Cartoons Comics & Toons
The JetsonsThe Jetsons was a prime-time American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions from 1962 to 1963. Like The Flintstones, it was a family sitcom projecting contemporary American situations into other time periods. While the Flintstones lived in a world with machines powered by birds and dinosaurs, the Jetsons lived in a utopian future of elaborate robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms, and whimsical inventions.
The original series of 24 episodes was made between 1962 and 1963 and was re-run on Saturday morning for decades. Its continuing popularity led to further episodes being produced for syndication between 1984 and 1987. The series was extensively merchandised and followed by three films.
The Jetsons Movies
The Jetsons Meet the FlintstonesThe Jetsons Meet the Flintstones is a 1987 American animated musical telefilm, featuring the first meeting between Hanna-Barbera characters The Flintstones and The Jetsons. This film was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, and debuted in syndication as part of the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 series.
Jetsons: The MovieJetsons: The Movie (1990) is an animated film based on the cartoon series The Jetsons, where George Jetson becomes vice president of Spacely Sprockets and oversees the work at Spacely's Orbiting Ore Asteroid. It was directed by Iwao Takamoto, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, and released to theaters by Universal Pictures. Originally slated for a 1989 release, it was delayed and Universal released The Wizard in it's place.
The film is often both criticised and praised for its messages about protecting the environment, and observing ethical practices when doing business in developing countries.
The film should also be noted for its early use of computer generated imagery, though it was still beaten by Disney's The Great Mouse Detective (1986). The animation greatly follows the cartoon series, though it added shadows on the sides of charactor's faces which, though not very realistic, gives them a sense of three-dimensionality.
The film features roughly the same voice cast as the cartoon series except for Judy and Elroy Jetson, whose voices were taken over by Tiffany and Patric Zimmerman (the original voice of Elroy, Daws Butler, passed away in 1988) respectively. Janet Waldo, the original voice of Judy Jetson, recorded the part for this film but was later replaced by then-pop starlet Tiffany. Studio executives hoped that Tiffany would attract a younger audience. Waldo continued (somewhat graciously) to voice the part in subsequent Jetsons productions. George O'Hanlon, the voice of George Jetson, and Mel Blanc, the voice of Mr. Spacely, died during production of the film and Jeff Bergman did the voice for both characters in a handful of scenes. The film was dedicated to the memory of both O'Hanlon and Blanc.
