Way before Stone Age Smackdown
10 October 2016 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I still have very fond memories of this episode. And for once, Barney do quite a ribbing to Fred about thinking his newborn daughter can talk.

But the main thing is the wrestling event which Fred, Barney...and Pebbles attend after a simple redeeming. The episode was an tribute for all wrestling TV shows shown at the time.

And imagine the names: Shorty Shortstone (a midget), Bronto Crushrock (a tribute to real wrestler Crusher Risowski) and the Masked Mauler (tribute to possibly the Destroyer, as he screwing his opponents' leg while speaking to Pebbles during the fight)...

An entertaining episode indeed... and guess who's the champ ?
