Orbitty is a character in The Jetsons.

About Orbitty

He is an alien of Satellitus craterus orbitus, an endangered species which has spring legs and suction cup feet. He and his kind have the special ability to turn various colors, depending on their mood, such as red when angered or modest, blue when saddened, or yellow when frightened. Their special ability can also be useful for tracking something, though the range of colors they change is only limited to red and blue when doing so, as red indicates warm/hot and blue indicates cold. He also possesses some degree of technical knowledge, as he is able to take things apart and then put them back together again.

Orbitty was picked up as an egg by Elroy Jetson. He hatched in the Jetson's house and then became a member of the Jetson family.
