Happy birthday to the flinstones
if you were a kid anytime from 1960 to the present, then you probably not only know the melody to the Flintstones song, but all the words as well. Producing 166 episodes, the Flintstones premiered on September 30, 1960 on ABC, and ran for six seasons. The final episode aired on April 1, 1966.
The Flintstones was the first animated situation comedy shown in primetime television, and it gained high ratings in its first season.
The Flintstones also broke new ground in that each episode contained only one story that lasted the full half hour. Until the 1960s, cartoons were generally only a few minutes long. Though The Flintstones got canceled in 1966, the series continued to have a strong afterlife in syndication.
Produced by Hanna-Barbera (William Hanna and Joe Barbera), The Flintstones was patterned after Jackie Gleason's The Honeymooners. Designed as a program for the entire family, the program did not appear as "children's television" until its rebroadcast by NBC in 1967.
Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their best friends, Barney and Betty Rubble, live in the prehistoric city of Bedrock but faces the problems of contemporary working-class life. After a day at the rock quarry, Fred and Barney arrive home in a stone-age vehicle with stone wheels and a fringe on top. Their lives revolve around their home, friends, and leisure activities: a world of drive-ins, bowling, and their "Water Buffalo" lodge. They have a baby dinosaur and a saber tooth tiger as the family dog and cat. In 1962 and 1963, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm appears as the daughter and adopted son of the Flintstones and Rubbles respectively.
This site is a dedication to the work of Hanna-Barbera, The Flintstones, and is only displayed out of a fans love. So, sit back in your rocking chair, grab some cactus cola, and enjoy the wonderful world of Bedrock.
By the way, the hardest line to remember is:
"Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet."
