The Patriot Resource TV Series

The Flintstones

The Flintstones made television history as the first ever animated program to air in primetime and remained the longest running until The Simpsons over thirty year later. A perfect alchemy of adult humor, outlandish plots and childish pranks, The Flintstones offered cartoon characters that, over time, appear even more human and multidimensional than many of their live-action TV situation comedy counterparts. But the biggest ongoing series treat - the one that hooks each new generation is the sight gag of dinosaurs performing as "modern" appliances such as lawnmowers, airplanes, vacuum cleaners, and garbage disposals. Legendary voice artist Mel Blanc gave life to Barney Rubble and Dino throughout the program's run. Combining adult humor, outlandish plots and childish pranks, the show was inspired by The Honeymooners. The series ran from 1960 to 1966.

In 1971, the Flintstones and Rubbles returned, but now Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm were the leads as teenagers and their parents were the supporting characters. The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show only lasted one season.
