Undeniably My Favorite Flintstone Episode
20 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

I saw this episode before I got a chance to rewatch Jonny Quest from when I was terribly young, but I still recognized nearly all the music here from Quest.

I think some part of the kid I was then became annoyed with what Dr. Sinister was after, which was all a case of mistaken identity, but what did a kid know of something like that? Nevertheless, the episode stuck with me and I truly think it has to be my favorite of them all.

Hands down the best part is Jean Vander Pyl's Madame Yes, but the entire episode, with Sinister wanting to make Fred and Barney partners.

We also get two amusing 'expendable' characters who meet untimely fates. Truly a standout Flintstones episode.

Barney's pleas to be rescued from Madame Yes by Dr. Sinister is too rich.

"I'm too important to be captured!"
