The Jetsons at 50

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 29 October 2012

It's 50 years since George Jetson and his cartoon family complete with flying car and robotic maid made their first appearance on US television. A very clever and memorable cartoon series and nothing more you might think.
But that's not the way some specialists in pop culture see it.

29 year old Matt Novak is a paleo-futurist - someone who studies the past for visions of the future...and he thinks the Jetsons shed real light on the future.
