Betty Rubble: [on the phone with Wilma] They haven't spoken to each other for five days. I'm sick and tired of it. I told him to go right over and make up with Fred.
Wilma Flintstone: What did he say?
Betty Rubble: He absolutely refused. So I said to him "I'm going to invite my mother to come visit for a few weeks if you don't".
Wilma Flintstone: Really? What'd he say to that?
Barney Rubble: [poking his head in the door] Hiya Wilma!

The evolution of the Flintstones
21 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Plot of this episode is very similar to The Honeymooners episode in which Ralph and Ed feud over a co-purchased TV, except here, it is a swimming pool instead. The Fred and Barney drawings are not quite finalized yet, nor is Barney's voice. But the story is a good sample of the series. Both Wilma and Betty have good parts as well. You may notice that the footage from the pilot is used also. Speaking of the Flintstones origins, check out, Granite Hotel(1940). As for the music, already perfect. It shows how Hanna and Barbera were at their peak in this area already. Daws Butler, who also did the voices for Huckleberry Hound and Yogi Bear is a featured voice. He was also heard in a Hanna-Barbera record album, Yogi Bear and the Three Stooges meet the Mad Mad Mad Dr. No No, playing virtually all the roles, except for the actual The Three Stooges!
