I was lucky enough to stumble across this movie a while back during one of the very few times Cartoon Network decided to rerun it. Why this movie isn't out on DVD and in my collection right now, I have no idea. The creative team took a lot of care in recreating everything about the original show from the designs and voices from the very beginning, back in the early 1960's. They amped up the humor a bit for the 21st century but not much! They got the characters right, the look of the series right and most amazingly of all, they got someone who could perfectly mimic the voice of Alan Reed, the man who did Fred's voice originally.
I know some people were put off because these weren't the generic, lame version of the Flintstones from the '70's and later when pitching cereal. Well, they don't know their Flintstones. Or at least the original series. Here's hoping that someone has the smarts to finally put this out on DVD someday SOON!
