So I for some reason found myself pondering this lately. What do you think? Because it’s bothering me.

Was the Simpsons theme inspired by the Jetsons?

So it’s not like they are identical or anything, but they have similar cadences, trills, and the general sense of a roller coaster ride. In my opinion.

It’s also bothering me they have never made a Jetsons Movie. Get at it Sam Raimi!
