If it hadn't been for Fred Silverman passing over the much proposed Jetsons spin-off (with Teenage Elroy and Adult Judy) for Partridge Family 2200 A.D. (I would've preferred Teen Jetsons), think of the many Jetsons Saturday AM spin-offs would we have gotten?
*The Judy and Elroy Show (Hanna-Barbera/Columbia Pictures Television) CBS 1974-75
*The Jetsons' Comedy Hour (Hanna-Barbera/Columbia Pictures Television) CBS 1975-76
*The New George & Jane Show (Hanna-Barbera) NBC 1979 (which would've reverted Judy back to a teenager, and Elroy as a preteen)
*George & Jane Meet The Invisible Girl (Hanna-Barbera/Marvel Comics) NBC 1979
*George & Jane Meet Casper & The Angels (Hanna-Barbera/Harvey Entertainment Group) NBC 1979-80
*The Jetsons Comedy Show (Hanna-Barbera/Harvey Entertainment Group) NBC 1980-82 (Orbit City Cops (with Casper and Hairy Scarey from Casper & The Angels), Ricochet Rabbit & Droop-A-Long, The Frankensons, Space Ghost (new segments which would be shifted over to Space Stars the following year), Judy, Elroy & Astro (as teen detectives solving Scooby-Doo style mysteries), Orbitcat & Outermouse etc...) which would've been shifted over to an afternoon spot (and reduced to a hour-long format) to make way for The Smurfs & Space Stars the following year.
*The Jetsons' Funnies (Hanna-Barbera/Harvey Entertainment Group) NBC 1982-84 (which would've compromised of rebroadcasts of The Jetsons' Comedy Show segments along with newer segments)
and we would've gotten some prime-time TV specials as well
*A Jetson Christmas (or Christmas George)
*The Jetsons: Jogging Fever
*The Jetsons: George's New Neighbors
*The Jetsons: Jet-a-Lympics '80 (parody of the Olympics and Battle of the Network Stars)
*The Jetsons Meet Orbitula and Frankenson
*The Jetsons Meet the Space Kidettes (they would've bring them back for a special)
*The Jetsons: George's Last Fling
*The Jetsons: Welcome Back Astro (a play on "Welcome Back, Kotter")
plus George Jetson (George O'Hanlon) would've made cameo appearances (as a guest commentator or an extra) on "Laff-A-Lympics" (much like Fred Flintstone did).
It would've been possible If Mr. Silverman changed his mind.

But we'd never know, as the much-proposed Jetsons spin-off ("The Judy and Elroy Show") got changed to Partridge Family, 2200 A.D. (after a round of changes made by then head of CBS, Fred Silverman) and that's how most Baby Boomers looked at it.

Where did you about that Partridge Family, 2200 AD was originally conceived as a Jetsons spinoff?

Artwork for the canned Jetsons spin-off can be seen here:

In one of those photos, notice how they have an "Astro pup" which was a precursor to Scrappy-Doo (that was done by Willie Ito, who did most of the layout art and character designs).

Of the 3 Madagascar shows we have, All Hail King Julien stands out with its title and location. Unlike The Penguins Of Madagascar and Madagascar: A Little Wild, this one takes place on Madagascar while the others are in New York through an alternate continuity. Conversely, AHKJ is the only one to not have Madagascar in the title.
R.I.P. to musicians Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck, Bogert & Appice) and Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls). Both passed away on January 13.
