The Top Five Cartoons Of The 60’s
The 60’s was an exciting period in human history. It was full of tremendous potential and new developments. Cartoons of the 60’s were also exciting and innovative and many were so good that they are still being aired.
Scooby Doo, Where Are You? (1969-76)
Scooby Doo was a dog who helped out a group of friends in solving mysteries which often appeared to be paranormal in nature.
Its fun nature and its generic story-lines meant that viewers could easily get the concept and attempt to solve the mysteries too.
The Jetsons (1962-63)
The Jetsons was about a family living in the year 2062. Although the technologies were vastly different, home life seemed just the same as it had been since the start of the 20th century.
The Flintstones (1960-66)
The Flintstones was a series that chartered the antics of the Flinstone and Rubble households in a chronologically incorrect time period that saw Dinosaurs and humans on Earth at the same time.
Like The Jetsons, The Flintstones was a traditional working family set in another time period, in this case the past. The mischievous Fred and his comical antics, coupled with his frequent lies, often got him into trouble especially with his wife, Wilma.
Barney, his best friend, was often along for the ride as Fred bulldozed him through hare-brained scheme after hare-brained scheme. This was the series successful attraction.
Top Cat (1961-62)
Top Cat was a cartoon series about alley cats who loved to wisecrack one another and try to get rich without doing too much hard work. Constantly watched by Officer Dribble, things seldom worked out the way they expected.
The Fantastic Four (1967-70)
The Fantastic Four featured a slightly dysfunctional, high achieving family who after being subjected to cosmic rays on a Space mission develop amazing powers.
The strength of the fantastic four was in the family unit. Sometimes they didn’t get on with one another but like most families they persevered and strengthened their relationship further.
