The first episode of Captain Pugwash aired on 22 October 1957. The children's animation was written, illustrated and produced by John Ryan. The bumbling Captain was brought to life by Peter Hawkins, who provided all the voices. The simple but beautifully crafted cartoon, with cut-out figures moved by cardboard levers, contributed to the overall charm of the programme, which is still fondly remembered years after it was last shown.
The Flintstones is the best family-friendly cartoon. It is about a family of cavemen living in a society very similar to 20th century America. It was way better than the Jetsons. It was inspired by the Honeymooners and served as inspiration for cartoons like the Simpsons and Family Guy.
