The Blessed Event
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).

In order to prepare for the new baby, Fred and Barney rehearse taking Wilma to the hospital. Then, the real thing happens and Wilma gives birth to a baby girl and names her Pebbles. Notes: Caricatures of "Dr. Ben Casey" and "Dr. Zorba" make a brief appearance (and appear again, in the season five episode "Monster Fred") with different voice actors.
