The unmistakable Fred Flintstone is mistaken--for a famous internationalspy! Fred's exact double, famed secret agent Rock Slag, has been injuredon assignment. Now Fred must step into Slag's trench coat, and meet theexotic and notorious Tanya in Paris . . . so the Flintstones and theirneighbors, the Rubbles, leave on a trip that the others believe is avacation. But S.M.I.R.K. agents desperately try to foil Fred's meeting.Finally after chasing halfway across Europe, Fred discovers Tanya hasbeen the bait to trap him, or Rock Slag, that is. Although captured,Fred remains true to the spy's code and refuses to talk--no matter howmuch they torture Barney. At last, the real Rock Slag shows up andrescues the Flintstones and Rubbles in the comic caper The Man CalledFlintstone.

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

By Gord Wilson VINE VOICE on December 21, 2008
Format: DVD
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.

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.

I love this title so much that I almost hesitate to bring this up. Since Man Called Flintstone is now owned by Warner Brothers, they edited one of the biggest smiles from the opening titles. As the film was released theatrically by Columbia Pictures in 1966, Hanna Barbera took full advantage and replaced the woman with the torch in the Columbia Logo with Wilma holding a torch!I was surprised not to see that at the beginning, but understand. Why would Warners want to advertise Columbia on one of their properties?

This is a great movie I love the theme song I've always wanted this movie on DVD but when I read the comments about the absence of the Wilma Columbia presentation I said "Oh no", I don't know why they cut things out of theses DVDs people are spending good money to buy these DVDs intact. Oh well, I purchased the VHS and it was intact. This movie is something like the Flintstones episode with Madame Yes, great movie. I like the dancing scene and the scene when Fred and Wilma was Romeo and Juliet, very funny, Fred just couldn't get over that balcony, poor Fred, he wind up getting supernatural help. I'm glad I got this movie, the tape was brand new, I'm going to take care of this tape.

When my husband has young, he stood in a very long line to see this movie only to be picked up and taken back home before he could actually get in the theater. How devastating to a small child. In order to make up for the disappointment he experience in childhood, I decided to order this movie from Amazon and have my son give it to him as a Christmas gift. I thought it would touch the child inside him and maybe help to give him some closure. You should have seen the smile on his face. I knew it touched his heart and help him to write an new page to that childhood memory years ago.

If you are a Flintstones fan then you will enjoy this movie. The only drawback is strange scene sequence involving Pebbles and Bam Bam. I wish that they would do an edited version and take this sequence out because it detracts from the picture. This scene should have been left on the editing floor. It would have been better just to have shown them simply playing together if the movie producers needed to stretch the movie and also give the children more scene time. Other than that, it is a great movie to add to your Flintstone collection.

I don't understand why this movie isn't more of a cult classic. My dad loves the Flintstones, and he'd never even heard of it.

Classic animation, a really catchy and enjoyable sound track, Mel Blank, and just a sampling of good ol' fashioned cartoon racism. I watch this thing all the time.

I still don't know what an Ah-Ta-Shay is though. 4½ stars for that.
