A Haunted House Is Not a Home
25 October 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The Flintstones is an animated, prime-time American television sitcom that was broadcast from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966, on ABC. The show, produced by Hanna-Barbera, fancifully depicted the lives of a working-class Stone Age man, his family, and his next-door neighbor and best friend.

The show's continuing popularity rested heavily on its juxtaposition of modern everyday concerns in the Stone Age setting. The Flintstones was the most financially successful network animated franchise for three decades, until The Simpsons debuted. In 2013, TV Guide ranked The Flintstones the second Greatest TV Cartoon of All Time (after The Simpsons).

Fred's Uncle Giggles fakes his death and pretends that he has left his fortune to Fred. In order to get the fortune, Fred was required to stay overnight at Giggles' haunted house where it appears that Fred nearly gets killed. The next morning, Fred's Uncle Giggles shows up and says the whole thing was a joke. Notes: A spoof on horror classic House On Haunted Hill. The teaser is a scene from the middle of the episode.
