In the 60s, the vision of the future was trippy clothes, flying cars, and more robotic appliances than Bill Gates' house. In the end, none of this came true, but the idea that all these things could make life better was quickly put to rest by anyone who watched the series.

    George Jetson works at Spacely Sprockets, the corporation that pays him a daily salary for merely pushing a button, and heaven help George if he's late by one nano-second. At home, Jane Jetson is a homemaker; meaning she makes sure all the machines are doing their chores. Elroy and Judy Jetson are the couples children, Elroy a rambunxious junior inventor, and Judy the steroetypical rebellious teen. The head robot is Rosie, the maid, who often does her job with a little more wit and sarcasm than George wishes, but she's a cherished member of the family nonetheless.

    When's all said and done, the Jetson's ups and downs are pretty much the same as our own.
