The Flintstones : How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

even after Warner Bros. bought the Hanna-Barbera empire in 1996?
I'm not explicitly talking just this show, but rather the whole franchise.
I ask because "The Flintstones" Las Vegas movie of 2000 was Universal (WAIT NEVERMIND IT WASN'T WB IN OTHER COUNTRIES).

UNLESS, and this is funny me, because it was only what Turner (****stain) bought that became Warner Bros.. I prefer to think of it as New Line rather than Turner. And the MGM cartoons were not at all in the same package as the 60s shows.

Universal must have had distribution rights or something to any prequels or sequels to the 1994 Flintstones movie. The newer Flintstones stuff is Warner Bros.

Re: How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

I know.
I'm just saying how did Universal maintain hold on franchise of the two shows (I think it was "The Jetsons" too) for so long?

Re: How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

Well Turner only bought MGM, so yeah.

And the shows of the 60s were, in a lot of cases, Screen Gems, and none of them were MGM at all.

I'm sorry, man. Just the other day because I tried to point out stupidity about the T2 bar fight all of a sudden being cosnidered comic relief (when everything about that scene is intended to be menacing), I got insulted by someone with your exact name. I know there's a few with your name. They piss me off, bro.

Re: How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

It's not similar names, it is a an account anyone can use on filmboards, so the person who is insulting you using this account is very likely someone who is friendly to you on their main account.


Trust no one, Robin.

I know…
Although I think the ./ that talked to me above right now is a nice guy. I don't think he'd do that.

Re: How did this show (and possibly "The Jetsons") remain property of Universal

I was the one talking to you above also lol I was the guy that tried to post the gif.

Honestly Rob you should just leave this site and find a new place for movies, the admin will let you be trolled into oblivion here, this troll account was his doing, normal admins try and stop trolls, this admin helps them stay hidden.

Yeah this site is shady I'd admit that.
But I do enjoy getting convos. It's not like I'm here regularly.
Why did IMDB have to abandon these boards?
