** The '60s series also gained the 1985 title cards, end credits sequence, and the laugh track was removed to put it in line with the then-new season. Compare [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRyrcpe74Yg this]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyinD6ZDqeg this]]. This was an attempt to "seamlessly" fit the 1962-3 and 1985/1987 seasons into the one syndication package, as if [[ViewersAreMorons no one would notice the the difference]] between them (e.g. the voice actors ageing by a couple of decades, and real-life technological advances during the gap leading to the '80s seasons focusing more on computer than mechanical technology). The 2004 [=DVDs=] (and newer re-issues to broadcasters) have restored all of the above to the originals except for the title cards, with the original ColdOpenings still missing.

After its prime-time run, the original 1962 series was rebroadcast on Saturday mornings on other networks, as well as in syndication. The plots have been compared to those in the ''{{Blondie}}'' comic strip and movies -- not surprising, since Penny Singleton (who played Blondie in the films) was the voice of Jane Jetson. [[UnCancelled New Jetsons episodes were produced]] for syndication in 1985 and 1987, and in 1987-88, there were two feature-length {{Made For TV Movie}}s. One of those movies, ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsonsMeetTheFlintstones'', served as a natural {{crossover}} between the two animated families.

A prospective LiveActionAdaptation, with RobinWilliams as George Jetson, was apparently axed in favor of the fourth ''SpyKids'' film, but seems to be back on track for an eventual release, with creative director Music/KanyeWest (yes, that [[TheDitz Kanye]]) and Warner Bros. looking for a director.

This Creator/HannaBarbera series demonstrates that even in comedy animation, SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale. The first series broadcast in color by Creator/{{ABC}}, ''The Jetsons'' was essentially ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''[[note]]Which predates this show by two years, and had always been in color, but which ABC initially broadcast in black and white.[[/note]] transferred to an idealized vision (even for the time) of the 21st century, with flying cars, conveyor-belt sidewalks and fancy (or rather, fanci'''er''') appliances. George Jetson and his family live in an [[SkyscraperCity ultra-high-rise apartment complex]] with their dog, Astro, and their robot maid, Rosie.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The "cheeky" FrenchMaid robot in the episode that introduces Rosie[[note]]Which was the ''pilot'', no less[[/note]]. Considering the original episodes were produced when they didn't allow female navels on TV (as in ''IDreamOfJeannie''), it's fun to imagine that Judy's navel is "really" exposed throughout the series, but just not drawn due to the simplified art style.

Added DiffLines:
* AdvertisedExtra: In the original 1962-63 season, Rosie was treated as a main character but only appeared two times. She appeared much more often in the revival.

Sorry for putting it in the wrong place.
* RecycledScript: The episode "G. I. Jetson" is basically the plot of "Uniblab" in a military setting.
