    Hell no, not when the Jetsons had supersonic television at home with premium sports channel, lol!

      I heard that a live-action Jetsons movie was coming. I don't know if it's true or not.
      There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

      One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

          It's nice to know they haven't given up on the project.

          I hope it will be as good as the live-action Flintstones movie was.

            That's right, the project is still a go as long as they work on the script.

            And now it's time for Astro:

            Episode 4...

                  I posted the link to episode 5, George and Mr. Spacely sneek off to catch a football game. This is the episode where Henry elevates the apartment complex to 3,000 feet, above the rain clouds.

                  Football anyone?...

                      I'm going to link to episode 7 "The Flying Suit" because it may be the only example from the original series to show ground level in the Jetsons world. If that's true then that makes episode 7 very special indeed.

                                i really don't get the jetsons because they are meant to be living in the 21st century but they don't have things such as mobile phones, mp3 players, ipods, the internet, usb flash drives / memory sticks, dvds, dvd players or web cams,

                                  That's an interesting list, I'm very much aware that the Jetsons share a late 50's vision of the future - a future without a lot of gadgets, (generic, personal stuff), and this "clean" lifestyle was very prominent in early 60's future fiction. Devices, electronic or mechanical, were present but they were all hidden or actually built-in to furniture, walls, etc.

                                  I remember a show hosted by Walter Cronkite called "The 21st Century" that aired in 1967 where Walter walked into a "house of the future". The inside was empty. If you wanted to sit and read just touch the control panel by the door and chairs w/ table would rise from the floor. The voice-activated phone was built-in to the table top w/ flush mounted keypad. What looked like a blank wall was the TV, it was always "on" so the screensaver was a color co-ordinated wall to match the rest of the interior; it too was activated by voice command with a hidden keypad for manual control.

                                  Gadgets were everywhere but it was all hidden, many "visions of the future" were clean, minimalist and almost spartan to a fault. Our reality of stuff filled lives today would not be believed by future forecasters from the 60's. When the Jetsons premiered in 1962, Hanna-Barbera made the future as cartoon fun. They never could have guessed back then that most folks today would own so much stuff it's hard to find room to store it all.

                                    Great explanation eddstarr. I think about that old vision of the future sometimes and it is interesting the different turn that things actually took. The future we wanted was big. The one we got is small. Humanoid robot maids that crack wise gave way to Roombas. Videophones gave way to Skype and Facetime. Dirigibles lost their cool with the advent of airplanes, the use of which has become both affordable and aggravating. And we just sort of forgot about the city in the sky, in favor of the status quo.

                                        Thanks S n S, and not many realize that by 1962 the stage had been set for changes in consumer expectations by the electrification of the American household earlier in the 20th century.

                                        Reliable, cheap electricity plus the "higher reliability/lower cost" of gadgets that use electricity resulted in the world we see today. When I think about my family back in 1962 - the only electrical device that stayed on 24/7 was the refrigerator, everything else had real off-switches.

                                        From the vantage point of 1962 Hanna-Barbera could not have foreseen the rise of electrical/internet-capable use for everything from toasters to pencil sharpeners. Wouldn't surprise me if someday there's an internet-ready tie clip on sale for $100.00, lol. When was the last time a new device was introduced that didn't use electricity?

                                        And it's that lack of electric use savvy from 50 years ago that plays an important part in what you don't see when you watch the Jetsons today.

                                          Wow, I never realized that. Kind of obvious--after you mention it. I wasn't there, quite a bit younger than you. But I am an electricity nut so that is very interesting to me.

                                          My home is all electric (although the apartment upstairs is not...) I converted it, took out all the natural gas. I'd like to get a gold medallion for it, that would be awesome.
