A Look Into How Kids From 1976 Imagined The Future

According to the children of the ’70s, the future would pretty much emulate an episode of The Jetson’s, but more robot dictators whose campaigns involve blowing up Earth.

Drawn by Eduardo del Villas, John F. Kennedy High School. Text reads: “I’m going to get you now you dumb bird!”

Drawn by Lisa Gilvar, 4th grade, Happy Hollow Middle School

Drawn by Massachusetts fourth grader. Text reads: “1776-These people were colonists. They traded with the Indians. They lived in wooden houses. In 2076 because of the food shortages many people have small farms and gardens.”

Drawn by high schooler Robert Berman.

Drawn by student Tina Kambitsis. She obviously didn’t not have high hopes for the future, or maybe she saw Robert’s drawing and had an intuition that robots will ultimately lead to world destruction.
