A study in contrast of about a million years, but with the same attention to their world, “A Mother’s Work” shows, if anything the difference between Wilma Flintstone and Jane Jetson keeps their home clean. Which works better, well, that’s up for debate.
Hanna-Barbera artist Iwao Takamoto created the original drawing for “A Mother’s Work,” which was silkscreened onto acetate. Each cel was then hand-painted, while Dennis Durrell rendered the background, which was reproduced using the Giclee printing process. Each piece has been signed by Penny Singleton (the voice of Jane Jetson) and Jean Vander Pyl (the voice of Wilma Flintstone).
“The Jetsons,” Hanna-Barbera second prime time cartoon, aired in 1962 becoming another hit for the Hanna-Barbera studio. The Jetsons, based in the 21st Century world filled with space ships, robots, elaborate electronic gadgets and labor saving devices.
The characters in this futuristic cartoon series are George Jetson, his wife Jane, Judy is their teenage daughter, Elroy their young son and Astro the family dog. Rounding out the cast is Rosie their robot maid, Henry the Skypad apartment supernatant where the Jetsons live, Cosmo Spacely George’s boss and H.G. Cogswell who owns the rival company to Spacely.
