The Flintstones and the Rubbles are modern stone-age families. Fred and Barney work at Slate and Company, mining rock. Fred gives Barney some money so he and Betty can adopt a baby. When Fred and Barney take a test to determine who should become the new associate vice president, Barney returns the favor by switching his test answers for Fred's, whose answers aren't very good. Fred gets the executive position, but little does he know that he's being manipulated by his boss to be the fall guy for an embezzlement scheme.Written by

Mitch Markowitz was hired to write the script. His version was said to be a cross of The Grapes of Wrath (1940). Markowitz commented that "I don't even remember it that well, but Fred and Barney leave their town during a terrible depression and go across the country, or whatever that damn prehistoric thing is, looking for jobs. They wind up in trailer parks trying to keep their families together. They exhibit moments of heroism and poignancy." This was apparently too sentimental for Richard Donner. See more »

The Universal Pictures logo is designed in Bedrock fashion: it features a prehistoric Earth with the single continent of Pangaea and reads "Univershell". It is also accompanied by the 1960s theme music from Revue Productions (which Universal owned), which is fitting for a 1960s cartoon adaptation. See more »
I remember in kindergarten, i LOVED hannah barbara. this, outside of the smurfs, was my favorite, and when i heard there was a movie, i was excited! so i recorded it, and saw it and 4.8? i'd give it atleast a 6.8. it has the spirit of the original, has the humor of the original and the sets are actually good. so is the acting. but with stars like John Goodman, Rick Moranis, Elizabeth Taylor, Harvey Korman, Jonathan Winters and even Hannah Barbara cameoing, how can i not love this? it is the definition of a guilty pleasure. the only flaws i would say is rosie o'donnel as betty was dumb, i would've casted someone like jennifer tilly, and the villain's plan is complicated, but still, go see it. you'll atleast laugh once
