Traveling back in time November of 1987, I remember watching this for the first time in awe of my two favorite television shows meeting. Watching it again today over 20 years later still holds something special. The transfer of this film is spectacular. The color is really vibrant and the sound is really clear.  It is great to finally see this film get a proper DVD release, it has had a few VHS releases in the past, but this is the first time it is officially on DVD.  If you are a fan of Hanna-Barbera, this is a must buy.

In the film, the Jetsons accidentally travel back in time to the prehistoric times to meet the Flintstones.  Of course you can only imagine the mayhem the two get involved with, specially with culture clashes.  I always thought the idea worked well as a 92 minute feature.  I would have loved to seen more cross-over’s of different characters as well. Thanks Warner Archive Collection for releasing these classic.

The DVD is available exclusively through Warner Bros.’ Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection, being sold exclusively through the online WBShop.

Premise:
It’s the wackiest animated adventure of all space-time when the world’s favorite Modern Stone Age Family comes face to face with the First Family of the Future in a matchup that only Hanna-Barbera Studios can delightfully make possible! Thanks to Elroy’s malfunctioning tie machine, the Flintstones and Rubbles are zapped into the robot-run future while the Jetsons suddenly find themselves in the dinosaur-filed past. Can our fearless families adapt? And more importantly, will they ever get back home? Find out – in a time-hopping animated feature-length romp packed with all the gags, gadgets and nonstop fun unleashed when The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones.
