Now this is all about cartoons, fun, techno, futuristic, mod, technicolor, witty, all of that. You could develop a diagram of Rosey the Robot, whiz around in a flying car, talk about the impact of technology on your cooking habits or perhaps develop a storyboard for your own cartoon. You can use also use the graphic as part of your prompt.
Per Wikipedia, "While the Flintstones live in a world with machines powered by birds and dinosaurs, the Jetsons live in a futuristic utopia of elaborate robotic contraptions, aliens, holograms, and whimsical inventions."
"So many wonderful robots come to mind: maschinemensch from Fritz Leiber’s Metropolis, the robot on Lost in Space, the store mannekins in the “After Hours” episode of the Twilight Zone, but the coolest, of course, is the Jetson’s maid, Rosie. Along with the flying car, Rosie represents the most important of science fiction’s promises. She is the holy grail of technological efforts as far as I’m concerned. Even though I’m fond of saying we are living in the age of science fiction, until Rosie is doing my dishes, that statement is not correct."
Sue Lange, What Are The Coolest Robots in Science Fiction?
My own definition of [science fiction] comes in two distinct parts. First, while the story’s world is not the same as the author’s, there is some explicit or implicit congruency between the story’s universe and the author’s. There is a map from here to there, even if it’s to go back to 1908 Siberia and take a hard right at Tunguska. Second, and more important, the story is written from the perspective that the universe runs by predictable and knowable laws, and those laws are the same as those in the author’s universe. If they differ at all, the difference must be explained in such a way that the story doesn’t lose its connection to the author’s universe."

Also, per the Slang Dictionary, Jetsonian means "Relating to a time in the future, similar to that on the classic television show The Jetsons."
