Daughter Judy … Jane, his wife! Meet the Jetsons, 50 years later. 1

Gotta admit I was blown away to learn that “The Jetsons,” the venerable prime-time cartoon show that lasted all of one television season, turns fifty years old tomorrow. The show, a huge American cultural event, first aired on September 23, 1962. Talkin’ ’bout my generation….

The insane hyped-up theme song, the lyrics for which got permanently burned into my newly minted seven-year-old mind, linked above.

Beautiful article about why the Jetsons matter in “Smithsonian,” on line here.

    Debra,

    Good meeting you at Paper or Plastik. Cool to see you pay tribute to The Jetsons. That theme song was catchy. Can you believe they haven’t made a Jetsons movie yet?
