Let's talk "Jetsons" this morning. A look into the future, just think about how many things we have today that we only dreamed of having when we watched the Jetsons. A nagging boss, traffic jams, thread mills for dogs, no wait, I don't mean this things. All and all it was a great cartoon. I didn't care all that much for the movie. Let's hear what you have to say about the Jetsons.
Truth be told I never really cared all that much about the Jetsons, primarily I think because I don’t much like cartoons that try to be sitcoms. The only reason I think I watched it as much as I did was because I was waiting for shows like the Swat Kats to come on. I did like the opening though.
Unfortunately, my Jetsons experience was similar. I watched it because it was on before all of my cartoons. The Jetsons were enough to keep my attention. Overall, an enjoyable cartoon that came on before Thundarr the Barbarian.
The most I really remember is the opening and closing sequences. The theme song is what really stands out for me. Which I think was very contemporary with that 1950s “lounge jazz” sound.
The REAL Jetsons only ran for one season in Prime Time in the early sixties. The watered-down, politically correct kiddie show started in the 80’s, and sucked donkey balls. Seek out the original, avoid the craptastic.
