In this feature-length film based on the "Flintstones" TV show, secret agent Rock Slag is injured during a chase in Bedrock. Slag's chief decides to replace the injured Slag with Fred Flintstone, who just happens to look like him. The trip takes Fred to Paris and Rome, which is good for Wilma, Barney, and Betty-but can Fred foil the mysterious Green Goose's evil plan for a destructive missile without letting his wife and friends in on his secret?

An expansion on the classic TV series, intertwined with 'music videos' before there were such a thing. It has musical numbers, some trying to make a social comment on the times, like the kids singing 'someday when I grow up'. You have to remember that this was during the cold war, and at the beginning of the Vietnam war.
This movie has slightly better quality animation, and the familiar characters look a little more detailed like Hanna Barbera spent more $$. I guess with the backing of the Columbia Studio, they had more money to spend. This was also the end of the original Flintstones series, and what a way to go out!
It's just a so-so story, as far as The Flintstones go. They never were known for emmy award-winning writing, anyway!
I love the original series, whose first season is now on DVD. I remember seeing this at a 'kids matinée' when it was reissued at the theater in the 1970's. Viva La Flintstones!
