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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
