The Space Car is the fourth episode of Season One of The Jetsons.


George and Jane are looking for a new flying car. Meanwhile, the bank robber, Knuckles Nuclear (and his woman partner), hides out at the Jetsons' apartment. Problems arise when Henry Orbit's old truck causes smoke in the garage, causing George and Jane to accidentally drive off in Knuckles Nuclear's flying car with the stolen money, and the police are after them.
