Product Review

Positives

Box & storage

  • The cover box is very stylish and the inside box containing the 4 DVDs is also decorated inside out with the Jetsons. The 4 DVDs stay secured in the inside box.

DVD/case

  • All the DVD cases and the DVD have great designs on them. And the DVD menu is easy to navigate.

Video & Audio

  • The episodes play back to back. You will be tempted to see all episodes in a row.
  • They look the same as what was originally aired on television

Negatives

DVD/case

  • For Blu-ray lovers, you will not find that in this set.

Video & Audio

  • The full frame of all DVDs is 1:33.1 which is supposed to be Traditional television & computer monitor standard but on my flat screen (which has a 1:85.1 full frame) I don’t see it full screen.

Personal experience

All DVDs in the set worked well and the box arrived in great condition. Love this set!

Some people like the sixties episodes better than the eighties.

The sixties episodes were about the issues George and Jane encounter everyday as a married couple.

The writers thought to change that in the eighties episodes so children could relate to the stories.

That is why in the eighties episodes there is more of Rosie and Elroy has more adventures.

I personally like both a lot but if I had to choose I still prefer the first season.

Final Overview

Overall Rating

I liked the  cover box and the DVD carrying box and I had no issues with it. Box & Storage final rating: 100%

The DVD cases and the DVDs have great designs on them and I appreciated the investment in the design but I just wish it to be available in more formats. DVDs/DVD Cases final rating: 98%

It’s true that I get to see it as I remembered it and I have no issues with that but I just wish it was available in full screen. Further I had no issues with the audio. The surround sound is great. Video & Audio final rating: 95%

The final overall rating for this product is 98%

Recommendation

 

There are different prices for this product on Amazon starting from $14 to $30 and ebay starting from $10 to $60 (as noted by February 26, 2017). You can find both brand new and second hand (used) versions of this product. In the end you should make the choice that suits you best but just make sure you read all the information provided by sellers online.

As I know many of you don’t have time to perform much research here is one recommended seller from ebay where you can buy a Brand New DVD set:

  • Best Seller: zuber ranked Top Rated Plus seller with 99.4% positive feedback from customers.
  • Returns: 30 days Money back Return Policy
  • Guarantees: ebay Money Back Guarantee
  • Product Condition: Brand New (the item that has never been opened or removed from the manufacturer’s sealing).
  • Shipping: Free Shipping

 

This product is a must have for Jetsons Fans who watched it as a Saturday morning cartoon. Feel safe to show it to a child of any age (they might even learn a lesson or two from it). For any adults watching it the stories are a bit cheesy at times but they are still solid stories about the troubles a futuristic family might face, at least what people in the sixties thought they might be facing.

  1. Wow, I never knew the Jetsons was out in the 60s. I am 38 so that is before my time but the Jetsons was one of my favorite shows as a child. $20 is pretty cheap for the first season. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Hi Nicole,

      I didn’t know either. When researching about the show I got to know that it aired just 24 episodes after its debut on Sunday September 23, 1962 but more episodes were made in the mid 1980s adding a second (21 episodes) and third season (10 episodes). Will do a review of the second season soon.
      I was looking for a box set with all seasons but so far they sell each season as a separated product.

  2. Isn’t it crazy how now most of the stuff we see in the Jetson’s house is actually possible? I used to think if I ever saw video calling I’d know it was the future. Now it seems like nothing lol. Great post.

    1. Hi Eric,
      Yes you are right: those things were just fantasy then (at least that is what we were told when we were kids). Now we have home entertainment systems (like the movies) at home and many other things.
