Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons

Rosie the Robot, a Hallmark Keepsake ornament is a cool sci-fi robot from the popular cartoon “The Jetsons”.  The Jetsons was a show I always watched as a kid on Saturday mornings.  I was surprised to find out that the 1962-63 series only made 24 episodes.  Some interesting trivia, The Jetsons was the first show that ABC-TV broadcast in color.  The Jetsons only lasted for one season.  It was on Sunday nights against the very popular show “The Wonderful world of Disney”, so it got canceled but lived on in syndication where it did very well.  The Jetsons was eventually brought back in 1985 where they made an additional 40 episodes.  Another interesting trivia piece was Rosie only appeared twice in the 1962 series but was featured much more often in the 1985 series.
