“Flintstones, meet the Flintstones, they’re a modern stone-age family.” Thus opens the catchy theme of the primetime series that boldly went where no animated show had gone before, into the record books as the first adult-targeted cartoon and longest-running series of its genre. The family shenanigans of Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty and their children were fresh and groundbreaking for the day. The notion of a “modern” cave society using dinosaurs, stone and wood in outrageously inventive ways was the gimmick that kept on giving, similar to the appeal of futuristic sci-fi characters casually using high-tech gadgetry to make life simpler.
