Keeping up with the Flintstones

Cribs for Cartoons

The success of shows like 'cribs' has shown that there are a lot of people who want to compare their houses with those of celebrities. But why restrict this practice purely to real people?

Through televised interviews with architects, interior designers and the like; the residences and furnishings of all manner of fictional characters are pored over.

The ultimate question would always be ‘what is this property worth?’ The hook for viewers would be finding out how the value of their homes would compare to the apartments from Friends, Frasier or Will & Grace; whether (adjusting for inflation of course) they would be better off than George Jetson in the year 2062; or how much it would have cost them to buy a house on Mockingbird Lane.

       Hopefully it might expalin how fictional waitresses, childminders, and struggling artists seem to be able to afford warehouse-size apartments on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

       how much is a treehouse on the Muppet Show or Sesame Street?

       Big Winners: Richie Rich and Scrooge McDuck   

       Big Losers: Barney Gumble (from the Simpsons) and the Jeffersons (a penthouse on the east side isn't worth nearly as much now as it was then)   

       I would totally watch that show.

       I want a cave grotto like on Fraggle Rock.

       I never saw the Muppet Show and Sesame Street treehouse drug connection. I guess "It's not Easy Being Green" was a sort of precusor to "it's Hard Out Here on a Pimp."

       We would like to keep up with the Q Continuum.
