The Hit Song Writers
24 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).

Taking their cue from the book "There's Loot in Lyrics," Fred and Barney pen a song with the help of a scammer who plagiarizes Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust". When they unwittingly play this song for Hoagy and his agent, the agent throws them out of his office, but Hoagy forgives the two and after finding a poem Barney wrote, he puts the poem to music and invites the Flintstones and Rubbles to a special dinner where the song is performed. Note: Daws Butler is the voice of Barney in this episode and in season one episodes two, five, six, and nine (series episodes 30, 33, 34, and 37). Special guest-star Hoagy Carmichael appears as himself and actually wrote the song "Yabba-Dabba-Dabba-Dabba-Doo" for this episode.
