Boring Cartoon Sitcom To Be Remade By Boring Cartoon Sitcom Guy

flintstones movieThe inexplicably beloved Hanna-Barbera franchise The Flintstones, which holds the dubious distinction of being the first cartoon sitcom, is being reinvented for today's audiences by Seth MacFarlane, the auteur behind 90% of today's cartoon sitcoms, including Family Guy and Family Guy Spinoff. Remaking a boring Honeymooners rip-off from half a century ago that nobody actually likes, except maybe nostalgia-blinded baby boomers? Check. Another goddamned Seth MacFarlane show greenlit by Fox, despite their ridiculous insistence that their strategy is not "all Seth, all the time?" Check. This is the state of television in 2011.
