About Orbitty

He is a small white 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 Jetsons' house and then became a member of the Jetson family.


  • He only had a non-speaking, one episode cameo in Season 3, after being so heavily introduced in Season 2.
  • He laughs in eight episodes, which include "Elroy Meets Orbitty", "Fugitive Fleas", "Dance Time", "Elroy in Wonderland", "Fantasy Planet", "Haunted Halloween", "Astro's Big Moment", and "A Jetson Christmas Carol".

  • His color-coded emotions are yellow for fear, blue for sadness (though can also mean "far away" while on tracking mode), red for submission (can also mean "close" on tracking mode), black for anger, green for envy (can also be used while talking about envy even if he's not feeling envious), and pink for affection.
