Storyline

Fred Flintstone and George Jetson have some things in common: They have back breaking jobs and families to support, but they soon find out a little more about one another one peculiar day when George Jetson's son Elroy builds a time machine, the family thinks it a joke but agrees to try it out anyway. It was built to take them further into the future, but instead (thanks to Astro) they get sent back to Prehistorica Days. Back to the town of Bedrock. On vacation, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Barney and Betty Rubble, meet the Jetsons and think them to be beings from another universe. Fred passes George off as his cousin and all goes well, until the time machine accidentally transports the Flintstones into the future, so while the Flintstones and Rubbles adjust to a space-age, robotic, automatic life, the Jetsons have to adjust to a rocky, stony, pedal car, no-shoe, no picture-phone, no-Mr. Spacely stone-age life. Meanwhile, Henry Orbit and Rosie have built a new time machine and Rosie ... Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Interesting cross-over that mostly works well
23 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones' had an intriguing premise, taking two difficult families and putting them into different universes and meshing them together. Was a little worried as to whether the two would gel but actually it mostly works well, coming from somebody who really likes 'The Jetsons' and loves 'The Flintstones' (still one of my favourites).

Not without its flaws by all means. To me the biggest flaw was Judy's rock star romantic subplot, that went absolutely nowhere and was practically neglected. It just felt unnecessary for it to be there in the first place when so little was done with it and like it was there solely to pad out the running time. Too many of the characters have too little screen time, some even completely wasted, and with little to do.

Animation quality is uneven, faring better with The Jetsons, where some vibrancy and imagination can be seen, than with The Flintstones, where things look cruder and more rushed-looking.

However, both the Jetson and Flintstone families are immensely enjoyable and are well characterised, especially Fred and George. The terrific voice cast, full of highly respected voice actors who give their all and succeed brilliantly, helps hugely. There are some nice small details as well, such as Fred being given his favourite breakfast as a way of persuasion by Wilma for a vacation.

Writing is very amusing, perhaps borrowing a little some gags from both shows, but the humour is very true in spirit to both shows, corny but often very funny and smart (especially with The Flintstones). The story deals with the fish out of water premise in a way that's compelling and fun to watch and gives a real sense of nostalgia, which are enough to compensate for its relative predictability and one useless subplot.

Overall, interesting and mostly works well. As far as the "Superstar 10" made for TV specials/films go, 'The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones' while not one of the best is a long way from one of the worst. 7/10 Bethany Cox
