On Christmas Eve Day, Fred finally agrees to play Santa Claus for a benefit event. However, those plans have to be put on hold that night when the real Santa Claus sprains his ankle falling off Fred's roof. With no other option, Santa asks Fred and Barney to continue his delivery itinerary for him and they agree to the task. Throughout that night, the pair find the job unusually difficult, but Santa and his support crew are ready to help. Written by

I'm not really sure how Christmas can exist in a prehistory setting, but I tried not to let this spoil my enjoyment.
Fred is roped into playing Santa Claus by his boss for a bunch of underprivileged kids, but the real Santa falls off his roof and sprains his ankle, forcing Fred to take his place.
As Xmas Specials go it's certainly one of the better ones. But it gets off to an iffy start when they recycle a song, frame-by-frame, from the dull as ditchwater 1972 Special 'A Christmas Story', thankfully the rest is all Flintstones. And without the distracting laugh track which frequently spoiled enjoyment of the TV show.
