The Jetsons Wiki

The Vacation is the thirtieth episode of Season Two of The Jetsons, and the 54th overall episode of the series.


After a long one-hour day of pushing a button, George Jetson finally gets to call it a day and head home. He and other Spacely Space Sprockets, Inc. employees spend one hour a day, two days a week at their jobs. Elroy, Judy and Astro are watching their favorite game show, The Galaxy Guesser Game with Gus Guesser. On that show, Gus will be making a randomly generated call to someone whom, if they answer two questions correctly, win the surprise prize! The phone number generator machine generates "Venus-1234", the Jetson's home phone number. Jane luckily answers the two convenient questions with the help of Rosie and Astro. She wins the grand surprise prize, a weekend cruise on The Love Rocket, pets were forbidden from this cruise.

Elroy stuffs Astro in his suit case and takes him along for a weekend in deep space. George runs into his cheerleader girlfriend from high school: Sally Spaceout. Jane runs into her first boyfriend: Blinky Sunspot also know as "Boy-Boy Nova". Sally still has the hots for George, as does Blinky for Jane, and endlessly harass them. George can't get a word in edgewise to say he's married and Blinky apparently wants to steal Jane away. It isn't long before Elroy and Judy notice what's going on and decide it's up to them to come up with a brilliant scheme to drive away the would-be home-wreckers. Sally hides in an escape pod to catch George, Blinky coincidentally hides in the exact same pod to catch Jane, and they end up having love at first sight. Blinky and Sally later in the episode get engaged.

Astro escapes from the state room, incognito, and crashes the costume party, which only had three other entries: Judy as a princess, Elroy as a knight and Unnamed Extra as a chicken. Astro wins because he looks like a real dog.
