The first animated network prime time comedy – complete with laugh track!
The first 30-minute animated production. Not a short (or show made up of shorts). Not a feature. But something NEW to animation!
Pop culture references galore! Oddly, this series about prehistoric times, was a nice chronicle of the sixties!
If certain things I’ve read over the years are correct, the first television couple to sleep in the same bed!
The first animated pregnancy and birth!
And the first animated TV series to run six seasons – and 166 episodes.
Oddly, my favorite seasons of those six were the FIRST and FIFTH!
The first was pure raw, rough-edged fun.
The fifth nicely moved fantasy and adventure into the mix.
And, needless to say, I loved the comic books from Dell and Gold Key!
Don’t fret, Fred… just look toward the next fifty years!
