I was NOT promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia. What About The Flying Cars?!

FUCK NO! “unless you’re over 60, you weren’t promised flying cars. You were promised an oppressive cyberpunk dystopia.”

I’m 31 and I grew up with

  • The Jetsons, those have flying cars and robots
  • The Thunderbirds
  • Dragon ball which has dragon balls and flying capsule cars and all sorts of scary aliens
  • Back to the future which has flying cars endless recycled energy and rejuvenation, hoverboards, …………. (after they fixed the grimdark part)
  • Star Trek which barely even has wars as we know them!
  • Astro Boy! Heatcliff! Mysterious cities of Gold, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Voltron, Thundercats, Inspector Gadget and Muppet Babies!
  • and hot women in spandex which was about every cartoon ever.. Except Sailor Moon but that’s just a whole different ballpark.

 

I was fucking promised flying cars!

I might agree that the 35 to 55 year olds were looking at very grimdark stuff at the time, but that is NOT what I was watching!
