Jane Jetson is a fictional character from the animated series The Jetsons. Jane is the matriarch of the Jetson family, the wife of George, and mother of Judy and Elroy. Jane resides with her family in the Skypad Apartments in Orbit City, in a future with the trappings of science fiction depictions of American life in the future, such as robot servants, flying saucer-like cars and moving sidewalks. All of the apartment buildings are set on giant poles, resembling Seattle's Space Needle; the ground is virtually never seen.
Jane is a homemaker and devoted mother and wife. She does everything she can to make life as pleasant as possible for her entire family. Although she is usually very sweet and pleasant natured, Jane is also very protective of her family and will not hesitate to defend them when they are threatened. For instance, Jane is completely unafraid of standing up to Mr. Spacely, George's boss, when he antagonizes her husband or her family. Jane is also very fashionable, staying up-to-date to on the latest fashions and technology. One of Jane's favorite activities is shopping with her favorite store being Mooning Dales (a parody of Bloomingdales). Although Jane is a devoted homemaker and has a robot maid and automated appliances, even the simple act of pushing buttons for housework exhausts her and she has to take a vacation.
