The Jetsons

October 8, 2006

It’s 2 am and I can’t sleep… I found myself thinking about, of all things, The Jetsons.


One of my favorite TV shows from way back, The Jetsons was a space age family sitcom.


I loved their space city with their little spaceship cars zipping all over the place. How did they keep from running into each other?And their apartment in the sky, wasn’t it Skypad Apartments? The apartment was so cool, with glass windows looking out at the stars and inside every gadget under the sun.


My favorite gadget was the camera phone. A little far fetched at the time it is no longer in the imagination. And what do you do if you are not “presentable” when the camera phone rings? Jane had a mask, complete with clothes, perfect hair and a smile she could put on over her robe and bedraggled hair.

Gosh, Jane had everything!



  1. Hope you can get back to sleep! I loved the Jetsons, too. I ‘invented’ a videophone for an elementary school project – must have been Jetsons-inspired. Now I have a webcam!! Amazing.

  2. Oh my gosh, the Jetsons were my favorite cartoon when I was growing up. They were so cool !
