    Does anyone know why they put laugh tracks in Flintstones and other toons from that era? Surely people didn't think there was a live audience? Were they trying to make it feel like a sitcom?

    Probably. Considering that when The Flintstones first ran, it was in prime time, that makes even more sense.

    Good thing The Simpsons never went that route.
