These wonderful Jetsons Easter Eggs were made by Danny Kissel.
Every October, I feature spooktacular pumpkin carvings. Danny is one of the amazing pumpkin artists that I’ve featured in the past. Here are three examples of his cool carvings, Danny created this wonderful Marvin the Martian pumpkin carving, this cute Garfield pumpkin carving and this terrific Charlie Brown pumpkin sculpture. I was thrilled to discover that Danny also creates hand drawn Easter Eggs of classic cartoon characters.
Here are his five Jetsons Easter Eggs. Danny hasn’t created a Rosie the Robot Easter Egg yet, but he plans to make an Easter Egg of her in the future.
For some reason, while looking at this egg, I realized something. Someone at Hanna-Barbera must have been a dog lover. The Flintstones, Jetsons and Jonny Quest each have wonderful dogs. I looked at a Hanna-Barbera wiki and they list somewhere around 100 dog characters. Hanna-Barbera’s very first cartoon was The Ruff and Reddy Show. Reddy was a dog. Hong Kong Phooey, Huckleberry Hound, Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy, Snooper, Chopper, Dum Dum, Dynomutt and Wonder Dog are some of their better know cartoon dogs. Unfortunately, even Dick Dastardly had a dog. Poor Muttley.
While I really like Dino and Astro, without a doubt my favorite Hanna-Barbera dog is Scooby-Doo.
When I was a kid, the Jetsons and the Flintstones were both in syndication. I watched them all the time and became a life long fan of both series. At that point, I’d hadn’t seen any of the Blondie and Dagwood movies, so I had no idea that the Jetsons were inspired by them. Penny Singleton was the original voice of Jane Jetson. Penny played Blondie in 28 movies plus the radio show.
Meet George Jetson.
George is a great character. He was the classic loveable loser who you laughed at, but still ended up rooting for in every episode. Also the Jetsons were created because Hanna-Barbera had so much success with the Flintstones. The team that created the Jetsons made sure that they weren’t just a futuristic version of the Flintstones. George and Fred are different enough that both are fantastic characters.
