After The Flintstones, it's perhaps no surprise they are shifting in the other direction temporally, and in giving us, in Novemeber...



The Jetsons



Boy that is one SERIOUSLY uninspiring theme sing...

With writing team Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti





More info here

They've already had a story in the Booster Gold/Flintstones special, which showed that things will be a little... weirder than the old cartoon showed, with our discovery of the origins of Rosie the Robot (Her personality is derived from George's deceased mother's memories, as a means of keeping her around after she died) A trope I notice is also shared by Synergy in Jem (Based on the personality of Jacqui Benton, Jerrica and Kimber's mother) and Dynak-X in "Defenders of the Earth" (based on Dale Arden, wife of Flash Gordon and mother of Rick Gordon... there are probably others, which is disturbing.

so... i take they are making it canon that Earth bellow the floating business is an apocalyptic wasteland? because that was my favorite "let's make this thing for childrens into something really dark and depressing" theory.

I don't know about the movie, but it was part of the premise of the episode of Harvey Birdman that they appeared in. (The least silly part.)

IIRC, in the pilot episode of the original cartoon, a narrator said the buildings could rise up to avoid thick clouds of pollution below.

I doubt that was supposed to be taken as "we screwed the planet"

Did you see the recent article about the journalist who created a chatbot based on his dying father?

When Janet Waldo died, I speculated what I would want in a live-action Jetsons. Here they are, updated.

Judy being boy-crazy over rock stars is a bit dated. Now she wants to write songs for rock stars, as in the 1989 TV movie "Rockin' with Judy Jetson."

Jane starts her own career after having to save George from the automatic dog-walker one too many times. After all, it is implied George and Jane got pregnant with Judy when they were 17.

George: "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!"
Jane: "'Jane! Stop this crazy thing!' 'Jane! Stop this crazy thing!' I have dreams too, you know!"

Rosie. Voiced by Arleen Sorkin, thrilling fans whenever she says "Mistah J."

Astro. His talking, complete with dominant R's, is explained with SCIENCE!

Orbitty. Shut up, he could work. Give him a rivalry with Astro.

Casting-wise, I suggest Alan Ruck as Spenser Cogswell.
