Dates are in order of release:

Behind the scenes

  • This aired three days after the series finale, "Spacely for a Day."
  • Mr. Slate is named "Nate" in this film, which was carried over from the Flintstones prequel series The Flintstone Kids.
  • Dan Rathmoon is a parody of Dan Rather.
  • The male talk show host who Fred talks to, is a parody of Johnny Carson.
  • Jet Rivers is a parody of Joan Rivers.

Errors

  • Despite the crossover, the world of the Flintstones had previously been fictionalized in "Elroy's Mob" and "A Jetson Christmas Carol."
  • Astro is heard saying goodbye to Dino at the end of the film, but the animators forgot to include the former.

Everlasting influence

  • In The Simpsons episode "A Star is Burns," Bart hears the TV announcer mention (the incorrectly titled) The Flintstones Meet the Jetsons, to which Bart responds, "Uh-oh. I smell another cheap cartoon crossover." Then Bart is introduced to Jay Sherman, the title character of The Critic.
