The Jetsons Halloween Costumes
Meet the Jetsons!
Produced by Hanna-Barbera, the Jestons were a futuristic family from the year 2062. The show debuted in September 1962 and was the first program ever to be broadcast in color on ABC.
The show was an animated family sitcom featuring the Jetson family; George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy, along with the family dog Astro and robotic maid, Rosie. Similar to The Flintstones, the Jetson family had elaborate future technology at their disposal, including artificial intelligence, holograms, gadgets and gizmos.
The original series ran between 1962 and 1963. Its continuing popularity while in reruns after its cancellation lead to two more seasons being produced that ran in syndication between 1985 and 1987. The series also received a feature film in 1990, called Jetsons: The Movie.
The head of the household, George Jetson is a loving father and husband who works at Spacely Sprockets as a digital index operator. He tends to make the wrong decision, sometimes acting very self-centered in his choices.
George is married to Jane, and father to daughter Judy and son Elroy. He has short red hair, a slim build, and a large nose. He is usually dressed in a white shirt, blue pants, and a wide green belt.
Jane Jetson is a wife and mother first and foremost, and a homemaker second. She runs the home while husband George is away at work. Jane loves fashion and gadgetry, always looking for the latest styles and newest gizmos. Jane is also a member of the Galaxy Women Historical Society.
With her fiery red hair and slim build, Jane is usually seen wearing a purple dress, purple tights, and a triangular white collar. White pearl earrings and two thin circle bracelets complete her look.
Judith "Judy" Angela Jetson
The ulta-modern futuristic teen girl, Judy Jetson is the teen daughter of George and Jane. She loves to shop and spends hours on the audiovisual telephone with her friends. Judy is also a little boy-crazy, with her parents unable to keep track of who she's dating each week. She is fond of her kid brother, Elroy.
Judy is slim like her mother, Jane, but has platinum blonde hair tied up in a high ponytail. She is usually dressed in a magenta pink top and skirt set, with pink leggings.
Elroy Jetson, Astro, and Rosie the Robot
The pint-sized six year old son of George and Jane, Elroy is an intelligent kid and an expert in all space sciences. He attends the Little Dipper School, studying astrophysics, star geometry, and space calculus. He also enjoys playing sports and spending time with the family dog, Astro.
Blond and small, Elroy usually wears a white shirt under green overalls, and a circular red collar. He also wears a green beanie cap.
Astro the Dog
Originally owned by the rich Mr Gottrockets, Tralfaz became Astro when the Jetsons adopted him. Able to speak in a humanish-tone, Astro is loyal to George and his family. He has gray fur and a white muzzle, is similar to a Great Dane, and wears a green collar.
Rosie the Robot
Although she is outdated at forty-five years old, Rosie is a member of the Jetson family and they would never trade her in for a newer model. As the household robot, Rosie cleans and cooks and sometimes acts as the household disciplinarian to Judy and Elroy. She also has given advice to the family on occasion. Rosie has a robot boyfriend named Mac.
Rosie's model number is XB-500. She is always wearing a maid's apron over her metal torso, and rolls about on a single leg mounted on a set of caster wheels.
