Well, Flintstones and Jetsons need no Introduction. They are equally famous as Tom & Jerry are. The man from the past & the man from the future have made people of all ages laugh for several decades . Both of them are another hit creations from the Brains of Joseph Hanna & William Barbera.
From Flintstones to Jetsons is a journey we all have witnessed. Some things people will never forget about the two fellows are ; “YABA DABA DOO” the famous lines from Freddie Flintstone and the way Mr. George Jetson gets reprimanded for no fault of his by his very own boss Mr. Cosmo Spacely on the T.V screen .
While our smiles stretch like a 70 MM screen while watching these shows, we oversee a very important message, which says : “Materialistic things will change but the problems of life & the way to tackle them will remain the same” .
To start with, the Stone age man uses flying dinosaurs as their aircrafts. And on the other hand the man from the future is having a flying car powered by rocket propellants. Conclusion : We still don’t have a machine which can just transfer
a human being to the desired place on a blink of an eye, implying we still have to rent or drive to the desired location.
Another one !!
In stone age, your boss calls up and scolds you but at least you don’t have to see his horrible face yelling at you, but in the future according to the Hanna-Barbera, with the ability to have a video conferencing, you cannot hide yourself and you have to face the music. Poor Jetsons , on the receiving end due to technology overdose. Conclusion : You still have a boss who represents a Devil in your life no matter what century you belong to.
But at least humans won’t be out of work due to the presence of Artificial Intelligence as many have feared. A reason to cheer about.
Hanna & Barbera, not only made us laugh but also presented us a scenario of how the past was & what future would look like. But let’s not forget the contribution of the families and friends of the Flintstones & the Jetsons. They all have a special place in our heart.
I always use to wonder , what will happen when the past will meet the future. Will Freddie and George understand each other? What will they talk about? Well I’ll leave this for your brains to dribble around with .
But at least we all know one thing , that they will continue to put a smile on our faces.
The two Legendary Men who Never met but live the same life in different generations.
THE FLINTSTONES AND THE JETSONS !!
