Storyline

This popular animated television cartoon featured two Stone Age families, the Flintstones and their neighbors, the Rubbles. Much of the humor was based on its comic portrayals of modern conveniences, reinterpreted using Stone Age 'technology.' Most notably were their cars, complete with absence of floorboards to allow them to be 'foot-powered.' Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Crazy Credits

First season episodes incorporated an ad for Winston Cigarettes into the opening credits (this version of the opening was removed for syndication). Due to the decision to use a standard opening and closing for syndicated versions of the episodes, numerous episodes have incorrect closing credits. Sixth & last season episode debuted with, The Flintstones: No Biz Like Show Biz (1965) dropped the "Meet the Flintstones" closing credit song, in favor of footage of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm singing "Let the Sunshine In." (a reminder of Fred Flintstone's dream, earlier in the musical program). See more »

Alternate Versions

The show was broadcast in black-and-white for the first two seasons (1960-1962), although all materials (episodes, Winston cigarette commercials, and opening/closing sequences) were always produced in color (thus the color versions of the "Rise and Shine" opening/closing credits that now air).

It's sad how I can only find this show on Boomerang now. I have to hurry up and purchase the DVD before there is no more. I remember my mother saying that they still air the show, so there is no need to by the DVD. Now what she said is incorrect.

This show was a very great show to watch, along with the Jetsons. I remember having a fake car toy that I rode and pretend I was Fred Flintstone. This show had over 50 years of making kids love it. It's not too late. The Flintstones should air for another fifty, or hundred. There is no need to cancel it.

I recommend you to watch this show before it stops airing. It used to be one of the best shows on television.
