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 ... See full summary »
The Flintstones is my favorite TV series from Hanna/Barbera, and this is a Flintstone TV special I had never seen before, until I watched it on TV while I was in middle school. It came on a few times, and I taped it, and now it has become another TV special I love.
Anyway, the story starts when Fred won a vacation in Rocksylvania on the "Make A Deal or Don't" game show. He, Wilma, Barney and Betty are to spend a night at Count Rockula's castle, which has now been turned into a tourist resort, and attend a costume ball known as "The Rocksylvania Monster Bash." Unfortunately, before joining their wives at the Monster Bash, Fred and Barney accidentally stumble across Rockula's old laboratory, where his unfinished Frankenstone monster sleeps, and forget to close the window while leaving the lab. Lightning subsequently strikes the machines in the lab, and provide Frankenstone with life. Frankenstone awakens Rockula from his secret crypt, and the two scare all the tourists and the working staff out of the hotel, except for the Flintstones and the Rubbles, who had gone to bed early. Of course, while Fred & Barney have a late-night snack of the left-over buffet table downstairs, Rockula & Frankenstone check the rooms, to see if anyone is still there. Eventually Rockula spies Wilma sleeping and mistakes her as his long-lost bride and vows to make her his - even if it means killing Fred.
Like I said: I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love this Halloween special from beginning to end.
