Rockin’ with Judy Jetson was a musical made-for-TV movie produced by Hanna-Barbera back in 1988. It was aired in syndication as a part of the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 series. A bunch of years ago it was released on VHS and I picked up a copy of it when it went into rotation at the video store where I worked at the time. Sadly after the VHS release, no DVD release followed, until now. The Warner Archive is finally releasing this piece of Jetsons’ history as part of their Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection.
The plot you ask?
Despite father George’s disapproval, Judy Jetson (voiced by Janet Waldo) is totally into Sky Rocker, the biggest intergalactic rock star around. When the teen icon announces a surprise concert, Judy writes a super awesome song and sends it to him. And – oops – the song is accidentally switched with an evil magic message from music-hating witch Felonia Funk. Bummer for Judy! Then Felonia goes one diabolical step further: she kidnaps Sky Rocker. What a buzz kill – but don’t freak out yet! Judy and her friends – along with brother Elroy, family dog Astro and music-loving aliens named Zoomies – set out to save Sky themselves. Is Judy Jetson the coolest Space Age teenage cartoon star ever? With songs like Gleep Gorp, Jupiter Jump, Rockin’ Round the Galaxy, Shootin’ Star and Surfin’ in Space, the feature-length animated Rockin’ with Judy Jetson is a tunefully fun blast not to be surpassed!
Judy will be Judy…
If your a Jetsons’ fan this is definitely a DVD you will want to add to your collection. It is a well animated 80s style Jetsons with Waldo in the role she always knocked out of the park and to boot has some catchy music. So drop by the Warner Archive and order yourself a copy today.
