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.'

    The famous theme song, "Meet the Flintstones", wasn't introduced until season three, and colorized. The song was first introduced on a children's record, performed by the TV cast, and included verses about Barney and Betty Rubble as well as Dino. The first two seasons used an instrumental piece of music titled "Rise and Shine" that resembled the later Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Show theme "Overture." When the series went into syndication, a standardized set of opening and closing credits was used for most episodes in order to remove references to first season sponsor Winston cigarettes, thus all episodes now begin with "Meet the Flintstones", in the Opening Credits. Although "Meet the Flintstones" was not used as the show's theme until season three's debut, "The Flintstones" (1960) {Dino Goes Hollyrock (#3.1)}, it was the theme song for the final 106 episodes, of the series' run. The DVD release of season one reveals that the melody of the song was a major part of the show's score as early as the second episode, "The Flintstones" (1960) {The Flintstone Flyer (#1.1)}.

    To capitalize on the then-current craze of "ghoul comedies" such as The Addams Family (1964) and The Munsters, the Gruesomes (Weirdly, his wife Creepella and their son Gobby) were introduced in the fifth season as the Flintstones' newest neighbors. But they appeared just twice. They were in "The Flintstones" (1960) {The Gruesomes (#5.9)} & "The Flintstones" (1960) {The Hatrocks and the Gruesomes (#5.19)}.
