Elroy brings home a talking dog named Astro, and shows it to Judy and his mom, which they quickly accept. Jane calls George at work on the video phone to tell him about Astro the dog, which he gets upset about. So George decides to buy a robot dog named Lectronimo and brings it home. Then the Jetson family have a dog contest on which dog will stay. Their contest thickens when a robber named the Cat Burglar sneaks into their Skypad apartment and both dogs are truly put to the test.
