Name my comic strip!

I am a cartoonist developing a comic strip and I need a title!

Here is the premise:

A family strip taking place in the future, envisioned in the 50's/60's. Very Syd Mead-ish, Mid-centuryish retro. It's the commercial future, envisioned by FORD, Chevy, GE, et al.

Yes, some could say it's variation of the Jetson's but the only thing it has in common with the Jetson's is the time frame.

I was going to call it "Honey, Where's my Jet Pack", until I saw a book by the same name.

Now I am stuck because that was the name I was going with. It was pefect.

Because I am in development, I can't post any pics (though I wish I could).

What I can say is the character are a father, mom and son and daughter (who are twins and about 8 years old). Of course the dynamics could change as I develop it further.

Help!!!!

I also like Fast Forward. I like the strip idea, too. I'm picturing all those B&W films featuring the "House of the Future" with convection ovens hidden behind cupboards.


Some off the top of my head:

-Honey, What's This Button Do? (Or "Not That Button!" "The Big Yellow Switch" or something).
-The Idiot Light
-Automatronification
-Jetpack for Four
-Does this Spandex Come in Plaid? (Or just "Plaid Spandex" "Plaid Flightsuit"? )
-Gravity Slippers

I'll stop.

Thanks for the input so far!

I really need something that sums up the feel of the strip, so when people hear the title, they immediately get a feel of what it's about without even seeing it.

"Honey, Where's my Jetpack" did just that.

I also like 'Fast forward" but you'll have to see if the title is available right?

I'll come back to this thread if I think of something fantastic for you.

Creative suggestions! Thanks!

After doing some research, I legally could use my original title as book titles aren't copyrighted, nor are movie titles.

The book is called "Where's my Jetpack".

I added the "Honey" before I even knew about the book.

What do you guys think about "Space Capades" or "Space-Age"??

of those two; I prefer 'Space-Capades' - if that's any help

Cheers,
