King for a Night
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).

When the King of Stonesylvania visits Bedrock, he decides he wants to rub shoulders with the common people, dead-ringer look alike Fred is hired to fill in for him for appearances. The plan begins to unravel when the king demonstrates little tolerance for the outside world and Fred does not like being a king much better. When Wilma mistakes the king for Fred, more troubles begin for both the king and Fred, but in the end, both men come clean and all is forgiven. Notes: This episode is a reworking of episode 22, "The Tycoon". The teaser is a scene from the middle of the episode.
