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 show was broadcast in black-and-white for the first 61 episodes during seasons 1 & 2 of 1960-61 & 1961-62. There are 29 in 1960-61. 32 more in second season, of 1961-62 [most productive season]. (The final 106: seasons 3, 4, 5 & 6 were filmed in color and the introductory theme song "Meet the Flintstones") There are 28, in season three. There are 26 in season four. There 26 in season five. There are 26 in season six. Although all materials (episodes, Winston cigarette commercials, plus Opening & Closing Credits) were always produced in color (thus the color versions of the "Rise and Shine" Opening & Closing credits that now air).

The bosses of Fred and Barney, both have first name, of George. But their last name keeps changing from Slate to Granite, back & forth, (most like a light switch, turned on or off) throughout season one. See more »
I love my dear sweet mother in-law. My mother in-law is a doll.
Are you feeling alright, mister?
Huh? Yeah. Yeah, I'm okay.
Good. Good. You just stay in here and rest. That hot sun out there is a killer.
Poor guy, he must have been standing in it for hours.

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 spent my whole life watching this show and now that the first season is about to be released on DVD, theres no better time to talk about why i like 'The Flintstones' so much. I was always made fun of during my school days for being such a fan and even though i'm 28 now, my passion for 'The Flintstones' is still as strong as ever. So what is so special about this show? From episode 1 to episode 166, we are treated with laughs and clever animal gimmicks as well as good storylines. The voices are great especially Alan Reed (Fred) who has such a loud and obnoxious voice which fits Fred Flintstone's character so well. The only problem is the amount of mistakes that were made throughout the 6 seasons. They will stand out if you have watched the different episodes enough times. For example one episode will tell us that Fred and Wilma had their honeymoon in Boulder Beach, another will tell you it was Bedrock Races and another at the Rock Mountain Inn. Also do The Flintstones live on Cobblestone Lane, Stonecanyon Way or Gravelpit Terrace? There are many other mistakes like this but they don't take away the fact that 'The Flintstones' is top notch entertainment for the whole family, not just children. William Hanna and Joseph Barbera have given us some fantastic cartoons that have stood the test of time and 'The Flintstones' is my favourite out of all of them.
