Episode 53 – The Jetsons
The Jetsons is considered a timeless classic. To many, it is a true piece of historic American Television. Which makes sense considering it was made by the same people who brought us The Flintstones. The Jetsons has as been reworked more than once, but this week we decided to go back to where it all began to the original series from 1962. In all fairness, neither of us had seen this show in decades. We tried as we always do, to find a way to remove our rose colored glasses as we re lived this piece of americana. But what about kids today? Do the stories and morals of the 1960s hold up to today? Grab a listen and find out!
The Jetsons is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera, originally airing in primetime from September 23, 1962, to March 17, 1963, then later in syndication, with new episodes in 1985 to 1987 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera block.
