* DoesNotLikeShoes: {{Downplayed}} with Jane, whose regular outfit seems to include tights without shoes. Either that or those are some really high and really form-fitting boots.

Universal released an animated ''Jetsons'' feature film in 1990, complete with ConspicuousCG, a GreenAesop played out with a GangOfCritters, and reuniting nearly all of the original cast members save for '80s pop starlet Tiffany voicing Judy Jetson thanks to ExecutiveMeddling and Patric Zimmerman taking over for the late Creator/DawsButler as Elroy. The film also marked the last performance ever of noted voice artist MelBlanc (Mr. Spacely), who was still recording while in the hospital (as he had years before then), as well as George O' Hanlon (George), who by that point had to have the lines read and acted to him before recording (both passed away before completing the film and sound-alike Creator/JeffBergman filled in the few remaining scenes). The film was dedicated in memory of both men. This was also Penny Singleton's last film role, even though she would live another thirteen years.

a then-still-living Janet Waldo. The Jetsons stayed dormant for almost 30 years after the movie, until 2017.

!!The 1990 film provides examples of:

* TwoDSpace: Even in a future with flying cars there are still roads and traffic jams.
* TheAce: Apollo Blue and Teddy-2.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Mr. Spacely. In the series he is usually a MeanBoss toward George, but in the end he is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. In this movie he is a straight-up CorruptCorporateExecutive, without almost any of his redeeming qualities of the series. (He does seem to be basically redeemed at the end of the film, however, so this might also be counted as a CompressedVice.)
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: George refers to Mr. Spacely as the company's "penny-pinching peaheaded president" in one scene. Also, the middle part of "Spacely's Orbiting Ore Asteroid".
* AdultsAreUseless: Elroy, Teddy-2, and Furgie are the only characters who display anything resembling competence when it comes to dealing with the mystery. And after they've set out to solve the mystery, they succeed fairly quickly and with rather little effort too.
* AlliterativeName: In addition to the regular ''Jetsons'' characters, Furgie Furbalow.
* AmbiguousGender: Furgie. If her father had never stated she was a girl, most viewers might not have known.[[note]]even if she WAS voiced by Russi Taylor...[[/note]]. Her gender gets another confirmation at the end when Astro hands her back to her parents, saying "Here she is!"
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Rosie after Bertie explains his daughter's gender: "How can ya tell?"
* AnimationBump: Watch an earlier episode of the first season of the show, then look at this movie and see how much the animation quality improved.
* AsteroidMiners: Most of the movie takes place on an asteroid mining colony, known as "Spacely's Orbiting Ore Asteroid". However, the plant is fully automated, so there aren't any actual miners.
* BigDamnMovie: The original show = basically ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' [[RecycledInSpace in space]]. The Movie = taking down a corrupt corporation from within, with the survival of an entire species hanging in the balance.
* BavarianFireDrill: George uses a blow-up traffic cop to get through a traffic jam.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The Jetsons manage to convince Mr. Spacely to cooperate with the Grungies without destroying their home. But with the Grungies working at the plant, George is no longer needed there, so the family has to say goodbye to all their new friends and move back to Earth.]]
* CallingTheOldManOut: George finally gets to tell his boss off for something - namely, [[spoiler:for his plant endangering the Grungie colony.]]
-->'''George:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis No...SIR...Mr....Spacely!]]... [[IAlwaysWantedToSayThat ...Man, that felt good!]]
* ChainOfPeople: [[spoiler: The Grungies do this in order to pull Elroy from a landslide.]]
* ChewToy: George ''really'' takes a lot of damage in this movie, yet it's mainly for laughs.
* ConspicuousCG: An early example too, predating the famous ballroom scene from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. Here, it's used for exterior shots of the asteroid mining complex, other buildings, and the like. As a result, the CGI is mostly limited to {{Establishing Shot}}s and the 2-D characters never quite interact with it.
* CrashIntoHello: Judy and Apollo Blue meet when they crash into each other on their scooters at the mall.
* DisneyAcidSequence: Judy and Apollo's song, "You and Me". Justified in that it was in a simulation room.[[note]]It's also the only part of the movie not done by Creator/HannaBarbera themselves. It was done by Kurtz and Friends, a company that usually only does commercials.[[/note]]
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler:Elroy, sort of.]]
* GangOfCritters: [[spoiler:The Grungies -- a species of tiny, furry creatures that are responsible for sabotaging the plant in order to save their subterranean home.]]
* GentleGiant: The Furbalows.
* HighTurnoverRate: The vice-president position.
* LogoJoke: The Hanna-Barbera Swirling Star appears at the end of the movie, albeit with its "swirling" sound effects replaced with a majestic-sounding rendition of the first four notes from the ''Jetsons'' theme song (a.k.a. "the Jetsons' doorbell"). [[labelnote:Logo trivia]]Oddly enough, instead of the then-current CGI version, the 1979-86 version was used, albeit with "Hanna-Barbera" rendered in the trademark "script" font and the byline "A Great American Broadcasting Company" -- the only time that byline was ever used.[[/labelnote]]
* PreemptiveShutUp: After George accidentally gets stuffed into a box full of sprockets, he returns home to his family, who look at him in surprise, but he angrily tells them, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "Don't. Say. A word."]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Furgie. [[spoiler:Also the Grungies.]]
* TheRival: Teddy-2 for Elroy, at first.
* SoapWithinAShow: Jane, Rosie and Astro are watching ''All My Androids'' (a parody of ''Series/AllMyChildren''). All three are in tears as "Galaxina threatens to pull the plug on her romance", with Jane having to tell Rosie to stop in case she rusts again.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Teddy-2 looks just like his father. Also Furgie looks a lot like a smaller version of her dad.
* StockAudioClip: Judy cheering "Yay Daddy!"[[note]]One of only a couple lines Janet Waldo recorded that actually remained in the movie. Another is before the "You and Me" sequence, after Judy falls through the hologram tree. She says she's alright, in Janet's voice.[[/note]]
** Also, the same clip of Jane saying "how nice" is heard twice.
* TagalongKid: Furgie Furbelow.
* TodayXTomorrowTheWorld: A variation: Mr. Spacely says, "Today, Spacely Sprockets, tomorrow, the universe!"
* UnexplainedRecovery: Mr. Spacely rips out Rudy 2's wires, disabling him. He's seen at the end of the film functioning just fine, and no mention is made of it.
* WhamShot: [[spoiler:The Grungies' home, partially destroyed by a mining drill. This is the moment the Jetsons finally realize just how much harm Spacely's Sprockets has been doing there.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: [[spoiler:The Grungies.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Apollo Blue and the Furbalow family.
* ZeerustCanon: Being made in 1990, this movie is loaded with 1980's pop culture, from music to hairstyles, yet it's still set in the same 1960's RaygunGothic future, which sometimes gives a weird combination.
