Robert McKimson predicts "The Jetsons"
2 July 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Occasionally, I read a review by someone who considers Robert McKimson one of the lousiest cartoon directors. By all accounts, "Design for Leaving" should completely disprove that. When fast-talking salesman Daffy Duck appears at Elmer Fudd's door, the lisping mallard pushes the dimwitted hunter out of the house and installs a series of push-button gadgets...which of course end up working against Elmer! Why must he suffer so?! I figure that the people behind this cartoon saw Americans trying to automate their homes in every possible way, and so they decided to come up with a parody. And a hilarious parody at that. This actually came out several years before "The Jetsons" predicted people having robot servants. But overall, every time that we come up with an innovation, it shortens our attention span just a little.

Anyway, a really funny cartoon.

The WED button. All of New Orleans could have really used that on August 29, 2005.
