  • The Sheer Genius of Some Retro Cartoons

     

    As you sit watching cartoons like The Simpsons or Family Guy, I bet you can’t help but think of how genius their creators and writers must be to come up with some of the stuff that makes me keel over in hysterics, but if you stop to think for a minute, you may remember that there were some other cartoons that you grew up with that are strangely familiar and definitely paved the way for the cartoons we watch today.

     

    It’s hard to believe that the cartoons we grew up with are considered ‘retro’, but it’s true; all of those gems that we watched in the 70’s are indeed considered retro…soon to be vintage! What many forget is that while those cartoons may have been created over 3 decades ago, some of them were way ahead of their time if you look at what’s so popular now. Do you remember Wait Till Your Father Gets Home with the dad whose voice was played by Tom Bossley? How about Bill Cosby’s Fat Albert? And everyone remembers watching The Flintstones – especially seeing as how many of us still watch it today. These cartoons all touched on matters from our daily lives including some very serious topics but always with a humorous and sometimes dark or snarky edge. Their sublet jabs at everything from celebrity to politics always funny in that way that makes you stop and think for a sec.

     

    Thinking back and remembering these cartoons that you may not have thought about in years is not just a nice trip down memory lane but also makes it clear that they did indeed set the course of things to come in the cartoon world and helped give adults a cartoon fix that was otherwise lacking. Thanks to them, we get to enjoy cartoons filled with ‘adult humor’ during prime time hours so we can unwind with a good belly laugh after a hard days work and let out the occasional ‘ooooooh’ as the animated characters say the things that we all wish we could.

     

    Feeling for Fred Flintstone as he got grief from the man – a.k.a. Mr. Slate or watching Alice—the daughter on Wait Till Your Father Gets Home—struggle with her weight and appearance and come to the realization that a summer at fat camp is what it took to get her dates; these were all just entertainment to us then, but kittle did we know that we were pretty much watching history in the making! The issues they dealt with and the wit, humor and even sarcasm that accompanied was all a platform for the Matt Groenings and Seth MacFarlanes of today. So the next time you cringe at how long ago it was that you were sitting in your polyester outfits and North Star shoes watching your parents wood-paneled Hitachi, remember that you were a little part of cartoon history. Yeah, it may be “retro” now, but it’s still damn cool, ain’t it?!
