The Jetsons is an American animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera. Originally airing in primetime from September 23, 1962, to March 17, 1963, it later changed to syndication, with new episodes from 1985 to 1987 as part of The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera block. It was Hanna-Barbera's Space Age counterpart to The Flintstones.

History

The Jetsons is not a meme inherently, but it is memorable as being the opposite of The Flintstones, as well as existing in the same continuity as that show and even making a guest appearance in the NES game The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy, which 7 GRAND DAD is a bootleg of.

Prior to 9/11 2016, it was forbidden to use any jokes relating to The Jetsons or its theme in a high quality rip due to an excessive amount of requests for its use. The only two references to The Jetsons were during April Fools' Day 2016 to post an unedited track and in "Main Theme - Superman 64", which revealed that it is banned.

The team decided several months in advance to only use The Jetsons on 9/11. It's unknown why 9/11 was chosen, but it's speculated that it could be because of SiIvaGunner's in-universe hatred for the show,[1] the name of George Jetson referring to George Bush (the U.S. president during 9/11), or simply because of the word "Jet".

In "[The SilvaGunner Timeline: A Summary of Events]", it is explained that The Jetsons debuted on 9/11, but they crashed into a tower and were never seen again. Since this is part of the channel's lore, The Jetsons has remained banned from submissions.[2]

Rips

The Jetsons was used in many of the rips uploaded on 9/11 2016 and thus were subsequently all wiped from the channel. In these rips, the theme song was used for melody changes as a counterpart to how "Meet the Flintstones" is used in rips.

As for rips that can still be found and viewed on the SiIvaGunner channel, there are only four that use this meme, all of them being medley rips, and all of them relating to 2016 channel events. The first two are "CACHE BOSS - BIT.TRIP FLUX" and "File Select Fusion" during the Channel Ending, and the next two are "Stage Select - Mega Man 3" for Christmas 2016 and its 2020 updated version "Stage Select (Full Version) - Mega Man 3".

The only other references to The Jetsons on the channel are to mention that it is banned. When rules for submitting rips are shared, "anything related to The Jetsons" is always listed as banned. In the King for Another Day Tournament, Johnny Bravo's source list had Hanna-Barbera cartoons, but he was explicitly forbidden from using any music from The Jetsons (as well as The Flintstones). During the Space Jam Charity SLAM! livestreams, "requests of anything related to The Jetsons" were listed as one of the types of requests which would be automatically rejected.[3]

Trivia

  • The Jetsons is the only non-mashup source to be banned.
  • MtH has noted that the theme song is difficult to use in a rip, similar to Family Guy and The Simpsons.[2]
