The Jetsons Live Action Pilot Planned For ABC In The United States

According to entertainment industry news websites – Variety and Deadline, American national broadcaster – ABC has ordered a put pilot for a potential live-action show based on Hanna-Barbera’s space age animated sitcom – The Jetsons. A put pilot is a pilot that the network (in this case, ABC) has agreed to air either as a special or series, not airing the pilot will incur a financial penalty and in a majority of cases, it also means that it will become a full series.

The live-action sitcom will have a multi-camera setup with the story set 100 years into the future. Like the classic cartoon which also premiered on ABC in 1963 (with a 41 episode revival from 1985 for syndication), the show will follow the daily lives of George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy Jetson along with their robot maid Rosie and family dog Astro. The show also had an animated movie and even had a crossover with their stone age counterparts – The Flintstones.

Before the announcement of the live-action pilot, the latest Jetsons project from Warner Bros. was the straight-to-DVD release of The Jetsons and WWE: Robo-WrestleMania! this year.

Back To The Future co-creator and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? director – Robert Zemeckis will executive produce along with Jack Rapke under the Compari Entertainment brand. Gary Janetti, who has written for and produced shows including Fox’s animated sitcom – Family Guy and co-creator of the British comedy series Vicious, will write and executive produce. Compari Entertainment’s Jackie Levine will serve as a co-executive producer. Warner Bros. Television will produce the show in association with Nickelby Inc. and Compari.

The Amazing World Of Gumball Appeared On Jimmy Kimmel Live

This week, a short clip from Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball appeared in an episode of ABC’s late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the clip was used in a humorous segment called “Unnecessary Censorship”. The clip that was used came from the episode “The Upgrade”, where Gumball and Darwin take Bobert the Robot to the Bobert Store for a software downgrade. As the name of the segment suggests, Gumball’s words are unnecessarily censored.

The actual dialogue from the actual episode, censored words in bold:

Gumball: Uh, what? What’s that?

Cody (Bobert Store Assistant): That would be my behind, sir.

Gumball: Oh. What’s that, then? (Removed from the clip)

Cody: That would be my nose, sir. (Removed from the clip)

Gumball: And that?

Cody (Bobert Store Assistant): That’s my ponytail.

Gumball: Ew! I can’t believe I touched a ponytail with my bare hands!

In the South Park season 20 finale – “The End Of Serialization As We Know It” which aired last November on Comedy Central, The Amazing World of Gumball was listed in Ike’s (Kyle’s little brother) internet search history.

On Monday this week (6/02/2017), The Amazing World of Gumball episode – “The Copycats” premiered on Cartoon Network USA. The episode featured characters based from the Chinese Gumball ripoff – Miracle Star, which not only features similar character designs, but also the similarities in scenes and the whole mixed-media concept from the show. In the episode, Chi Chi (a goat) and Ribbit (a frog) are copycat versions of Gumball and Darwin and they literally copy everything they do. Miracle Star was “created” by Sanyuan Group to promote their milk product of the same name in China.

This was also the last episode Jacob Hopkins and Terrell Ransom Jr. voiced Gumball and Darwin, and was Nicolas Cantu’s and Donielle T. Hansley Jr.’s first episode voicing the two main characters.
