The Little Stranger
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).

Fred overhears portions of a conversation that Wilma and Betty have about taking in a little visitor and stranger and Fred thinks Wilma is having a baby. He asks his mother-in-law to stay to help Wilma with the arrival of their baby, but, to Fred's chagrin, the "little visitor" turns out to be the Flintstones' paperboy, Arnold, and one of the sources of much of Fred's anger and frustration. Verna Felton returns to voice Wilma's mother, Mrs. Slaghoople.
