50 years ago, the Jetsons

The Jetsons only ran for a single season, but offered an influential glimpse of the future to 1962 America.

According to that Smithsonian article, the series drew heavily on contemporary futurism.

 

I wonder, too, how the show fed into Baby Boomers’ conception of the future.
