The Jetsons

The Jetsons was a prime-time cartoon produced by Hanna-Barbera from 1962-1963.

George Jetson works 3 hours a day and 3 days a week for his short, tyrannical boss named Mr. Cosmo Spacely, owner of the company Spacely Space Sprockets. Typical episodes involve Mr. Spacely firing and rehiring or promoting and demoting George Jetson. Mr. Spacely has a competitor, H.G. Cogswell, owner of the rival company Cogswell Cogs.

Other Jetson family members include Jane Jetson, the wife and homemaker; teenage daughter Judy and genius preteen son Elroy. Housekeeping is seen to by a robot maid, Rosie.
The family dog Astro can mumble and say his words beginning with R's. Astro's catch phrases are "Ruh-roh!" and "Right, Reorge!" or "Rats Rall Right Reorge!"

My favorite episode has to be “A Date With Jet Screamer”, in which Judy Jetson wins a date with a rock star by providing the song "Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah (Means I Love You)".
