The Flintstones is the best family-friendly cartoon. It is about a family of cavemen living in a society very similar to 20th century America. It was way better than the Jetsons. It was inspired by the Honeymooners and served as inspiration for cartoons like the Simpsons and Family Guy.
Life is Just a Bag of Tricks - Felix the Cat ... Felix the Cat debuted in 1919 making him one of the oldest cartoon characters, though still the dispute remains whether Felix was created by Pat Sullivan or Otto Messmer; the wonderful cartoon character with his big smile and the surreal situations he ends up in make him one of the most recognizable cartoon characters.
