Wilma and Betty received two invitations to a ball. However, when they tell their husbands, they feel uncomfortable about the subject. Though they never told their wives, Fred and Barney both have "two left feet". In order to sneak out and take secret dance lessons, Fred and Barney join the "Joe Rockhead's volunteer firemen", where men can go out to different events, waiting for a fire call from Joe himself. But Wilma and Betty suspect something, and one night they decide to make a phony fire call. Written by RealLiveClaude

Arthur Quarry's Dance Class
24 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 and Barney sign up for dance lessons at Arthur Quarry's so that they do not humiliate themselves at the charity ball. Their excuse that they have joined the volunteer fire department falls apart when Betty and Wilma realize that the all-stone town of Bedrock is fireproof. The wives then suspect that their husbands are slipping out to meet other women.
