Flintstones, The: A Flintstones Christmas Carol (DVD)

When Fred Flintstone stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in the Bedrock Community Players production of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, his ego swells to the size of a Tyrannosaurus, and he starts to become like embittered old miser he is to portray. But by the time the curtain closes on the play, Wilma, Barney and Pebbles help Fred learn the true meaning of Christmas.

Well, I can't say this is the best version I have seen, and I am not sure Charles Dickens would be overly impressed with this. And, I would sooner use the "Muppets' Christmas Carol" to help someone understand the story. But aside from that, the movie is quite clever. Despite the unorthodox acting of the Flintstones, the Rubbles, Mr. Slate, Dino, and others, the story is told fairly well. What I found quite entertaining was that this is the first version of "A Christmas Carol" I have seen where backstage squabbles make up a fair portion of the movie. And in all honesty, there is something very funny about seeing the actors perform in at least partial harmony on stage, and then seeing them argue backstage between the scenes. And the part of the story which involves Fred getting too much into character is actually quite realistic. While this is not the best version of Dickens' classic, and while I would not use it to teach someone the story, it is a delightful movie to watch after you have a healthy understanding of the story.

I have this on video and I really enjoy watching it. I think the Flintstone's version of Dicken's classic is really interesting. The "Bedrock Bug" concept is funny too. This is highly recommended. Oh, I also liked the line by Philo, the cop: "You'd better get the stars out of your eyes and watch where you're going."

Seriously, folks, this Hanna-Barbera adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens book is not bad. Fred Flintstone takes on the role of Ebenezer Scrooge (and is full of it) while wife Wilma manages the show off and on stage. One cast member after another comes down with the 'Bedrock Bug,' a flu-like illness which turns its victims green and disables them for at least 24 hours. Fred must pull off the role of a lifetime and redeem himself to his family before the Bug finds him. Faithful to the story, and imaginative at times; I don't see Dickens' ghost getting restless over this.

I loved this Flintstones adaptation of the classic carol!! Fred and Betty are voiced by different people but Barney and Wilma are voiced by the original people. I have always loved the Flintstones and this is very cute! This dvd also includes an original Christmas episode from season five of the Flintstones, which I was also pleased to see! If you like the Flintstones you will appreciate this DVD, even if Fred has a bit of a different voice!

This DVD was exactly what I was looking for. My brother and I used to watch this Christmas special on cartoon network every Christmas, and boy was it good to bring it all back. In addition to original sound and picture quality (without commercial breaks), this DVD came with some extra features, too, like a bonus episode, all for only $6!

It was just as I remembered! We enjoyed watching the "Flintstones Christmas Carol" very much! It is definitely kid friendly and not "dark" like the original Dickens "Christmas Carol". The whole family can enjoy this movie together for the holidays!

A "must have" for families of all ages. The Flintstones was my "all-time" favorite childhood cartoon. What a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit with a retelling of the "Christmas Carol" as prehistorically told by Fred, Barney, Wilma and Betty.

This 1994 production (years and years after the original show even left syndication) falls far short of the original series. It's decent, better at some points than others. The actual "A Christmas Carol" play portion--Fred plays Scrooge while Wilma is forced to play almost every other character since the original cast members keep falling ill--is better than the scenes leading up to it, but even that doesn't get better than average. It wouldn't be worth messing with on its own.

Now the reason why this gets four stars instead of three is because one extra included is "Christmas Flintstone," which IS an episode in the original series. I had forgotten (or maybe never realized) just how good that show was. The writing is snappy, the timing of the voice actors is spot on and even the animation is fairly good despite the bad rep of Hanna-Barbera. This program is delightful; Fred gets a job working as a department-store Santa, only to end up being asked to take over the duties of the real Claus when he--guess what?--gets sick. On its own, this is a five-star piece.
