I'm going to be very honest with you, reader. I feel that the cartoon has evolved from the old classics. Cartoons have become punchier and more visually appealing, yes—however, the good old days of cartoons released some of the best ideas that you could imagine. One of these classics was The Jetsons.
First of all, if you have never watched The Jetsons, then my friend, you have never lived. From the catchy theme song to the hilarious idea of what "the future" would bring, The Jetsons served up a great family show with lots of laughs. Like most cartoons from the "good old days," The Jetsons can sometimes take a while to get to the end of a gag. Also, the animation is definitely dated. But you get a better appreciation of animation and the cartoon industry when you watch shows like The Jetsons and their counterpart, The Flintstones. The show even spawned several cartoon movies and a live-action feature-length film.
Have any fond memories of The Jetsons? Let me know what you think about it. If you have never watched the show before, you can purchase or rent the DVDs or watch it on air if you have Boomerang (contact your cable provider for more information).
