It wasn’t. Tennessee Tuxedo premiered two years before Get Smart. Don Adams is the main thing the shows have in common.

That said, I love the programming idea. You could also do a lot with the direct animated spinoffs (“Partridge Family 2200 AD”, “Emergency +4”, “Lassie’s Rescue Rangers, etc.).

TV Guy's right. It was just that Tennessee Tuxedo was voiced by Don Adams.

In my honest opinion there are no other animated sitcoms out there including The Simpsons that can rival The Flintstones. This addition to METV is a huge upgrade.

I agree. I liked the Simpsons for the first year or two but quickly tired of it. The Flintstones is timeless.

Same here!! If it wasn't for my Kids watching it, I was done with the Simpsons after about two seasons too!

Now the Flintstones is a whole other story ! I can't get enough of them!!

I was really happy when Spongebob Squarepants came along which I really do think is very funny and cool! And my boys kinda got away from the Simpsons and got into Spongebob more!

IMO Spongebob Squarepants is the best newer cartoon!!
