The Jetsons - The 1985 Jetsons 'Revival' Cartoons are Coming to DVD at Last!


Mark Evanier posts word at his blog that he's recorded some extras for an upcoming release

Back in May 2004, Warner Home Video released The Jetsons - Season 1 on DVD. These are the original 24 cartoons produced from 1962-63. In 1985, Warner revived the program and continued with a long-delayed second season that consisted of 41 episodes, and a third season of 10 episodes. Those 51 cartoons, which introduced family pet "Orbitty" and where shown in syndication, have never been released on DVD. But now it looks like they're on the way!

The other night, this past Friday evening, animation expert Mark Evanier posted at his blog a bit called "How I Spent Today." In it, he explains how in the afternoon he went "out to the Warner Brothers lot to be interviewed for little behind-the-scenes videos that will appear on two upcoming DVDs of cartoon shows." One of those shows was Plastic Man, which we've posted news about separately. The other was "the 1985 syndicated Jetsons revival"!

Head over to Mark's blog for all the details about how he only worked on the 1985 show "for about an hour," and why. Our thanks to Mark for the post, and also to reader Dave De Silva for the heads-up about his finding the info over there. And stay tuned, because we'll update you further as more developments about this upcoming release occur!
