 1985 to 1987. When it came on it only lasted that one season. One of the reasons it was said because only three percent of American households had a color television set and the show looked flat in black and white.
The next two seasons were between 1985 and 1987. The artwork looked a little different and the plots were a little weaker. They did make a cross over movie between the Flintstones and the Jetsons called The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones in 1987.
