* FanonDiscontinuity: Some of the fanbase don't like to acknowledge the 80s seasons. Many different reasons include from the direction of the studio in the 80s, the more scifi storylines or the addition of Orbitty.
** Crossed with ScrewedByTheNetwork as Cartoon Network in the mid 2000s when airing the show on Boomerang showed much less of the 80s episodes despite regularly airing them in the 90s.

* HarsherInHindsight: The moving sidewalks stick out in the actual twenty-first century (though mostly seen in airports), where most people these days are becoming fatter and lazier due to poor diet and little to no exercise.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: Most of the soundtrack is by Tiffany (who is also the voice of Judy) who was no longer popular by the time the film was released, and the movie is basically the [[{{Zeerust 1960s future]] with 80s music and hairstyles, giving a weird combination.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The CGI used in the movie. Of course, the effects are dated nowadays, but back in 1990, these computer animated scenes were amazing.

* FridgeLogic: Apparently the apartment complex is lowered at nighttime and ends up in [[GreenAesop the blanket of smog surrounding the ground-level of Earth]], and Rosie can raise it up; but then you realize, Rosie has the authority to ''raise up the entire apartment complex''? The Jetsons don't own the whole building!
** They ''are'', however, close friends of the building's superintendent, Henry Orbit. Maybe he gave permission to Rosie (his robot assistant's girlfriend) to raise and lower the building?
** In any case, this previously happened in a 1960s episode, where the building rose above a storm.

* FridgeHorror: All cars fly, and all buildings are miles above the ground, standing on stilts. The ground is rarely, if ever, actually shown. It's been theorized that maybe the world flooded, or went through some environmental disaster. (A ''[[HarveyBirdmanAttorneyAtLaw Harvey Birdman]]'' episode joked that they lived so high up because the ice caps had melted and flooded the earth.)[[note]] Actually, in the original 1960's series, ground level was shown on a few occasions and it was perfectly fine, with trees and grassy hills. The whole idea of an uninhabitable Earth's surface in ''The Jetsons'' came in the 1980's revival, when the GreenAesop trope was popular, so [[TheMovie the 1990 movie]] shows people all living above a thick layer of pollution.[[/note]]
** It would appear that the only human ethnic group to survive into the future were Occidental. Worst case scenario: the result of racial cleansing via historic war or genetic modification. Only applies for the original TV show. Later additions would throw in a TokenMinority, most likely because someone took note of this rather unsettling environment.
