The Jetsons featured 10 robots during its television run in the 1960’s. The robots could shake out a rug, cook, vacuum, do laundry or bathe and clothe their owners in less than 10 seconds. The main robot character, Rosie, had a wonderful and warm demeanor, personifying a hunk of metal we’ve been romanticizing for almost 60 years. She represented an era that would be easier, with robots taking care of menial tasks and waiting on us, hand and foot.
The robot characters on The Jetsons were set in 2062, 100 years before the show aired. So that makes us … 44 years early!
