Jane Jetson is one of the main characters of the Jetsons animated franchise. Her voice was originated by Penny Singleton.

Jane is the matriarch of the Jetsons, a family from the year 2062. Although a typical housewife, she does very little work due to all the futuristic appliances that are either automated or require the single push of a button. Despite this, she hired a robot maid called Rosie to help out with the chores.

Character description

Jane has a slender body with medium-length red hair. Unlike her husband, she has a small nose. She also wears red-pink lipstick, and wears a purple dress with a white triangular shaped collar.

In terms of personality, Jane is a caring mother of her family. Since she is a homemaker in the future, she spends most of her days taking care of the household using its plentiful gadgets. Her favorite pastime involves shopping for new appliances and fashion. Although she loves both her family and George, Jane is a dutiful wife who always tries to make life as pleasant as possible for the two of them.

Behind the scenes

In popular culture

  • Although having no part in the actual movie, Jane, along with George and Astro, was featured on the poster of the 1985 film D.A.R.Y.L. The inclusion of the family may represent something Daryl is missing out on, while Paramount Pictures may have included it as an Easter egg as they had acquired the rights the same year for what became an undeveloped live-action movie.
  • In the Full House episode "The First Day at School," Danny has bought a Jetsons lunch box for Stephanie's first day of kindergarten. Joey makes the flying car sound effects as he takes it to her. He then pretends to be George saying hello to Jane, Elroy, and Astro. Stephanie uses it again in "Joey's Place."
  • In The Ren & Stimpy Show episode "The Big Shot!," Stimpy becomes the co-star of Muddy Mudskipper, where they reenact one of the many chase sequences between Yogi and Ranger Smith, respectively. Muddy tells Stimpy to get his hand out of the picnic basket, while Stimpy just spouts random quotes originally like "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!"
  • In The Fairly OddParents TV movie Channel Chasers (part 1), the end credits are recreated when Tony Futurelli gives his dog a walk on the treadmill until it gets distracted by a cat and chases it, causing Tony to trip and get trapped spinning around on the treadmill, making him call out, "Maria! Get me off this crazy thing!"
  • In the Drawn Together episode "A Tale of Two Cows," she is killed by Live Action Cow alongside her family.
  • George, alongside Jane, Rosie, Judy, and Elroy, appears as posters in the Kanye West music video for "Heartless."
  • In the Steven Universe episode "Greg the Babysitter," when Greg and Sour Cream get stuck on the Ferris wheel, he yells for Rose to "get him off this crazy thing."
  • For the 2021 Halloween special of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Kelly Ripa was dressed as Jane.

Family Guy

  • "Brian in Love:" We get to see what happens after the closing titles, when George eventually finds his way back inside the house after being left screaming for Jane on the treadmill, with bruises and a torn shirt. He excuses Elroy to leave, so he can chastise Jane for not hearing his cries for help. Jane can only apologize, although she is not forgiven. D.D. Howard voices Jane.
  • "Meet the Quagmires:" Peter and Brian's tampering with the timeline has caused them to get flying cars, which Brian attributes to Al Gore being in office. The scene then shifts to an authentic take in the opening theme song where George drops off everyone at their destinations, only this time George stops Jane from taking his wallet when she doesn't accept the money he gives her. She says she was just going to buy groceries, but George cries, "Bullcrap!" Immediately after when Peter and Brian discuss how to get Death's attention (who transported them into the past to begin with), Jane's body drops to the ground, with her money falling on top of her dead body and the sound of George's space car swooshing away. Bergman and Beth Littleford voice George and Jane, respectively.
  • "Play It Again, Brian:" A caricaturist interprets Lois and Brian as Jane and Snoopy, respectively.
