Trivia / The Jetsons

Trivia for the series:

  • The Danza: George O'Hanlon as George Jetson.
  • Development Hell: A live action feature film has gone in and out of production since 2001.
  • Edited for Syndication: When the original series was syndicated in the 80's, some episodes had scenes that were cut out for more commercial time or suggestive content deemed inappropriate for the modern era and the Laugh Track retained. These prints ended up being the ones shown on Cartoon Network and Boomerang when the networks aired the series. The DVD release, however, has the series uncut and with the laugh track removed.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: After Warner Bros. released the 1960s episodes on DVD, it took another five years for them to start releasing the '80s seasons on that format, and yet another five years for them to complete that era. Additionally, the latter 2/3 of the revival, including the TV specials The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones and Rockin' with Judy Jetson, became available only through the Warner Archive.
  • The Other Marty:
    • Lucille Bliss recorded six weeks of dialogue for Elroy before being fired by due to behind the scenes controversy. Daws Butler would voice the character for the series proper.
    • Janet Waldo recorded her dialogue as Judy for The Jetsons Movie, but was redubbed by pop singer Tiffany (who originally only did the singing) in post production.
  • Recycled Script: The episode "G. I. Jetson" is basically the plot of "Uniblab" in a military setting.
  • Screwed by the Network: The original series lasted just one season because ABC didn't require affiliates to broadcast the series in color, causing many who did see the series be appalled by the futuristic setting without any color to go with it. It ultimately found success in syndication, which was, for many, the first time people watched the series (and in its original color form, no less).
  • Uncanceled: A little more than two decades later.
  • What Could Have Been: Hanna-Barbera pitched a Spin-Off to CBS during The '70s, featuring older versions of Judy and Elroy. The network expressed a greater desire for a cartoon about The Partridge Family, resulting in Partridge Family 2200 AD.
  • Certain episodes of the 80's series have animation reminiscent of The Ren & Stimpy Show. John Kricfalusi was the animation director or layout supervisor for those episodes.
