Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

The Christmas episode of the Flintstones was better than this. In fact aside from that and the Flintstone Christmas Carol, the other two Flintstone Christmas episodes left much to be desired. One big problem I had was Santa Claus. If this was the stone age, and everyone was walking around in there bare feet, why wouldn't Santa Claus? Even in the Flintstone Christmas episode, the Santas didn't have any boots on. I almost saw Santa in this like Gazoo was in the Flintstones -- coming from the future into the past to deliver toys. If Fred and Barney knew what boots were (Fred says to Barney, "Grab a boot"), and didn't question why Santa wore boots or what they were, then couldn't producers have made the Flintstones and their characters wear shoes and boots, even in their TV show? Another problem I had was that Fred and Barney were supposed to deliver toys in one night and made it back for the Christmas Party. I know the sleigh was on super-speed, but even so, the party should have ended long before Fred and Barney were done. Within seconds, the gifts for several countries were delivered. Even the spoiled brat kids were annoying in waiting for Santa. Other than all these problems, it was a fine cartoon, when it ended.
