George Jetson character jug produced in Korea by Vandor of Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1990. George Jetson is a character on The Jetsons, an American animated comic science fiction sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and first broadcast in prime time on ABC in 1962-63. George is the 40-year-old head of the Jetson family. He is the husband of Jane Jetson and the father of teenage daughter Judy and elementary school aged son Elroy. George is a slim man of average height with short red hair and a cartoonishly large nose. His personality is that of a well-meaning, caring father, but he is often befuddled and stressed out by the problems of both his work and family lives. As The Jetsons was partially based on the comic strip Blondie, George was based on that strip's lead character, Dagwood Bumstead. George's most famous catchphrase is "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!" but is also known for frequently uttering the phrase "Hooba-dooba-dooba!" to express wonder or astonishment.
