But some things bugged me. Both shows were satires of our society, but in different ways. The Flintstones worked because, ha-ha, we knew they REALLY didn't have all those "modern" conveniences and heavy equipment made from animal labor.
They really didn't wear tattered versions of our American clothes. And they didn't have TVs made from rock or newspapers made from slate. But it was funny to see them use their available resources to look like us.
That was the fun of it. It took our s "modern" conveniences into the future and made them even more so. Jet-propelled grocery carts, automatic tooth-brushers, honeymoons on the real moon. Machines and robots did everything. And it was funny to watch people with more resources look like us. But I find it hard to mix them.

The Flintstones asks us to accept that we were once doing well enough with rocks and animals.
