Bugs Bunny, one of animation’s most recognizable characters, first hopped onto the screen in 1940 and has been a pop-culture icon ever since. More than eight generations have enjoyed the timeless antics of the carrot-munching wise guy. Clever pranks and one-liners are included, along with interviews with animators, historians, and superstars as well as works by Bob Clampett, Chuck Jones, Robert McKimson, Friz Freleng, Tex Avery.

The Flintstones: The Complete Series follows the misadventures of the Flintstones and Rubbles, who consistently find themselves caught between a rock and a hard place. Living in the suburbs in the town of Bedrock, Fred Flintstone is a devoted husband who is employed at the Slate Rock and Gravel Company. He is married to Wilma, a smart, strong-willed red-headed beauty. Their next-door neighbors and friends are Barney and Betty Rubble. The four of them are always involved in variety of hilarious shenanigans of every-day living. Although they live in pre-historic times, they have modern conveniences, but they are made from stone age materials and mainly powered by animals.  Since the stone age, The Flintstones has delivered entertainment that delights each new generation.

Premiering on ABC in 1960, The Flintstones was the first animated series to air in primetime on US television and was the first adult-targeted cartoon on TV. It was also the first animated series to be nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
