“The Flinstones,” “The Jetsons,” and More Nostalgia On Cartoons

Who else is intensely nostalgic about cartoons? Today, I want to remember some of the best cartoons I can think of.  I was born in the year 1993, which probably means that I may not have watched all cartoons. The fact still stands that I absolutely adore old cartoons, not only one from the decade of my birth. I have no idea what it is, but I can say that they give me a comforted feeling, and are reassuring and uplifting when I am down.


I am most fond of the older cartoons like “The Flintstones” and “The Jetsons,” which are two really classic and popular cartoons. Lets not forget more modern-day cartoons like “Ed, Edd, n Eddy,” “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” “The Powerpuff Girls,” and “Johnny Bravo.” Anyway, I love how you can see that in both of the cartoons, “The Flintstones” and “The Jetsons,” you can see one, “The Flintstones” is set prehistoric times and “The Jetsons” portrays how the future would be idealized. Both have hilarious ways of living according to the time period they portray. For example, in “The Flintstones” there are pets such as Sabre-tooth Tigers and dinosaurs, prehistoric birds as alarm clocks, and rocks in which words are carved which substitutes the paper and pencil we would typically use in this time.

Along with these two, which by the way were created by Hanna-Babera, which is comprised of late William Hanna, who passed away in 2001, aging 90, and Joseph Barbera, who passed away in 2006, aging 95. Hanna-Barbera was founded in 1957 and made many cartoons that made their marks as entertaining, humorous, and memorable.

Other old cartoons I have watched on television, and do watch on DVD sometimes when I am not shopping, studying, spending time with friends, etc. re Casper, Popeye the Sailor Man, Hoppity Hooper, Yogi Bear, The Huckleberry Hound Show, Superfriends, Pink Panter  and the lesser known cartoon, Fraidy Cat. Cartoon Network and Boomerang are where I have watched most of these.

Like I always say about never outgrowing Disney, I will say the same about other things, but few other things. I will say it sparingly, because I am quite serious and fond of my love for Disney. You never outgrow these simply remarkable, commendable cartoons so keep them and pass them on.
