Welcome to the Paleofuture blog, where we explore past visions of the future. From flying cars and jetpacks to utopias and dystopias.

The Jetsons "A Date With Jet Screamer" (1962)


The Jetsons episode A Date With Jet Screamer originally aired September 30, 1962 as the second Jetsons episode ever.

Even with flying cars and robot maids the Jetsons still utilize punch card computers to cook their instant meal. The advancements of push-button technology are obviously evident in most Jetsons episodes but it's funny to think that in 1962 punch card computers were still the technology of the future.

Below is a clip from the episode. You can watch the entire episode for free or you can find it on the DVD set The Jetsons - The Complete First Season.

UPDATE: Google has apparently never heard of fair use, so they pulled my short video clip of an episode that is available free online.
