Storyline

In this feature-length film based on the "Flintstones" TV show, secret agent Rock Slag is injured during a chase in Bedrock. Slag's chief decides to replace the injured Slag with Fred Flintstone, who just happens to look like him. The trip takes Fred to Paris and Rome, which is good for Wilma, Barney, and Betty-but can Fred foil the mysterious Green Goose's evil plan for a destructive missile without letting his wife and friends in on his secret?

Alternate Versions

The film was dubbed twice in Hungary: first in 1978, then in 2006, in conjunction with the two separate dubs produced for the actual series. Like the show itself, the film's entire dialogue was rendered in playful verse with constant rhymes, alliterations and puns. Since the series was popular with Hungarian adults, the plot was also rewritten to focus on drug trafficking rather than a simple world domination scheme. The Green Goose (called "Zöldfejü Keselyü" or "Green-Headed Vulture") in the dub is a drug lord who wants to overdose the world on cocaine. The title was changed to "Frédi, a csempész-rendész" or "Freddie the Smuggler-Copper". Another quirk of the original dub was the complete replacement of the American music and sound effects. The second dub kept these intact. See more »

A good follow up to the original show!
14 April 2001 | by AbeStreetSee all my reviews

I grew up watching the re-runs of the original Flintstones and tried to avoid the new Flintstone shows. Some of these new shows had the kids all grown up and many of the original voices were not used or not available. However, the original show, especially before the Great Gazoo(sp) was bought into the series, were great. The only real follow up to the original show that was any good was The Man Called Flintstone.

This movie had most of the original voices, except for Betty, and has a good story line. Fred fills in as a substitute for an injured spy and takes on James Bond type missions.

I found this film held my attention and when I watch it now it brings back the good memories from when I was a kid. I hope the DVD is released soon.
