the-jetsonsA much loved 1960’s TV series, The Jetsons portrayed a cartoon family from the future. Every aspect of the show, which followed the family’s daily life, was sleek and futuristic. They lived in a sky-high city supported by tall beams. They traveled by flying car, and utilized automated technology in every aspect of their lives. At the time, these technologies were almost unimaginable. Fifty years later, however, many of these futuristic inventions actually exist.

The Jetsons’ house was filled with futuristic objects. The family interacted with their robot maid, Rosie, in nearly every episode. She completed the majority of housework, and was accompanied by a small robot vacuum that operated on its own. These robots were an alluring proposition for housewives at the time.  Mrs. Jetson used the TV, which hung from the ceiling, to video call with her friends. Mr. Jetson often read the newspaper from the large screen of the TV, and also wore a TV wristwatch that allowed him to watch episodes of The Flintstones.  He often walked the dog on a treadmill, without ever leaving the house.
