Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Meet The Flintstones in this prehistoric Hanna-Barbera production. Primetime's first animated series was also the longest running until The Simpsons came along. Not so coincidentally, the two shows aren't all that different--even if the former emerged in the sixties, the latter in the eighties. Fred (Alan Reed), patriarch of the cave-dwelling clan, may be marginally more intelligent than the similarly blue collar Homer, but most storylines still revolve around his more dunderheaded moves. Fortunately, wife Wilma (Jean Vander Pyl) and Barney (Mel Blanc) and Betty Rubble (Bea Benaderet), their neighbors, are usually able to set things right. That was also true for Ralph Cramden of The Honeymooners, a direct influence (Reed even sounds like Jackie Gleason). But Ralph didn't have a pet dinosaur and he did live in the Modern Age--if you can call the fifties "modern"--rather than the Stone Age.

This long-awaited DVD set includes all 28 episodes of the first season, including the lost Flagstones pilot. Notable segments include "Hot Lips Hannigan"--one of several riffs on beatnik culture--in which Fred, aka "The Velvet Smog," sings and Barney beats the traps and "The Creature From the Tar Pits," in which Fred fills in as Gary Granite's stunt double in a Bedrock-set horror flick.

The Flintstones's first season introduced two timeless couples from another time. Its success led to a theatrical release, two live-action features, and countless specials and spin-offs. New viewers may be surprised to find that Dino doesn't make his official entrance until episode 18 ("The Snorkasaurus Story"), that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm aren't in the first season at all, and that the famous theme won't hit the airwaves until the third (replacing instrumental "Rise and Shine"). Those quirky quotes, however, were in effect from the start: "Wiiilmaaaaaaa!," "Droll, very droll" and, especially, "Yabba-dabba-doo!!!" --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

The Flintstones was pitched to the network as an animated version of Jackie Gleason's The Honeymooners. Now the honeymoon never has to end with this 4-disc set of the 28 episodes of the entire (pre)historic first season, full of terrific extras and trivia that will make fans shout "Yabba dabba doo!"

Format: DVD
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.

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.

To the Viewer from Seattle: "If anything, The Flintstones embraces every deplorable aspect of what would eventually become known as abusive and dysfunctional marriages."
Chill out man, it's just a cartoon!

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.
This is a family like "I Love Lucy", "The Honeymooners" and others that you came to love as friends and loved to watch every week. Here are the first seasons titles and air dates along with dates yhat they were filmed.
