Astro - Grey Great Dane dog on the
animated cartoon THE JETSONS/ABC/1962-63. Astro (voice of Don
Messick) lived with the Jetson family in the twenty-first century
Sky Pad Apartments.
When it was time for Astro to take a walk, his master George
Jetson placed him on a treadmill just outside their home.
Originally, Astro was found wandering the streets by George
Jetson's son, Elroy (episode "The Coming of Astro"). The family fell
in love with Astro, but George decided it would be better to have an
electronic guard dog named Lectronimo. It, at least, didn't eat.
But when a cat burglar entered their home, Astro not the
electronic mutt saved the day. The electronic dog was programmed to
attack anything in a mask. So the burglar put his mask on George
Jetson and it was "run for your life time" for old George.
