#1 Countdown: The Jetsons

Two words: Flying cars
Two more: Robot housekeepers
Two more: Food synthesizers

We already have the visaphones (web cams/ camera phones/ video phones), moving side walks (ever been in an airport or to Vegas?).
Electric diary Didi? We call it a PDA.
Puppy mill? Treadmill.
Rosie? Asimo
And don't forget Aibo.

Mrs. Jetson put a bubble over her head and her hair was done in a snap. The washing/dry machine washed, dried and folded the clothes in seconds.

I know The Jetsons is a cartoon and that I can't have every thing from a cartoon BUT the previous list is to show people that we do get a lot of our technological wants and innovations from movies, TV shows and yes cartoons.

At the beginning of the 'thon I had a way more intelligent explanation about why this is the most influential science fiction TV show. It is a really compelling arguement in my head. Still is but in this late hour, sleep prevails.

The Jetsons is number one dammit. I want my flying car before I die.

GREATEST #1 EVER! And, you are SO right about its influence on technology and pop culture. We take this show for granted, but, the tech we saw on this show, along with tech we saw on Star Trek, was what inspired the innovators of today!
