!! From the TV series

* EarWorm: Epp opp ork ah-ah!
** "Meet George Jetson! His boy Elroy!"
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Astro.
* 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.
** ''Inverted'' in Mexico: It's the original 60's version who is normally ignored for Mexican fans, partly because the time skip between the 60's and the 80's version and partly because Mexican broadcasters normally put more emphasis in the 80's version, not to mention the 60's version is rarely rerunned in Mexico compared with the 80's one.
* JerkassWoobie: Spacely. Despite being a [[MeanBoss mean boss]], he often has to deal with his snobbish wife and bratty half pint son who has little to no respect for him.
* NightmareFuel: The "Robots Revenge" episode from the 1985 revival. George pisses off one robot who then issues a "code red" where robots and machines everywhere turn against George, including Rosie!
* TheScrappy: Orbitty.
* ValuesDissonance: In the second season: the family is watching TV one night and learn that the priest who married George and Jane was actually a con-man, and that this one thing somehow meant they were never actually married. This means Judy and Elroy are ''bastard children.'' How did this episode get green lit?
* WereStillRelevantDammit: The music in the 80s revival is about 30% Simmons electric drums.
* TheWoobie:
** George, obviously, considering he has to put up with Mr. Spacely as a boss.
** Also Astro whenever George is too harsh with him and especially in "Elroy Meets Orbitty".

!! From the 1990 movie

* AwesomeMusic: All of Tiffany's songs, particularly "You and Me"
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The "You and Me" song sequence.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: A real life example as both George O'Hanlon (the voice of George) and Mel Blanc (the voice of Mr. Spacely) were both near the end of their lives making this the final movie of their careers. This is especially noticeable with George O'Hanlon who was getting so weak during the end of production that he could barely record his lines, [[{{Determinator}} but refused to give up before he finished this movie.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Teddy 2.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Most fans of the original series shunned this film after Tiffany replaced Janet Waldo as the voice of Judy Jetson in a bit of cheap StuntCasting by {{Universal}}.
** The same happens in Latin America, except with the ''whole cast''.
* MoralEventHorizon: You know those innocent Grungies being killed by Spacely's drills? He ''knew'' they were there and he started drilling anyway, ''and'' he fought to keep drilling until George shut the drill down via pinpoint sabotage.
* RetroactiveRecognition: BradGarrett voiced Bertie Furbelow, his film debut and a very early role in his career overall.
* RomanticPlotTumor: Judy's side plot.
* TearJerker: [[spoiler: When Elroy nearly dies, and George and Jane's reactions after he is saved.]]
** A real life example with both George O'Hanlon (the voice of George) and Mel Blanc (the voice of Mr. Spacely) who both died shortly after recording their lines and never got to see the finished product.
* TheWoobie: Elroy.
* 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.
