The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania is an American animated sci-fi comedy direct-to-video film based on the 1962 TV series The Jetsons. The film was produced by Warner Bros. Animation, and distributed by Warner Home Video on March 14, 2017. It was written by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas, produced Brandon Vietti, and directed by Anthony Bell.
An accident in the past leaves WWE wrestler Big Show frozen and isn't discovered until a hundred years later, when technology has advanced substantially, with flying cars, robots, and sophisticated gadgetry. Big Show seizes this opportunity to take over Orbit City with his new wrestling robots, so the Jetsons go back to the past to get help from other WWE Superstars.

- The Moon
- Mars (mentioned)

The score was composed by Tim Kelly.

- United States: February 28, 2017 on Digital on Demand; March 14, 2017
Behind the scenes
- This is the first film not to be produced by Hanna-Barbera and involve Joseph Barbera and William Hanna. Although, Warner Bros. Animation still credits Hanna-Barbera as an existing company.
- This is the first film where Judy doesn't fall in love with a rockstar.
- Vince McMahon alludes to Scooby-Doo! and WWE: WrestleMania Mystery, another crossover DTV film with Hanna-Barbera and WWE properties, as McMahon says Astro isn't the first talking dog he's met. Both films were also produced by Brandon Vietti.
- The opening credits are an update of the opening theme song of the TV series, but unlike the TV series, the opening credits of the film are actually happening within the film's story.
- The character models of Uniblab, Henry Orbit (with brown hair), and Mrs. Spacely are reused as background characters; Mrs. Spacely and Henry Orbit's designs are used more than once (and for both white and black races).
- Miss Galaxy's model is used for an identical secretary at Spacely's, but her ethnicity and hair have been changed.
- Frank Welker uses his Scooby-Doo voice for Astro, leaving no difference between the characters whatsoever. Although in Welker's defense, Don Messick's Astro and Scooby sounded a lot alike in seasons two and three.
- This is the first time in the franchise that the police force has an African American cop.
- Elroy made a time travel equation when he invented a time machine in the TV film The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones.
- The TV series was supposed to be set in 2062, but this film is set in 2117, which means somehow 55 years have passed.
