what a remarkable cultural document of 60s America this is.

Wait a minute, the Hatrocks' radio isn't powered by a smarmy bird or a sarcastic turtle or something. There are actual transistors in there!

Little do the Flintstones know that they've run afoul of REDNECKS FROM THE FUTURE.

Everyone knows that the Flintstones were the underclass living far below the Jetsons on the surface of a polluted and post-apocalyptic future Earth.

The Flintstones will never be awake until they are free, and the Flintstones will never be free until they are awake.

They've discovered gunpowder too. I have a whole new respect for rednecks now - they're not retarded humans, they're genius homo erectuses.

ONCE AGAIN the incongruities between this ever popular "underclass theory" and the time traveling motif central to the Flintstones/ Jetsons crossover go unremarked.

Now, I'll grant you that at first glance, Bedrock's apparent familiarity with the Beatles would seem to support the "from the future" hypothesis. However, it COULD be that what we're witnessing here is not the end result of countless generations orally transmitting Beatles songs until the original source is rendered barely recognizable but the START of a process that ENDS with the Beatles, reworking prehistoric music into a modern form.

As for the transistor radio, nobody uses those anymore. Hence why cavemen have one.

Homer, using a time machine built by an eight year old. Think about yourself as a parent coming face to face with telling your child that his whole affluent way of life is built on the slavery of a human underclass... or... you tell him he successfully built a time machine.

Then how do you explain the presence of dinosaurs? Were they genetically engineered and unleashed in the Undercity so as to keep the proles in check? If so, wouldn't robots have been a more sensible, cost-efficient choice? Or did George Jetson plant the dinosaurs there beforehand, so as to lend validity to the time machine story, on the off-chance he'd need to use it some day?

Besides, if the underclass really does exist, why hasn't Judy fallen in with a trendy "Free Bedrock" youth movement?

DNA maintains itself while standard machinery breaks down. It's easier to let the universe run the program than having to disguise a Spacely Sprocket airship as a pterodactyl every time a mammoth washing machine breaks down. Isn't it strange that different eras of animals live side by side?

Besides, Spacely Sprockets and Cogswell Cogs were nanotech companies, so the line between organic machines and technology probably ended long before.

Judy probably doesn't consider them human, she's a Jetson, not a fucking Rockefellar, ugh.

Can't any of you knuckleheads tell the difference between a transistor and a vacuum tube? Sheesh.

memedumpster
You mean a complex nanoarray disguised as a vacuum tube to give the illusion of primitive stone aged technology?

This is easily one of the best threads ever on POETV.

I hate to break it to you: The Flintstones have always sucked.
Caminante Nocturno
This is correct.

I was going to comment that the Hatrocks had taught their pet dinosaur how to use a gun, and then Dino and that Kangaroo thing were there playing Guitar and signing along with the babies, and it kind of seemed less impressive.

Let's see: forced pop culture references, a joke that stops being funny after the first few seconds but goes on FOREVER...

It's proto-Family Guy! No wonder Seth MacFarlane wants to reboot this!

Also, I can think of few other shark jumping moments in animation history than the fucking Gruesomes.
Quad9Damage
Flintstones sure as shit aren't the One-ders.
Pompoulus
So he says 'all set' and they say 'all set' and then laugh, and the fact that they laughed is the joke?
Caminante Nocturno
Everyone who legitimately enjoyed the Flintstones is now dead.
