Well it’s official. We’ve reached the future!

The Jetsons have always been our standard when referring to thing “in the future.” That’s what makes old George’s birthday such a milestone!

How do we know George Jetson was born in 2022? Well, a few reasons!

Number one: Wikipedia! Not the most secure source of facts, I admit, but it was there!

But OK, fine. You need something a bit more concrete? How about this deep dive piece of from Snopes, where they went though the episode to piece together chronological details. You can read it here, but in short…the series takes place 100 years in the future, and since it debuted in 1962, that means it takes place in 2062. In the show, George is deduced to be 40 years old, which means he was born in 2022!

Not gonna lie…I’m a little shook. Take from this what you will, but happy birthday to George-y boy!
