So for Christmas we bought them tons of classic cartoons (the cartoons we liked to watch when we were kids) and they have fallen in love.

There's so much great content that one of the DVDs is even double sided!

While I am not yet aware of the extra's on this DVD set, I can tell you this about the 2nd season (1961-62). The 2nd season helped better establish the modern Stone-age family. In at least 6 of the episodes, Mel Blanc was absent due to illness so Daws Butler had to supply Barney Rubble's voice (thus making Barney sound more like Yogi Bear). New characters introduced are Mr. Slate, Fred's no-nonsense boss (voiced by John Stephenson; Mr. Slate had one cameo in the 1st season, but didn't look or talk at all like the Mr. Slate you probably remember), Arnold the smart allecky paperboy (voiced by Don Messick), Joe Rockhead, an alternative buddy of Fred's and Mrs. Slaghoople, Wilma's "battleaxe" mother (actually, Wilma's maiden name started out as Pebble but that name probably went out the window when their child Pebbles was born).

Highlights include a voice cameo from Hoaggy Carmichael (Fred warbles a cheezy rendition of "Stardust"), Fred and Barney not speaking to each other after Fred insults Barney ("Did you get the lisence of that truck, Betty?"), Barney gets a job working for Fred's company since Mr. Slate finds out he's his nephew, Wilma gets a job as emcee of the TV series The Happy Housewife Show leaving one not-so-happy husband to get his own dinner ("Make your hubby happy, keep your hubby happy... with Rockenspiel!"), Fred and Barney are judges of a beauty contest and women across town are trying to get their attention (leaving 2 understandably jealous wives), Fred goes on a gambling streak which winds up owing paperboy Arnold lots of money ("BET! Bet, bet bet...."), Dino gets a part on the Adventures of Sassie show with fred as Dino's agent ("At the end of the show, even the villains smile!

Turning the television world flat on its head, The Flintstones became the first animated hit series in prime time history. Set in the Stone Age town of Bedrock, the show explored the lives of ancient cave dwellers through the lens of a modern lifestyle, with bird beaks acting as phonograph needles, elephant trunks as vacuum cleaners, and fireflies as light bulbs. With its measured use of top-grade humor and clever visuals, The Flintstones became an instant smash hit - spawning decades of syndicated re-runs, spin-offs, and thousands of derivative products...

Loosely modeled after the hit show The Honeymooners, The Flintstones follows the lives of burly loudmouth Fred Flintstone (who has a heart of gold) and his wife Wilma (who puts up with him). The couple lives next door to best friends Barney and Betty Rubble, and they have a dog (a dinosaur) named Dino to keep them company. Following in the footsteps of shows such as I Love Lucy, the show's characters are always inventing hair-brained schemes, attempting to cover up little white lies, or engaging in some other form of behavior bound to get them in trouble. The Flintstones also features numerous cameo appearances parodying famous personalities from the early-sixties... In the show's later years, each couple would add a child to the mix with Fred & Wilma having Pebbles (a little girl) and Barney & Betty adopting Bamm-Bamm (a little boy)...

The Flintstones (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "The Hit Song Writers" in which Fred discovers that Barney is actually a talented poet. Introducing Barney to his songwriter friend Hoagy, the three produce a hit song that climbs the charts...
