The Flintstone

YABBA DABBA DOO! Welcome to Bedrock, the home of your favorite characters from Hanna-Barbera like, Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty & many many more! This week here on DC Universe Infinite, DC Animated Club will be looking at the animated series, comics and many more stuff. We’ve alot of stuff to cover, so let’s get started…

Fun Trivia
Did you know before they were called Flintstone, they were going to be called Flagstone? Due to a copyrights from a comic, Hanna-Barbera decided on the name Flintstone instead.

Did you know that Dino was so popular that he had his own cereal?

Did you know that The Flintstone was based on a hit TV series ‘The Honeymooners’? When Jackie Gleason first heard about The Flintstone, he was going to sue Hanna-Barbera, thankfully somebody talk him out of it saying, “Don’t ruin this for the kids!” Gleason really does have a heart.

Did you know that the popular hit intro song didn’t started til the 3rd season? It had the cast of the show singing it!

In a tobacco documentary I had watched, there is a black and white advert of Fred hawking smokes. I forget which brand.

Winston! (They’re the ones responsible for destroying the distinction between “like” and “as” in American English.) Considering that The Flintstones was an adult-oriented animated sitcom, it wasn’t that out-of-place at the time.

Thought I answer my own questions, so here goes…:slightly_smiling_face:

  1. I would say Fred Flintstone and Barney Rumble, they are great.

  2. The Original show.

  3. To be honest I don’t watch alot of episodes to remember. I did like the early first season when Fred first display his singing ability.

  4. Yes & No, Yes it’s a first time rweading a whole series, But I have read the first issue.

  5. Probably issue one.

And there you have it.:grinning:

I demanded that we go on this “Ride,” when we went there in my youth, it was fun. Recently, we took a family vacation there, and now it’s the “Minions Ride,” which was also fun. The ride is an Imax like theater with motion seats.
