Product Description

Man Called Flintstone, The

Amazon.com

One of the odder bits of pop culture cross-pollination from the 1960s, The Man Called Flintstone thrusts Fred Flintstone into the spy game for a feature-length animated musical adventure that's probably best appreciated by die-hard fans of the modern stone-age family. Released to theaters immediately after the network series left the air in 1966, Flintstone reunites the vocal cast from its final two seasons--Alan Reed as Fred, Mel Blanc as Barney, Jean VanderPyl as Wilma, and Gerry Johnson, who replaced Bea Bernadet as Betty--for this tale of mistaken identities and international intrigue. Veteran voice actor Paul Frees is secret agent Rock Slag, who is injured in his pursuit of the villainous Green Goose (Harvey Korman). His identical twin (Fred Flintstone, natch) is recruited to impersonate Slag and continue the chase in "Eurock," with Wilma, Barney and Betty in tow under the pretense of a joint family vacation. Flintstone has its moments, most notably a musical number featuring the voice of Louis Prima, but on the whole, it pales by comparison to the smart writing of the series (which addressed several of the feature's plotlines in individual episodes). Still, Reed, Blanc and the rest are game, and nostalgists may enjoy this rare feature-length outing, which has gone unseen save for sporadic TV broadcasts since its release. Flintstones scholars may note that Henry Corden, who took over as the voice of Fred Flintstone following Reed's death in 1977, provides Fred's singing voice in musical numbers. --Paul Gaita

Customer Reviews

Im so glad that I picked up this dvd.
Jeffrey G. Rhodes
The bad part is that you only get the movie, no features or anything, but that is good enough for me right now.

I remember this great movie as a kid and loving it.

In the midst of the mid- 'sixties spy craze came this 90 minute feature length film. It was Hanna- Barbera's second theatrical feature, the first being Hey There, It's Yogi Bear. Everything good about the Flintstones to date found its way into this 1966 movie, but this Columbia release (now Warner Bros.) also features seven songs and two different animation looks in the opening and closing title sequences. HB, to their credit, kept the loved look of the long running prime time TV show for the entire feature. The DVD release was held up for a long time due to various debacles, but amazingly, this release managed to keep the cel-look cover art, while the back features three title cards used in theaters.

The film is in English with French and Spanish subtitles, but other than that, there are no extra features, which seems surprising, but perhaps an enhanced version will be released if this one does well. All the classic characters are here: Alan Reed as Fred, Mel Blanc as Barney, Jean Vanderpyl as Wilma, Gerry Johnson as Betty, not to mention June Foray, Harvey Korman, Paul Frees, Don Messick, and Janet Waldo. The Man Called Flintstone, coming two years later, is more developed than Hey There, Yogi Bear, which is also a musical, and which also gave the HB art department a chance to experiment with different visual styles in the musical numbers.

This is a delightful film, well-drawn, fast paced, well-plotted, with the usual cartoon conundrums and domestic dilemmas, drawing to a satisfying denoument. In other words, three times the length, but following the formula of every Flintstones episode. Here though, the genius of this cartoon, in writing, character, and story, clearly shines, whereas in the episodes, it's easily taken for granted.

First, the one star review:

The difference between the Flintstones T.V. show and the Flintstones movie is huge, and left me with the impression that the writers of the movie never once watched an episode of the T.V. series.

The characters in the movie are vastly different from the characters in the T.V. show. Wilma, Betty, and Barney are barely in the movie, and when they are, they do not do any of the classic kind of Wilma, Betty, and Barney things. They are there simply to move the plot along. (They also have Barney chase after a pretty nurse in the beginning, which is not something that the T.V. Barney would do.)

It is the difference between the movie Fred and the T.V. Fred that sinks this movie. The character of the movie Fred has nothing to do with the T.V. Fred. The movie Fred does not get mad, threaten people, scheme to get away with things, yell, or even argue. The Fred Flintstone in this move is a watered down character, combine that with a dull plot, and crummy song and dance numbers, and it all adds up to a waste of time.

If you were looking at buying this movie to fill out your Flintstones collection, I would recommend you save your money - this is not the Flintstones.

The five star review:

My five star reviews is for The Flintstones as a movie for younger children. Several reviewers noted that their children love the movie, which makes a lot of sense. I remember as a young child not liking the Flintstones T.V. show because Fred was always mad, and always yelling at people. I was too young to understand that this was part of the joke. It was not until later, watching the show as an adult, that I got a lot of the humor. That is when I became a fan of the show.

In the '60s, cartoons made for the big screen had a charm all their own (check out the Pink Panther movie shorts). For Hanna Barbera, they would include Hey There It's Yogi Bear, The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones, and A Man Called Flintstone. When the Peanuts specials made animated featurettes on TV a regular feature, other animated specials tended to seem like drawn-out shorts with musical interludes. Not this one. A Man Called Flintstone is all savvy and style, with eye-catching graphic design and memorable songs built around the '60s spy craze, yet stays true to the original look and feel of The Flintstones (unlike later films which reversion the cartoons).

Quite sad how it's all tied up in litigation, of course, but cross your fingers and it might come out on DVD, and if you see it used, take a chance with our man Flintstone.

You'd expect Hanna Barbera to pull out their big guns early in the race to release every frame ever filmed onto DVD, but instead they chose to release such question marks as Scooby Doo and the Boo Brothers first. Well, we can only thank the powers that be that they decided to hold back on the collection of the Gary Coleman Show, becasue it means there's a spot in the schedule for H-B's first major motion picture, The Man Called Flintstone.

Featuring the original cast (Save for Gerry Johnson as Betty; Bea Benaderet had already passed on by this time) and semi-regular Harvey Korman (blessedly NOT as the Great Gazoo), the film is rife with classic filmic cliches like the person of importance that just happens to resemble a character on the show (a plot that was used in the series at least three times, a probable record) a few moments of mistaken identity, and all wrapped in a spy plot to take advantage of the James Bond craze.

Some of the best songs that were ever written for a Hanna-Barbera release, (okay, I can live without "Tickle Toddle") and some great art design make this a can't miss part of the Flintstone canon.

If you don't blink you'll see one of the weirdest product placements in history. Apparently, Qantas airways has been in business since prehistoric times, because that's the airline Fred and Co travel on to Eurock!

Took long enough to come out - don't take long picking it up.
