Old Lady Betty
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).

Betty gets a part-time job to earn money enough to get Barney a rocking chair. She runs errands for someone who she thinks is an elderly lady. So Betty disguises herself as an elderly lady as well with Wilma's help. The elderly lady, however is actually a counterfeiter gun moll named Greta Gravel and sends Betty to the store to buy small purchases with fake 100 dollar bills in order to get authentic money. Fred, Barney, and Wilma find out and help Betty get the counterfeiters captured.
