Millionaire Astro is the sixteenth episode of Season One of The Jetsons.


The "fabulously wealthy" J.P. Gottrockets tries to reclaim Astro, whom he had named Tralfaz and ran away from him, from the Jetsons. After an abortive attempt by Gottrockets' lawyer, Withers, to seize Astro, disguised as "Uncle Charlie," the billionaire takes the Jetsons to court. The computer Jury-Vac awards Astro to Gottrockets. Astro doesn't enjoy the luxurious life at the Gottrockets mansion except when the Jetsons visit. The billionaire finally realizes Astro is happy with the Jetsons and gives ownership of the dog to them.
