The Jetsons premiered in prime time on ABC on September 23, 1962 when much of the public was seeing and test-driving the 1963 Studebaker Avanti for the first time. The Jetsons consisted of the beleagured bread-winner George, loving wife Jane, hip teenage daughter Judy, fun-loving pre-teen son Elroy, and loyal dog Astro. Also in the cast were robot maid Rosie, George's irritable boss Mr. Spacely, Mr. Spacely's rival Mr. Cogswell, and handyman Henry. Although only one season's worth of episodes was initially produced for primetime, the show eventually aired on and off on all three networks on Saturday mornings from 1963 to 1983. Additional episodes (featuring new family pet Orbitty) were produced for syndication in 1985.
