The release of the Doctor Who level pack for LEGO Dimensions unlocked some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey cartoon secrets in the game. What good is having a time machine if you can’t travel back to the stone age or forward to Earth’s flying car future?
I’ve barely had time to play LEGO Dimensions since the Doctor Who level pack came out back on November 3 — if I had, maybe I would have discovered secret areas based on Hanna-Barbera cartoons The Flintstones and The Jetsons. Instead I heard about them last night from a couple of my toy-collecting pals, and my first look comes courtesy of YouTuber ChibiCD via Eurogamer.
Meet George Jetson’s apartment.
And then rewind all the way back to Bedrock.
Both of these classic locations are accessed by using the Doctor’s TARDIS at special locations in The Simpsons‘ adventure level and adventure world. I’m guessing they developers chose The Simpsons‘ level instead of the one dedicated to fellow Hanna-Barbera classic Scooby-Doo because the former shares primetime cartoon status with (and takes inspiration from) The Flintstones and The Jetsons.
With LEGO Dimensions toy releases scheduled through May of next year, who knows what other secrets remain hidden? I guess I am going to have to acquire every single thing that comes out in order to stay on top of this. It’s a sacrifice, but I was planning on it anyway.
