Originality and futurism is the big strenght of this animated show
This animated TV show has notorious inspiration in "The Flintstones" when it comes to artwork, music, animation and simplicity. Even the designs and the characters look similar to the famous pre-historical cartoons, although "The Jetsons" is instead a futuristic/science-fiction TV show.
I was never really a fan of "The Jetsons" neither "The Flintstones". Don't get me wrong: I never found them bad by any circumstances. In fact, I even used to watch them sometimes when I was a kid. But they were never among my priorities or favorites when it comes to animated sitcoms.
Still, "The Jetsons" left its mark in the history of cartoons for its originality and "out-of-this-world" stories. It was certainly something ahead of its time and maybe it's because of its futuristic contents that it doesn't look as aged as "The Flintstones", although it looks just as conservative.
I remember well the opening song. It was okay, but not as cool as the catchy song from "The Flintstones".
"The Jetsons" is somewhat forgotten nowadays, but that doesn't change the fact that it is good for children or anyone who likes its particular originality.
