The genius behind hit cartoon shows Family Guy and American Dad has signed on to give The Flintstones a revamp.
Seth MacFarlane has often spoken about his love for the prehistoric family, and admits Fred Flintstone was one of the first characters he drew as a kid.
In a statement, MacFarlane jokes, "I think America is finally ready for an animated sitcom about a fat, stupid guy with a wife who’s too good for him."
The new Flintstones is set to air on TV in 2013, according to CinemaBlend.com.
