The Flintstones

This popular animated television cartoon featured two Stone Age families, the Flintstones and their neighbors, the Rubbles. Much of the humor was based on its comic portrayals of modern conveniences, reinterpreted using Stone Age 'technology.' Most notably were their cars, complete with absence of floorboards to allow them to be 'foot-powered.'

    In the Closing Credits, of seasons of 3, 4, 5 & 6, the saber-toothed cat immediately runs back into the Flintstones house, just after Fred took it out, for the night, and it puts Fred out the front door, (just like "return to sender"). It can be seen three times, first in "The Flintstones" (1960) {Nuttin' But the Tooth (#3.12)}. Second is "The Flintstones" (1960) {The Blessed Event (#3.23)}. And the third, is in the opening minutes of "The Flintstones" (1960) {Pebbles' Birthday Party (#5.4)}. After being rudely awakened, it verbally & quickly said "That does it. I'm turning myself in at the animal shelter. At least I can get a night's sleep" (it then immediately ran away, especially to avoid any more of Fred Flintstone's extremely loud snoring).
