  • Possibly the weakest Jetsons episode I have seen, though it has grown on me the more I have watched it.

    When I first watched this episode as a college student in the 1980s, I thought, "My God, what were they thinking--fleas that make music?" I had thought this episode should be exterminated. Apparently Rosie the Robot shared my sentiments, as she went to reach for the can of bug spray. But as I watched this episode again after having ordered "The Jetsons", Season 2/Volume 1 online from Amazon, I thought, "It's still not a great episode", but I do have some sympathy for the insects because of the way they were treated by Solareeni, who now ranks as much an intergalactic crook as a Mangler Mars, Mugsy Megaton or Knuckles Nuclear. Imagine the horror the Super Jetsons will face if Solareeni ever launches a plague of deadly fleas upon the galaxy...
