Who was chief character designer for the 80s reboot?
John Kricfalusi. FULL CIRCLE.
Whoops, layout supervisor. But his usual hubris makes it sound like he did more.
Judy Jetson was awesome, in that she served as a barometer for how incredibly out of touch Hanna Barbera was with actual youth culture.
This is helped by the fact that every damn episode involves her getting obsessed with some rock star or another. Even though the show came out in the mid-60's, her tastes were already a decade out of date, with all her favorite musicians being unfortunate attempts at an Elvis or Buddy Holly parody. And all their songs were made up of nonsensical gibberish, which might have been Joe and Bill telling us what they really thought of all this newfangled teenager music.
You'd think the second series, coming out 20 years later and being made by a new generation of artists, would be a little more savvy. Nope.

I like how the video artifacts near the end make it look like everyone in the audience is covered in diarrhea.

Later, fans were to discover that Mr. Rocker actually had a mild stroke earlier that week, and the strange lyrics he recited were the result of his brain being severely damaged. Doctors do not know if the word salad will subside anytime soon but to Judy and the rest of all you Sky fans, Sky just wants to say "brick tennis shoe Wednesday balloon gloop."

I'm gonna cover this song in front of thousands of people someday.
