Flintstones, The: The Complete First Season (Repackage/O-Sleeve/DVD)

Join the fun in the town of Bedrock with the this fabulously famous modern Stone-Age family. Mowing the lawn with a saw-toothed dinosaur, showering with water sprayed from a woolly mammoth's trunk and eating brontosaurus burgers are everyday events for the lovable Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their friends Barney and Betty Rubble. Living in prehistoric times has its drawbacks, but the Flintstones and their neighbors survive in style. So have a yabba-dabba-doo time with the The Flintstones.

Well, maybe having just celebrated a milestone birthday, I was feeling like re-capturing my youth. Perhaps that explains why I put this set and the "Jetson's" on my wish list and was given them on my birthday. Regardless, this is one of the best DVD sets around. The artwork and picture quality, especially the color, is amazing. Being too young to see this as a prime time show, I enjoyed it as part of after school cartoons. One possible explanation on why the color is so amazing is that I watched the show in black and white as an adolescent.

I have to disagree with some other reviewers here in regards to the extra material. I think it is outstanding. The bonus material includes the original pilot called "The Flagstones" and some wonderful time period commercials and promos for the show. That is my favorite part of the set.

The episodes are longer than I remember, as they have been restored to their original length. Like the "Jetson's" one can really see the 60's influence. From the music to the terminology it is easy to see why this was simply an animated sitcom for the time.

I have not had the chance to view more than just the first disc and bonus materials, but will be glad to pop this in when I need that nostalgia fix. The DVD packaging and presentation is simply superb. If you have fond memories of this show, then it is worth it to buy the set. Well done.

Before Matt Groening and pals introduced us to "The Simpsons," Joseph Barbera and William Hannah produced a little show called "The Flintstones." Season "1" was first aired on ABC during 1960 and has been syndicated in perpetuity throughout the known universe ever since.
Episode Guide:
(Screen Test) The Flagstones: Admittedly, I've never seen the screen test (discovered in 1993) and cannot even vouch for it's inclusion in the DVD set-one can only hope.
(1) The Flintstone Flyer: Barney invents a flying machine (the Barney Copter) which he later loses to his over-bearing best friend. The duo uses the machine to ditch their wives and go bowling, thus setting the stage for years of adventures.
(2) Hot Lips Hannigan: Fred relives his glory days as a singer in his high school band as he jams with an old pal.
(3) The Swimming Pool: Fred and Barney construct a pool spanning across their backyards...a hilarious power struggle ensues.
(4) No Help Wanted: Having cost his friend his job, Fred finds Barney a new job as a repo man. Enter Dino.
(5) The Split Personality: Following a blow to the noggin' Fred becomes his more refined alter, Frederick.
(6) The Monster from the Tar Pits: Gary Granite is filming in Bedrock and lucky Fred finds a part in the film..., as his stunt double.
(7) The Babysitters: Fred and Barney shirk their responsibilities and bring a baby to a friends house to watch the big fight. BYOB?
(8) At the Races: Fred and Barney rely on gambling for a quick-fix solution. Do you think they win?
(9) The Engagement Ring: Barney purchases a ring for Betty but Wilma discovers the ring and assumes it was for her... Instead of spending five minutes explaining the situation, Barney decides to enter a boxing contest with The Champ.

Basically an animated version of The Honeymooners set in the Stone Age, The Flintstones was the first prime-time cartoon series made especially for television. Created and produced by animation pioneers William Hanna & Joseph Barbera, The Flintstones remains one of the most globally recognized animated programs to date, with an opening theme song ("Meet The Flintstones") that practically everyone knows the words to.

The original first season Flintstones theme was the instrumental 1960 main title "Rise and Shine" composed by musical director Hoyt Curtin, who provided the show's distinctive musical cues. "Meet the Flintstones" emerged in 1961 with lyrics written by series co-creator William "Bill" Hanna.

The exceptional voices were provided by Alan Reed as Fred Flintstone, dino-operator/quarry worker; Jean Vander Pyl as Wilma Flintstone, his wife; Mel Blanc as Barney Rubble, Fred's bosom buddy and lifelong pal; and Bea Benaderet as Betty Rubble, Barney's wife. June Foray provides Betty's voice in the Flagstones pilot which is included in this collection.

Despite the notoriously simple art direction (thick black lines, etc.) presented in the first season, it remains my favorite because the simple art style complements the Honeymooners-inspired dialogue and situations, in addition to Hoyt Curtin's uncanny musical feel of the show. A classic show inspired by a classic show!

I'm setting here watching this disc set....again. It's beautiful color and sound make it well worth having. This show is my favorite animated series. I grew up with this prime time show that aired from September 30th,1960 on ABC at 8:30 Friday night to September 2nd, 1966. The teem of Hanna-Barbera sure did well with this and numerous other shows. Anyone who grew up in the sixties as I did sure had some great shows to watch, and now they're classics. This DVD set is in a beautiful and colorful package. It's well designed. Another GREAT feature is that they use the original opening and closing for the show. They used this opening for the first two season before going to the all too familiar open and song. This set is a MUST FOR ever house hold. Please buy this DVD set...you won't be unhappy.
