Moonlight and Maintenance
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).

After visiting luxury apartments, Fred decides he wants to live there, so he moves with Wilma and Pebbles. In order to pay for the place, Fred takes a job at Bedrock Towers, a luxury high-rise apartment, moonlighting as the "resident stationary engineer". The luxury apartment features hysterical "high-tech" gadgetry, such as an automatic elevator operated by a brontosaurus with a rope around its neck and automated windows operated by a pair of monkeys perched on the outside windowsills. He finds that working two jobs is too hectic, and things really get sticky when Fred's boss, Mr. Slate, moves into Bedrock Towers at his wife's behest.
