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

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 »
When aired on USA, the movie featured scenes cut from the final releases and made for TV viewing, as Universal often does.
A scene of Fred activating the garage door and pedaling the Flintmobile inside;
Wilma cutting the tail off his zebra suit he wore on his first day of being an executive followed by him saying they're gonna go find the biggest steak in the world and that Wilma would cook it;
Extra dialogue from Cliff when he threatens to fire Fred unless Fred fires Barney;
Wilma, Betty and the kids walking to the clothing store;
Barney at an unemployment office;
Extra dialogue in the meeting room where Fred says that the model factory could never build full sized houses;
Wilma pretending her car broke down at the gates of Slate & Company in order to knock out the guard so she and Betty could go in and get the Dictabird.
1st watched 1/12/2003 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Brian Levant): Well-made live action imitation of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon series. Maybe it's because Hanna & Barbera were involved and were two of the executive producers of the movie as well as having small roles in the production. Besides this, this classic tale of life in the stone age had tremendous casting in the way of John Goodman(Fred Flintstone), Rick Moranis(Barney Rubbel) and the entire group for that matter. The movie starts with the Rubbel family adding a new member in the adopted Bam-Bam and then the rest of the movie matches pretty much the way the two families lived their lives & worked together as neighbors in the prehistoric town of Bedrock. Of course there is evil-a-foot within a demented man in a higher position in the stone quarry who tries to frame Fred and the rest of the movie is a culmination of all this. What is great about the movie & the series the Flintstones is that no matter what trouble they got in, the families always patched it up in the end showing us what true friends our made of. And besides all this the movie was funny & visually appealing too !!
