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 actor who portrays TV's "Superstone" walks off the job, Fred is recruited to fill in and play him, but he is framed by two thugs who knock him unconscious, dress in his costume (frequently muttering Superstone's yell, "Beh-heh-hee-HAH-hah"), and steal the cash box. Fred and Barney are able to find the true thieves down on the docks, based upon the strong clue that one of them keeps repeating, "Yeah, yeah: I'm hip, I'm hip!". The teaser is a preview from the middle of the episode.
