What is the name of the art style with wacky space alien characters? I've seen the style in many places over time but a good example which I can provide is the illustrations in the Area 51 StackExchange site. Here are some examples:

UFO and moon
Planet landscape with space vehicles
Aliens saying bye to a departing rocket ship

    I assume you mean more specific than "cartoon"? – KMSTR Apr 25 '14 at 9:37
  • I don't know what style it is exactly but it reminds me of Hanna Barbera cartoons cartoons, such as the Flinstones and the Jetsons. May be worth checking that out? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanna-Barbera – SaturnsEye Apr 25 '14 at 9:58
  • It reminded me of the Dexter's Lab and Johnny Bravo style. – Vincent Apr 25 '14 at 10:28

'Retro 60s animation' and 'Retro 50s animation' go a long way.
