A 15 Year Old Animation Buff's POV

As an animation buff, I do research on the various eras of animation of recreational purposes. I bought this DVD not for entertainment, but for research. The show is from the 1970s and 1980s, A.K.A the dark ages of animation. If you thought the original Flintstones series (which is a classic and a WAY better pick than this schlock) had bad animation, wait until you see this. While The Flintstones actually had new drawings in every episode, The Pebbles and Bam-Bam Show reuses the same drawings over and over and over. It's a very ugly show. Not only that, but at times the show is borderline sexist. No, scratch that. It IS sexist. For example, in the episode Mayor May Not, Pebbles becomes mayor for a day and decides to redo the entire town's system. For example, she hands over the fire department's duties to the water department, since you put out fire with water. The boys in the group tell her it's a bad idea, and the girls in the group tell her it's brilliant. Guess what? It turns out to be a bad idea. This suggests that all girls are automatically less intelligent than boys. Not only that, but there's an episode (I forget the name) that explains that girls have NO PLACE in sports and instead should be cheerleaders, or "pom pom girls" as Pebbles calls them. Welcome to 1971, everybody. While I STRONGLY disagree with the sexist messages this show sends, I think it's still a better pick for your six year old than the new PG-13 superhero movie. I can't see anyone besides small children enjoying this. I recommend buying your kids the original Flintstones, a show that animation fans of ALL AGES can enjoy. It also uses the sexist notions that we all have for comedy (the women in the show often outsmart the men), whereas The Pebbles and Bam-Bam show plays it straight.

This title has:

Too much sex
