The final full-length Flintstones project for the original voice of Wilma (Jean Vanderpyl), Bamm Bamm Rubble (Don Messick), and longest running voice of Fred Flintstone (Henry Corden, the second Fred from 1977-2000). Jon Stephenson, the original voice of Mr. Slate, would later voice the character in The Flintstones: On The Rocks. Whereas death is usually the cause of a replacement actor for the Flintstones (with the notable exception of Betty Rubble, who had two different voices in the original series, and has been voiced by a different actress in virtually every new Flintstones encarnation), Corden was not asked to return for that project, making this the longest running Fred and Wilma's swan song.

Not quite classic status, but a nice Flintstone twist on the timeless story
A Flintstone Christmas Carol was very good. I loved the twist on one of the all-time great Christmas stories A Christmas Carol especially, however it doesn't quite make classic status for me. Is it as good as the TV show? No it isn't, but as well as putting the twist to Christmas Carol, it does make an effort to stick to the show's spirit. If anything, I wish this cartoon was a little longer, and one or two parts are a little uneven in pace, but that's all I have to say that's negative really. The animation is good, it has a colourful and charming feel to it. The music was also very nice, quite heart-warming and melodious, and the story is of course great. I loved the writing overall too, while there are some funny lines there are also some touching parts without feeling mawkish. The characters are still likable, and step into the Dickens characters' shoes with aplomb. It was a delight in itself seeing who was who. And the voice acting is fine, and like the special itself all the voice actors do make some effort to stick to the original voices which is no easy feat(especially in Mel Blanc's case). Overall though, it was a nice special and definitely worth re-visiting. 8/10 Bethany Cox
