The Pebbles and Bamm Bamm Show was recently released to DVD from Warner Home Video featuring both characters as teenagers getting into all sorts of trouble while attending Bedrock High.The show was a spin-off series that was produced after the final run of the original Flintstones. While the show is about Pebbles & Bamm Bamm and their friends, the parents of both teenagers are still present helping their offspring any way they can.
Now comes a rare piece of H-B history...
Around the same time Pebbles and Bamm Bamm was being produced, someone at the Hanna Barbera studio wondered why wouldn't a similar show work for another animated primetime family? The Jetsons!Yes, your eyes do not deceive you.
That is a conceptual drawing featuring a "teenage" Elroy, a "young adult" Judy and a "daddy(?)" Astro.As the rumor goes, a new show revolving around older versions of George and Jane's children was going to be called "Outerspace Race" or something like that...According to the model drawings, it looks as though Judy was going to be a reporter of some kind with Elroy and Astro in tow. Also little "Astro-Scrappy"?If you're wondering where I learned about such obscure Hanna Barbera history, check out the "Hanna Barberian" blog.
The blog is the place for any Hanna Barbera fanatic which wants to learn more about the classic television animation cartoon studio that has been the birthplace of Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Scooby-Doo, Hong Kong Phooey, and many, many, many more cartoon shows!
