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 famous theme song, "Meet the Flintstones", wasn't introduced until the third season (along with color), no more black & white. The song was first introduced on a children's record, performed by the TV cast, and included verses about Barney and Betty Rubble as well as Dino. The first season used an instrumental piece of music called "Rise and Shine" that resembled the later Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show theme "Overture." When the series went into syndication, a standardized set of opening and closing credits was used for most episodes in order to remove references to first season sponsor Winston Cigarettes, thus all episodes now begin with "Meet the Flintstones". Although "Meet the Flintstones" was not used as the show's theme until several seasons into the show's run. The DVD release of season 1 reveals that the melody of the song was a major part of the show's score as early as the second episode, The Flintstones: The Flintstone Flyer (1960). 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 »
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, many episodes have incorrect closing credits. Last season episode debut,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."

It's sad how I can only find this show on Boomerang now. I have to hurry up and purchase the DVD before there is no more. I remember my mother saying that they still air the show, so there is no need to by the DVD. Now what she said is incorrect.
This show was a very great show to watch, along with the Jetsons. I remember having a fake car toy that I rode and pretend I was Fred Flintstone. This show had over 50 years of making kids love it. It's not too late. The Flintstones should air for another fifty, or hundred. There is no need to cancel it.
I recommend you to watch this show before it stops airing. It used to be one of the best shows on television.
