This popular animated television cartoon featured two Stone Age families, the Flintstones and their neighbors, the Rubbles. Much of the humor was based on its comic portrayals of modern conveniences, reinterpreted using Stone Age 'technology.' Most notably were their cars, complete with absence of floorboards to allow them to be 'foot-powered.' Written by

The original unaired pilot The Flintstones: The Flagstones (1960) was produced in 1959. It is only 1 minute & 42 seconds, equaling 102 seconds. The series was intended to be called "The Flagstones" but the title was changed when the creators of the comic strip "Hi and Lois" (a spin-off of "Beetle Bailey"), about a suburban American family named the Flagstons, threatened legal action, of a possible law suit, so William Hanna & Joseph Barbera changed the Stone-Age family's last-name, from Flagstone to Flintstone, before The Flintstones: The Flintstone Flyer (1960) was produced.

All throughout the series, the cars are run by foot. If this is the case, why do the gas stations exist? See more »
First season episodes incorporated an ad for Winston Cigarettes into the opening credits (this version of the opening was removed for syndication). Due to the decision to use a standard opening and closing for syndicated versions of the episodes, numerous episodes have incorrect closing credits. Sixth & last season episode debuted with, The Flintstones: No Biz Like Show Biz (1965) dropped the "Meet the Flintstones" closing credit song, in favor of footage of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm singing "Let the Sunshine In." (a reminder of Fred Flintstone's dream, earlier in the musical program). See more »
I don't care how much flack I'm going to get for this, but I'm 44 years old, and I STILL think this is the best TV show of all time! All through my school years it was broadcast every day on a local TV station at noon, and at noon every kid in town would run home, gobble down their lunches, and watch. I must have seen every episode at least 100 times, if not more. And long after I got out of school I continued the ritual. If anything, I appreciate it more now that I'm older. There was so much that resonated. The chemistry between Fred and Barney couldn't be beat. Best friends through thick and thin. Even tho they'd drive each other crazy at times, when the chips were down they'd walk thru fire for each other. I could give a million reasons why I love this show. This show is one of my happiest childhood memories, and I know I'll NEVER tire of it. Thank you Hanna and Barbera.
