Fans of all ages need no introduction to Hanna-Barbera's Classic TV series `The Jetsons,' but may be confused by the origin date of this fabulous DVD release: 1985!

That's because the "original" Jetsons, which debuted Sept. 23, 1962, lasted for only one season on ABC, but became much more successful when it eventually ended up in syndication. (Those episodes have already been released on DVD. The Jetsons - The Complete First Season)

That successful syndication led to a brief revival in 1985 with all-new episodes. The new series, referred to as `Season Two,' boasted more advanced animation, which had richer color, along with attempts to add content to make it seem even more futuristic than its parent show.

The first 21 Episodes from 1985's `Season Two,' have been collected here for the time in this three-disc boxed set from Warner Home Video. Jetsons-Season 2 V01

In addition, a special featurette, `Jetsons: Return to the Future,' is also included that focuses on the evolution of the series. Among those interviewed is animation expert Mark Evanier.

`The Jetsons' was originally conceived following the iconic success of Hanna-Barbera's `The Flintstones,' which featured a `modern' Stone Age family. Hanna-Barbera decided to turn their Bedrock success on its ear, creating a similar family cartoon, but changed the setting to their vision of the Space Age - the 21st century!

The Jetsons originally lived Orbit City, a city where the houses were literally way, way up in the air, like Space Age needles.

Compared to season one of the Jetsons, the stories in season two are dumbed down and inferior. Whereas the background music from season one was fun, interesting, and quirky, the background music from season two is dull, bland, and generic. And while the animation in season one was simple and got the job done, the computerized blurring of the backgrounds in season two makes the cartoons look quite sterile.

We've often had wondered what the 21st Century would be like all these years, but still don't know what the future would be like. That was also said for cartoons as well. Back in 1962, The Jetsons were introduced to a whole new generation of cartoon lovers. The show was brought in as a spin-off from the massive success of The Flintstones. While the cartoons episodes like Rosie The Robot and Elroy's Mob were funny and full of life, it sadly was overlooked back in the 60's. Fortunately, in 1985, The Jetsons came back to be introduced to a whole new generation of fans young and old alike. Not only that, the episodes were much more dynamic and full of life more than ever. Now, those 80's great shows are finally coming to DVD.

The Jetsons: Season 2 Volume 1 is a simple and strong reintroduction to the first family of the 21st Century. The DVD collection contains over 20 of the classic cartoons that were not just entertaining for The Jetsons, but just a great deal of excitement for a whole new generation of fans. The episodes have all been remastered beautifully, and just a great reminder of what made The Jetsons so special. The collection of shows includes great episodes like Elroy Meets Orbity, which featured the debut of the lovely and adorable suction-cupped alien from an asteroid who hatched from and egg Elroy brought home from a field trip, The Cosmic Courtship of George & Jane, where George & Jane re-tell the tale of who they first got together, after George accidentally forgets about their anniversary of how they fell in love and then finding out their marriage ceremony was not legal from the person who conducted their wedding ceremony. For that notion the family goes to Las Venus to get married all over again. Also there is Family Fallout where Mr.

This season of The Jetsons is weird. Thank goodness it's cheap. It looks like Season 1 somewhat but is very dated, eighties. How is the original season older and still more timeless? There are three main reasons I dislike this series:
1. Some of the episodes feature some horrible cliche early eighties style rock. It's really bad.
2. Orbity is overused and pointless. Remember how The Super Friends were ruined by the Wonder Twins? Well there you go...
3. The plots to the individual stories are poorly written and watered down when compared to the earlier season.

I want to like this season but its pretty bad esp compared to what Hanna Barbera was able to do several years before with Yogi, The Flintstones and The Jetsons. I guess the original season was written and created for adults during primetime where this season was built for Saturday morning kid time. I'm a child of the late 70s and early eighties so perhaps this appealed to me as a kid but the earlier season is a much better fit now. 3 stars for these episodes.

For DVD production quality I would give this a big, fat fail. Each episode is a gamble. Some are grainy and dull others are bright but fuzzy. A first year media production grad should have been able to clean this up better than this. The producers of the DVDs should feel very bad. Perhaps they were severely under-funded. It reminds me of those bad 100 cartoon for $5.00 DVDs you see at Walgreens or Big Lots. 1 Star here

If you get it below $10.00 like me then buy, otherwise you're over-spending.
