Unlike other cartoons in this list, The Jetsons aired on Prime-time TV on Sunday Nights on ABC, instead of Saturday Mornings, where most cartoons lived back in the day. The Jetsons had the distinction of being ABC’s first program to ever be broadcast in color. The Jetsons were the polar opposites of The Flintstones. The Flintstones were from the pre-historic past, and The Jetsons showed us a glimpse of the future. Just like the Flintstones with the boulder, stone, and rock theme, every name and every place is a pun of something futuristic or spacey. For instance, a Maserati would be called a Moonseratti, and the school’s name is Orbit High School. From waking in the morning, to going to school or work, to getting ready for bed, every person used a plethora of time-saving conveniences, handled by gadgets built into every building or vehicle. And although they had these conveniences, they still had day-to-day struggles that made their lives seem not-that-different from our lives.
