Orbit City - 21 century city featured
on the sci-fi cartoon THE JETSONS.
Orbit City has all the amenities of a futuristic town like flying
cars, video phones, very dry ultra-sound showers, robot
housekeepers, and instant meals. One of Orbit City's representative
families was the Jetsons who lived in the Sky Pad Apartments.
The Jetson family includes George Jetson, 38, who works
a three-day two hour a day work week at Spacely
Sprockets; Jane, his wife; their 16-year-old daughter Judy who uses
a digital diary called DiDi and a Micro Process Personal Organizer; their
son, Elroy who attends Little Dipper School; the family dog Astro;
Orbitty, a furry gray pet alien and Rosey, their robot maid. Their
phone number is Venus 1234.
The Jetson Family
Henry Orbit is the building repair man. He maintains the Sky Pad
Apartments and cleans the flying cars in the building's garage. His
robot assistant Mack married Rosie the Robot.
The Jetson's Apartment
At work, George Jetson has no paperwork to contend with, just his
talking computer R.U.D.I. (Referential Universal Differential Indexer)
on which George gets a sore finger from punching its buttons.
George's boss, Cosmo Spacely regularly yells, "Jetson, you're
fired!!!" Spacely's competition is the Cogswell's Coggs company. Their company president likes to play golf at the Moonside Country
