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

Like appearing as a guest villain on Batman, doing a guest voice on the series was considered, by most celebrities during the '60s, to be a badge of honor. See more »
All throughout the series, the cars are run by foot. If this is the case, why do the gas stations exist? See more »
[Having discovered Fred and wanting to cast him in the role of the loud-mouthed husband in the new show, "The Frogmouth"]
That voice, that voice! He's the perfect Frogmouth! Get that frog! I mean, get that man! Get him up here right away! So you're Wilma's husband. I knew it, I knew it! One look at her, and I knew it! Tell me, Fred, did you ever do any acting?
Well, heh-heh, one year I was in the spring play at Public School 158.
And you were Hamlet? Uh, Romeo? Er, King Arthur?
Na-a-aw, no, none...

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, many episodes have incorrect closing credits. Some later episodes drop the "Meet the Flintstones" closing credits in favor of footage of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm singing "Let the Sunshine In." See more »
I grew up on shows like Scooby Doo and Tom Jerry and this is no exception. I love the Flintstones:- it is funny and incredibly smart, and at 17 I can still watch it and there is very seldom a dull moment. What makes it great? Well, the detailed and colourful animation contributes hugely. Also the theme tune, has to be one of the most catchy theme tunes on any animated TV show. Then there's the humour, the whole show is constantly funny and is guaranteed to have you chuckling away. Finally we have the characters. Fred is one zany cartoon, and Alan Reed was the perfect choice for him. Another hilarious character, perhaps even more so than Fred is Barney, who is quite goofy yet completely lovable. Who'd better to voice him than the immortal Mel Blanc? Then we have Wilma, who is a great sexy female character and wonderfully voiced by Jean Vader Pyl. Plus the voluptuous Betty, voiced to perfection by Bea Benaderet. The writing constantly is incredibly witty, sharp and smart, the story lines are outstanding and the supporting characters namely the hilarious Mr Slate and cute as a button Pearl are just as great. All in all, I loved this when I was a kid, and as a near-adult I still love it. Adults will enjoy it as well as kids. 10/10 Bethany Cox
