Cosmo Spacely (The Jetsons)
The Jetsons was one of my favorite cartoons to watch when I was growing up. I thought it was hilarious (probably funnier than The Flintstones), and I just loved the idea of this future that was decades upon decades away from happening. It was like a dream world. Something that is more nightmarish rather dream-like in the show, however, at least for George Jetson, is his boss, Cosmo Spacely, who’s essentially a business tyrant with a “little man” complex and a very Hitler-esque mustache. To this day, I still don’t know what the heck the creators of The Jetsons were thinking back when they made the show in the early sixties. Maybe they were attempting pay homage to Charlie Chaplin?
