Way Out

The Jetsons was clearly Hanna-Barbera's most stylish major production. Sure, that's like being the tallest midget...

The show also had a couple great musical sequences.

Another take:

My favorite Saturday Morning song, however, comes from The Flintstones:

Yeah, the animation on this stuff is terrible and the design is nothing to write your mom about but it has an appeal.  Why is that?  Is it simply The Honeymooners effect?  

Is it because we recognize ourselves in these characters in the same way our ancestors saw their own daily struggles paralleled in the stories of heroes and gods?
