I know these two cartoons qualify as retro...since both debuted in the early 60's. They were always playing on some channel or another on cable during 80's saturday mornings, still are on Cartoon Network. So who's your favorite??? Mine is Flintstones hands down, the Jetsons however I turn off when I hear the theme music.
As I haven't seen either for a while, it's kinda hard to say. However, I do believe I'll go with the Flintstones too. Driving a foot powered car has got to be harder than flying joy stick controled space car thing.
Hmm, as a kid I enjoyed both shows, but since I've grown older, I like the Flinstones more, so I guess my vote goes to the Flinstones.
But I will say this, 80s version of Jetsons > 60s version of Jetsons. The 60s version I grew to dislike as I got older since it struck me as a bit sexist, especially with George's "A woman's place is in the kitchen" attitude he seemed to have, and let's not forget that women can't drive.
At least the 80s version was more realistic in that sense.
George just seemed really lazy, but Astro and Elroy were cool. But the Flinstones had Dino, Barney, Bam Bam, and Wilma was a lot more interesting than Jane (Wilma's mother-in-law was pretty funny too).
George always seemed lazy to me too, and a tad whiny. Something thats always bothered me...why does Jane Jetson need a maid??? Shes never done anything except push buttons and shop.
I can't recall the ep where they got her, but never mind that, someone explain this to me (that's kinda off topic lol):
Why does Carol Brady need a maid if she's a housewife?
How can the Bradys afford a live-in maid, decent meat from the deli, six-kids with an allowance, a house [mortgage payments more than likely], utility bills, have three of the kids with braces, with only one-inocome of an architect who was making at the most, $200 a week? :p
Oh this is a good one, do you go with sheer comedy with the pre-historic flintstones or sheer comedy with the futuristic jetsons, grrrrr i hate people who ratlle my brain in this was, so im gonna just make up my mind and go with the simpsons.............. oh wait that was never in the question, darn my memory....... im gonna go with the flintstones so sorry jetsons fans
Every time I visit RetroJunkit seems to change. Just glad the people dont.
Come on Vertex and Mod Gang, sort out my contributions
It has to be The Flintstones for me. My childhood best friend Brad and I went through a huge Flintstones phase. We used to play 'The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy' on NES for hours on end, stopping only to wolf down bowls of Fruity Pebbles.
I do love the Jetsons as well, though. I remember totally FREAKING when I saw an ad for The Jetsons Movie in the 'Coming Attractions' at the start of one of my Hanna Barbera videos. A whole planet full of Orbity's people? Rock on!
Flintstones. They were based on The Honeymooners and if you ever watched that you know that Jackie Gleason was one FUNNY guy. I like how they always changed celebrities names into something to do with prehistoric times.
I actually thought the Jetsons came out in the late 80's up until recently. I never had cable when I was younger so I think it was in th elate 80s was when I first started watching the Jetson. That was some dame good animation and color for something made in the 60s.
