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>

A great host of voice actors!!
7 June 2005 | by Jjmak2004See all my reviews

I own this video and i've seen it on TV many times. The movie pretty much combines the stone age Flintstones with the space age Jetsons. The voice work in this movie contains some the last major performances for the top two voice actors in my opinion. Daws Butler, who gave voice to Elroy Jetson, Henry Orbit, and Cogswell Cog, passed away in 1988...a year after this movie was completed. Mel Blanc, who gave voice to Barney Rubble, Dino, and Mr Spacely, passed away in 1989. The rest of the cast lived on through much of the 1990s with Henry Corden {voice of Fred Flintstone} passing away just recently. I won't give away the crux of the movie but i will say i enjoy watching the movie very much. No matter how many times i've seen it, those VOICES and the people who gave life to these characters make the movie a joy each and every viewing...Don Messick's vocals are amazing in this movie. He is the voice behind Astro, Mac, and the quivering computer named RUDI plus he gave voice to other nameless roles. The one and only John Stephenson was on hand as Mr Slate. Penny Singleton was Jane Jetson; George O'Hanlon was George Jetson; and Janet Waldo was Judy Jetson. Jean Vanderpyl was also on hand as Wilma Flintstone, Rosie the Robot, and Judy's talking diary. I give this 9 out of 10 stars because of the sub-plot of Judy falling in love with the stone-age rock singer. I didn't enjoy that aspect of the movie very much. All in all, this is a great cartoon...family friendly, too, and a wonderful spotlight on some legendary voice actors.
