A Great family Comedy

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (12 ):

All in all, The Jetsons have an exemplary family relationship. Even though the shows values are a little behind the times for today's standards, the characters exude mutual respect -- and that's something that people and families from all walks of life can learn from.

The show's problem areas are few and far between, and those that do exist can be attributed to how much times have changed since the show premiered in 1962. For example, "daughter Judy" is portrayed as boy-crazy and flaky, while her brother Elroy is a genius. Some would consider these roles sexist, since many attractive women in today's society are both boy crazy and intelligent and goal oriented.
