Thank goodness, another great classic cartoon coming to DVD. I grew up with this show, it only lasted one season before going to Saturday mornings, but I still remember those early mornings of a Saturday getting up before anyone else and turning on my little black and white tv set. AH...the sixties. I'm so glad this show along with shows like "The Flintstones" are coming to DVD. You won't be sorry when you purchase this DVD. Here are the air dates along with the rerun dates for the season.

I remember watching the Jetsons during its one and only prime time season on ABC way back in the early sixties. At the time I was also a big fan of the Flintstones and I loved comparing the inventions on the two shows. I remember Elroy watching a TV on a wrist band. The Watchman has made that a reality. I remember Judy watching a concert on a TV screen that took up an entire wall. The home entertainment center made that a reality. Many other futuristic ideas have also made it into our lives.
Even though I hadn't seen many of the episodes since the early sixties, I still remembered them. My favorites were the first one when Rosie the robot hits Mr. Spacely with her pineapple-upside down cake, the coming of Astro the dog and the show when George is shrunk down to size.
The images are clear and the sound is excellent. The jazz background music still excites me. My only complaint is that the episodes are preceded by a storyboard from when the shows were packaged with new episodes. I like things authentic, so the adding of a storyboard showing a character who didn't exist in the original first season of episodes bothered me for a second or two. But as soon as the episode starts, all is forgiven.
These shows are classics. Each episode brought back memories and brought a smile to my face.
With the Jetsons, Flintstones and Johnny Quest out on DVD, my cartoon wish list has been wonderfully diminished. Bring on Magilla Gorilla!!!!!!!

The animated TV series, "The Jetsons", represented a space-dwelling "flip side" to the popular cartoon "The Flintstones". Fred and Wilma Flintstone's antics were set in the Stone Age, with no modern conveniences (like, say, brakes on their bottomless automobile ... LOL!). While life with George Jetson and family is just the opposite -- taking place in the future, with a myriad of handy futuristic-looking gadgets and toys and flying cars.
I love the Jetson's "food-a-rac-a-cycle", which is a cool device that instantly dispenses about any type of food you could imagine. Just press one button, and you've got an instant steak dinner. Now THERE'S one modern convenience I'm sure every 21st-century housewife wouldn't mind having in their kitchens today! Of course, the darn thing was always breaking down, or spitting out the wrong meals, or something of the sort, to drive George crazy! But that was part of the fun -- seeing George in a frantic or stressed-out state.
There are 24 episodes of "The Jetsons" included in this deluxe and very attractive 4-Disc DVD boxed set from Warner Home Video. These episodes are all from the 1962-1963 debut season of the animated series. Which, in my view, is actually the ONLY season from what could be termed the "Original" series of "The Jetsons". The series was revived more than two decades later, in 1984, with another 42 episodes produced and aired during the 1984-1985 TV season. And the show was resurrected yet again two years later, with an additional 9 "Jetsons" episodes airing in September and October of 1987.
These two later versions of the series did a good job (IMO) of re-establishing the link with the original '62 shows and format.

As other reviewers mentioned here, the 'second season' of "The Jetsons" was created in the 1980s, with a syndicated show. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it wasn't really "The Jetsons", as this 'first season' set offers. The original(and, in my mind, only) Jetsons is the one offered here. It debuted, in primetime, on ABC, in 1962. It was one of several primetime animated series attempts. Bugs Bunny and his Warner's friends, The Flintstones clan, Top Cat and buds, and Bullwinkle were others(with the Flintstones being the most successful-until the pinnacle of network primetime animation came around: "The Simpsons", now entering its 18th season!!?). "The Jetsons" then ran on Saturday mornings for four years-first on ABC, then CBS, then, in its final two years, on NBC. CBS picked it up, again, in 1969, for 2 years. Then, NBC ran it throughout the early 70s and, again, fairly consistantly from 1979-83. Believe it or not, ALL of these runs were these original episodes from the first season, played over and over and over, again.

It was in 1985 that the 'second season' was produced, with the 'third' offered in 1987-both of these were syndicated entries, and neither was very good(like most attempts at bringing back shows in the 80s). So, if you've got this first season, you've got "The Jetsons", basically. If you don't have it, you could easily acquire "The Jetsons: the Complete Series" by purchasing this, realistically. Die-hards and completists may argue with me on this, but buyer beware, the shows are lousy later in the run and all the great voice actors of the sixties program(who voiced other Hanna-Barbera's, as well) are all long gone. It's just not "The Jetsons". Sorry.
