Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
George . Meet George Jetson.
Cosmo Spacely. Cosmo Spacely is his name and he owned 'Spacely Sprocketts'. All of the above information can be found at www.cartoonnetwork.com.
Rosie. Rosie was her name, and watching Elroy and Judy were her game. Basically all Rosie had to do to cook was to press a button and the capsule of food came out.
Sky Pad Apartments . It was a nice futuristic apartment, with all the conviences that the animators thought would be needed in the 21st century.
September 23, 1962. 'The Jetsons' had a long run on ABC. The show ran from September 23, 1962 until sometime in 1983. Exactly when in 1983 is not stated. However, the show did run on all three networks and they even created some episodes for 'The Jetsons' in 1985 when the show went into syndication.
11:00A.M.. According to www.cartoonnetwork.com, George's work day started at 11:00A.M. He started work at that time, and still couldn't get to work on time. That must have been one comfortable bed !
Astro. Astro is his name and fetching George's slippers should have been his game. However, the beloved Astro just wanted to sleep and eat. This was one dog that hated to go out on the 'Skywalk'. I loved the episode when Elroy found Astro. When George came home from work and found that Elroy had a living, breathing dog, he decided that they needed a dog that didn't need to be fed or walked. So George purchased that robotic canine. He brought home the canine and Elroy and George had a battle of wills so to speak. George decided that which ever dog, got his slippers, and pipe and so on could stay. As it turned out the robotic dog won the contest, but George wanted to prove a point. Since they were having a lot of robberies lately due to the mysterious 'Cat Burglar', George disguised himself as this thief and crept into the apartment. But that darn stupid robotic canine couldn't tell that it was George. Here comes Astro to the rescue, while that darn robotic canine is busy biting George, Astro catches the real 'Cat Burglar' who was attempting to rob the Jetson's. Way to go Astro! Just goes to show you that robots can't replace real intelligence. :)
6 and a half. Elroy's age according to the website is 6 and a half years of age. This little tyke sure did come up with some sharp inventions. Remember when Elroy thought he created a pill that could make people fly. George took the pill to please Elroy. When George went to work, his boss, Mr. Spacely, tricked George into trying on the a special suit that his company had created, but in reality the suit belong to 'Cogswell Cogs', that suit was supposed to be resistant to fire, and water and above all it could fly. Elroy thought his pill was what made the suit fly. Mr. Spacely thought it was 'Spacely's Spocketts' invention. But only 'Cogswell Cogs' knew the truth. It was their suit that was mistakenly picked up at the cleaners ! Once again 'Cogswell Cogs' out smarted 'Spacely Sprocketts'.
Judy. Remember the song, 'Meet George Jetson, Jane his wife, daughter Judy, his boy Elroy'. That was one great cartoon. I loved each and every episode.
Jane. Jane's age was only mentioned in one episode of 'The Jetsons'. Her age is listed as 33 years old. She also loves to shop! She's my kind of lady. LOL :)
Mid-thirties. According to the website 'Meet The Jetsons', George's age is considered to be in the mid-thirties.

treadmill. Walking is the kind of exercise that promotes greater fitness and improved health in workers like George Jetson who are stuck in sedentary desk jobs. Walking helps to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduce the risk of diabetes. Unlike George's romp with Astro, walking generally brings about an improvement in mood. Rorry, Reorge!
Red, Orange, White, Blonde. I remember from High School genetics talking about simple cases of probability of hair color based on Mendell's research... however "In general, dark hair is dominant over light. But as with eye color, your baby's hair can turn out to be a beautiful range of shades between your hair color and that of your partner. It depends on the colors, or pigments, you both have in your hair and how they mix. Parents with similar hair color may have a baby with a hue that's slightly different, but within their color range.
But surprise colors can certainly appear from parents with different hair colors. This usually occurs when a recessive color gene in one parent comes through and mixes with another one. So a black-haired parent carrying a recessive gene for blond hair could potentially have a blond child if that gene is expressed and mixes with a blond gene from the other parent." -Denise Porretto in "Baby Magazine"
