I love this episode!
8 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the episode where Fred yells "Yabba-dabba die, yi yi yi!" Then the teenagers imitate it! I love the part where Fred has a dream that he travels the globe teaching everybody "The Frantic." This includes a trip to Washington to teach a stone-age cartoon LBJ! The imitated "Flintstone Flop" part is hilarious! The Beau Brummels appear as the "Beau Brummelstones," singing their hit "Laugh Laugh." This was a parody of a popular dance show at the time called "Shindig." Dance shows such as this were popular in the mid 60's, including "Shinding," "Hulabaloo," and "American Bandstand." Anyway, I think the whole take was hilarious!
