This will be the final post of the TV/Movie kick I’ve been on lately. But the idea here is interesting.

Everyone knows Rosey The Robot, from The Jetsons. The XB-500 clearance model robo-maid that takes care of the house, handles Elroy, and adds a little sass to every episode?

Yeah, that’s the one.

So here’s the twist with today’s 100…

The Jetsons first aired in 1962. The role of women in its future was pretty constrained by modern standards. Think delicate little housewives and secretaries for the Mr. Spacely’s of the world. And while i’m happy they got it wrong, I wrote to that future rather than ours. Mostly to test some of the classic direct response lines. Please pardon any down-playing of women’s importance. These lines were written specifically for Jane.

Sexism aside, here are 100 lines about Rosey The Robot:

Overall: Just OK. The lines are a little generic. I was hoping for better results.

Lessons: Like the other fake products & services, it’s tough to not have any reviews to dig into. I skimmed a few housekeeping & au pair sites, but never really found the pain points.

  • It didn’t help that Rosie is an older model and was purchased as a discounted floor model because George couldn’t afford a newer robot
  • We’re still using feather dusters in the future?
  • In a new comic series, Rosie’s personality is replaced with the uploaded consciousness of George’s deceased mother. Creepy!
  • I wanted to push more into the “helping the family” aspect a few times, but I didn’t like downplaying the role of women. It just felt wrong
  • I like the term “push-button living” that was used by the series. You may have noticed that phrase a few times. Totally swiping that.
