George Jetson Of 'The Jetsons' Was Born On July 31, 2022, According To A Fan On Twitter

'The Jetsons'—which follows a family living in the future—debuted on ABC on September 23, 1962.

According to a fan on Twitter, George Jetson from the iconic 1960s television series The Jetsons was born on Sunday, July 31, 2022.

On Thursday, a fan named Brendan Kergin shared a picture from the character's online fan page highlighting his birthday amongst other details like George's father's and wife's names and his catchphrase: "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!".

"I don't mean to alarm anyone, but someone is about to give birth to George Jetson," Kergin wrote with the image on Twitter.



 

The iconic Hanna-Barbera Production series debuted on September 23, 1962, on ABC portraying a hilarious image of the future in 100 years’ time. The patriarch George Jetson is the husband of Jane, the father of teenage daughter Judy and elementary school-aged son Elroy, and the owner of a dog named Astro. The family lived in the Skypad Apartments in Orbit City in 2062 with robot servants, flying saucer-like cars, and moving sidewalks. As Earth had become too polluted, everyone lived in the sky in apartment buildings set on giant poles.



 

The show's plotline was comical and had a silly charm to it and it “stands as the single most important piece of 20th century futurism,” according to Smithsonian magazine. “We still speak about the future in Jetsons terms,” Jared Bahir Browsh, author of the 2021 book Hanna-Barbera: A History, explained.



 

Though no specific birthdate for George Jetson was ever seemingly revealed, MeTV has said that promotional materials and articles at the time of its premiere set the Jetsons 100 years into the future, placing the show’s setting in 2062. In the season's fifteenth episode, titled Test Pilot, George has an existential crisis after he thinks he is dying and decides to become a test pilot for a supposedly indestructible suit. During the episode, George goes to the doctor, who claims that he should "live to be 150." Sometime later, after risking his life in a series of daredevil stunts, George tells his boss, Mr. Spacely, "I've got 110 good years ahead of me," placing him at 40 years old. So, it sounds like 2022 would be the correct birth year for George Jetson.

Fans on Twitter went wild with memes and humorous reactions to the news. "FINALLY The Jetsons are catching up to reality!!! WHERE'S MY FLYING CAR?!?!?!?!" one Twitter user wrote in response to Kergin's tweet.



 

"Well I feel old now," added another user. "George Jetson is going to be born this Sunday. The Jetsons we're one of my favorite shows growing up. I thought by now we'd have flying cars and space sprockets. #80skid"

Adding to the tweet another user wrote: “Me and the boys on our way to witness the birth of George Jetson.”
