Fred prepares for a big ball game between the Slate quarry and another company. He feels so confident since he heard some "big league" scouts might be around for the game. However, all's not going well for Fred as he is unable to complete the game either on offense or defense. A young employee, Roger Marble, takes over his place...and his uniform and help the team win. Two major league scouts from the Boulder City Giants, Leo Ferocious and Casey Stangel noticed him, but mistaken for Fred. He gets the offer, but his over-inflated ego irates both families, especially when they try to make him think it is Roger Marble who deserves to be a big leaguer... Written by RealLiveClaude

Big League Freddie
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 tries out for a Major League Baseball team. Fred is injured during his tryout while his friend Roger Marble (an animated caricature of Roger Maris) takes over for him. When Roger is picked, he is mistaken for Fred who, after much pressure, comes clean.
