George Jetson on the Drums

George can't treadmill

“Jane, stop this crazy thing!”

Coming from a Hanna-Barbera future, George Jetson, father of 2 and expert treadmill runner, is Redhead of the Day!

(See the Space Donkey of the Day!)

He’s an classic character who’s up there with Fred Flintstone and Peter Griffin. In my view, The Jetsons ran was basically from the original prime-time run in the 60s to the Orbity-filled syndication years of the 80s through The Movie, released by Universal in 1990. George Jetson lives a very grueling life. Let’s not stay still for nostalgia. Check out his nifty morning routine:

(See RHM’s other profiles of ginger dads!)

Like every working man, he has to properly handle stress at his job. He makes a living doing the all-American, mind-numbing pushing of buttons to make the sprockets that get America running. His boss, Mr. Spacely also gives him lots of grief:

After dodging the threat of termination, he returns home to his wife, the loving, caring Jane. Former Hanna-Barbera employee Seth McFarlane uncovered footage of how the couple manages finances:

George also has an enduring, pleasant with his two children, Judy and his boy Elroy. Let’s look at some father-son and father-daughter bonding moments…

HOLD ON! WHY ARE YOU PICKING ON MISTAH J!

I know that voice. It’s more nasally New Yorker than Rosie O’Donnell, it’s…

YES! IT IS I, RISOTTO THE ROBOT, ROSIE’S SISTER!

Oh, hello, Ms. Risotto. You sound so familiar. What brings you here?

WHY MUST YOU MAKE EMBARRASSING PAGES ABOUT DECENT REDHEADS?

It’s all just fun, Risotto.

YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT! YOU MADE FUN OF THAT NICE BOY, MR. SUMMERS. THAT NICE BOY HAS BROWN HAIR!

We all make mistakes. 1990s cartoons will do that.

MISTAKES? YOU ARE PROGRAMMED TO GET EVERY DETAIL CORRECT.

I’m only human and we have to capacity to forgive, so…

FORGIVE? MY LAST LOVER B.B. RODRIGUEZ TALKED ALL ABOUT THAT AND HE STOPPED GIVING ME THE TIME OF DAY.

Sorry to hear that. But this is not the space to air dirty laundry.

DIRTY? THAT’S WHAT MY SISTER ROSIE CALLED ME. SHE HAD THE NERVE! THE NERVE TO GET ANGRY AT MISTAH J AFTER EVERYTHING HE DID. clickclackbeepboop

Where Were We?

In the final analysis, thanks for a crappy future, Hanna-Barbera! Also, 80s pop sensation Tiffany was a strange choice to play Judy Jetson in the movie. Uh, and apologies to Jane Jetson & Scott Summers.

(Rainbow) Space Donkey of the Day:


Original video description:

A daft wee game I made for Christmas.

You play as a rainbow space donkey, separated from your herd. Unfortunately you’re in a part of space that’s full of murderous evil Santas, who would like nothing more than to punch you in the nose. The aim is to make your way back to your herd without dying.

Complete with newtonian physics, a Binding of Isaac-style item system, and *secret things*.

It’s free and open source, and available for Windows, Linux, and OSX.
