Lord Farkwad: Does anyone remember the name of the African American kid that Elroy played with?
GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve: Not that it makes it any better, but if there had been any black characters on the Jetsons they would likely have been the terrible cultural stereotypes of the time. It's probably better not to have racially insensitive depictions tarnish a show many (not myself) enjoyed. It's better to be criticized for never depicting other (earth) races than depicting them offensively.
SomethingToDo: As silent-running electric vehicles are adopted more widely, the necessity of a standard warning noise to protect the visually-impaired and other pedestrians will become more apparent to authorities. The standard noise should be high-pitched for maximum efficiency- but with enough variation in pitch to allow for the source of the noise to be determined - distinctive, and suitably intrusive - but not excessively so.What I'm suggesting is that in the future all cars actually will make the Jetsons noise.
bingethinker: I guess "patent lawsuit from Apple" has become one of those memes that get you an instant greenlight no matter how senseless and moronic the headline is.
