Guys, it's more important than ever that we protect the future. You hear that, Mitt Romney? You hear that, Barack Hussein Obama? Quit talking about healthcare and the deficit. The most important priority right now is to see that we don't end up like the Jetsons.
When Hanna-Barbera first created "The Jetsons," it was intended to be a contrast to "The Flintstones" as a commentary on modern society by juxtaposing contemporary concerns through the lens of our past and future. (Either that, or because spaceship go vroom-vroom.) But as Cracked.com's Soren Bowie and Cody Johnston point out, the reality was much more terrifying. For instance, how come we never see the ground? Why does George never seem to work very hard? And where are the animals?!
And that's before we even get to the mind-blowing fact that if the Flintstones met the Jetsons, that means they take place in the same timeline. As always, thanks for making our stupid minds all confused, Cracked.
