Remember the Jetsons? While the Flintstones chronicled a Stone Age family with work powered by birds and dinosaurs, the Jetsons symbolized the future. The show aired with catchy music from 1962 to 1963, then later in syndication, with new episodes, in 1985 to 1987. While the Flintstones rolled around in crude vehicles with stone wheels, the Jetsons rode high over the city buildings in airborne spacecraft. Robots and automation enriched the Jetsons’ lives.
