Yabba Dabba Ho

Bart Simpson once put it best when he said that TV writers have been milking the 'Christmas Carol' goat for years. Nearly every established animated franchise (as well as some sitcoms and soaps) have cut and pasted Charles Dickens' novel over the years, from Mickey Mouse to Mr. Magoo.

The Flintstones manage to do it a little bit better though, by giving the story a meta-fictional edge, much like Scrooged. Fred is busy preparing for his role as Ebenezer Scrooge for the Bedrock Community Theatre, so much so that he's been neglecting his own friends and family in order to boost his performance. The line between fantasy and reality blurs as Fred/Scrooge is scared straight by the three ghosts,

A very good Xmas Special, though I'm still not sure how the holiday is exists in the prehistoric era, or how a 19th century novel manages to exist either. Either way, it certainly worth watching.
