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 Flintstone's top two characters, "Fred Flintstone", (voice of Alan Reed) "Wilma Flintstone" (voice of Jean Vander Pyl) and their nearby neighbors, the Rubble's, "Barney Rubble" (voices of Mel Blanc & Daws Butler and "Betty Rubble" (voices of Bea Benaderet, in first four seasons & Gerry Johnson, in seasons five and six) were originated from the four main characters and with extremely identical personalities, from The Honeymooners. Jackie Gleason was heavily tempted to sue the Hanna & Barbera studio, over The Flintstones's resemblances, (in animation) to The Honeymooners until friends pointed out to him that it might be bad for his current acting career image and heavily tarnish his acting career (from then on), if he became known as "the man who killed Fred Flintstone" & deeply weaken his popularity & acting career, with a negative note. If Gleason did go through,with his extremely heavy thought & temptation of suing Hanna & Barbera, he most likely would have been given the role of Sheriff, Buford T. Justice, in 1977's top theatrical comedy role in theatrical movies, Smokey and the Bandit & its sequel Smokey and the Bandit II. A Warner Brothers cartoon, Wild Wild World (1960) was also been cited as an additional influence, as a "trouble maker".
