The Jetsons Season 3 Review

The third season of The Jetsons is a solid conclusion to such a charming Hanna Barbera show.

You hear that music, Mr. Spacely?

That’s my cue to dance with my daughter!

The Jetsons Season 3 Review

Because the third season consists of only ten episodes, this review is thus going to be much shorter in length than the previous two. Comparing it with the other two, it is of course still infinitely inferior to the first classic season but it is somewhat better than the previous weaker season. I give the two a similar rating, but this is a better, shorter and more concise season.

Crime Games is such a mediocre opening of the season with a tired, uninspired gangster storyline. I dislike the gangster genre and I did not care for this one either. And Elroy having some sort of wild adventure is overly familiar by now.

ASTROnomical I.Q. finds Astro becoming a genius and attending a trivia show. In my opinion, this is a pretty solid episode with some wonderful moments, but having in mind that Astro is so great, the episode is never as great or as fun as he is.

The Jetsons Season 3 Review

9 to 5 to 9 finds Judy taking the responsibility and starting to work in order to earn money for a new car. As Judy-centric episodes go, this is a rather solid one with a good work ethic message. Invisibly Yours, George, on the other hand, finds George becoming invisible to a typically cliched, cartoon outcome.

Father/Daugher Dance is certainly one of the better Jetsons episodes and one of the most wonderful. It emphasizes the relationship between these two to great heights and the ending is truly heartwarming. Clean as a Hound’s Teeth is ridiculous in its premise where George gets dog’s teeth. This is something that never would happen in a much more plausible, classic first season.

Wedding Bells for Rosey is pretty much as Spacely put it – a robot soap opera. And that is of course done for better and for worse, but Rosie is reliably great. The Odd Pod finds the family getting their home wrecked by an exotic plant to decidedly mixed results.

Two Many Georges is about George getting himself cloned and still finding out that his family prefers his real self. It is not a great episode as it is familiar, but still sweet. Spacely for a Day is one of the better episodes of this season as it is nice seeing Spacely start to appreciate George for once. It is a satisfying finale to the season and the entire series.

Overall, I liked this season more than the previous one. It has its weaker, but also very good, competent episodes. Although I only loved the first season, I am still going to miss hanging out with The Jetsons who are such a fun, loving family.

Worst Episodes: Crime Games and Clean as a Hound’s Tooth.

Best Episodes: Father/Daughter Dance and Spacely for a Day.

My Rating – 3.6
