  2. My favorite episode IS with Pebble and Bam Bam though. It is the one
    with the kids' party and the office party.

    I also like the Ten Flintstones, episode too.

    Nah.. The absolute best Flintstones would have be to the James BondRock one,
    with Madame Yes
    and the "Judo-Chop Chop" =)

    Of course there are many many many many great ones, but that's my favorite.

    The worst of the worst was the Pebbles and Bam Bam show where fred and
    Barney were cops ? WTF was that about

  5. But do you prefur the ones before the kids enter their lives or after.

    Before, is more like the Honeymooners.

    There was one episode that guest starred the Hatrocks and the Grusomes.

    The was like the Honeymooners, Beverly Hillbillies and Munsters in the same
    Tom McCafferty, Mar 4, 2004
  6. All the episodes Everybody THINKS They Remember are usually from '64-'66
    A.P. (After Pebbles), through kitsch, bad memory, or
    afterschool-syndication childhoods--
    Gazoo, the Judo Chop, the Hatrocks, etc.

    But only TRUE Flintstones fans know the cutoff point was a few episodes
    into the A.P. era--Conventionally assumed to be *the* birth-of-Pebbles
    episode, but there were a few good two or three after.
    (The more generous extend the cutoff point to the end of Season 3--Can't
    leave the "Swedish Houseguests" episode out.)
    It was the end of Camelot not only for the series, but for the energy
    and humor of 60's Hanna-Barbera in general--After '63, they just...kind
    of gave up caring. (Snagglepuss notwithstanding.)

    Now, as for which is the *TRUE* era of B.P. (Before Pebbles) Flintstones
    greatness--the loopy Michael Maltese/Warren Foster first season and its
    Jack Benny Show influences, or the virtuoso verbal surrealism of the
    seven second-season Larry Parkes episodes ("Flintstone at Princestone",
    "The Missing School Bus")--the debate shall always continue.

    pop-culture-jackass Ann-Margrock jokes)

  7. Some people thought the cartoons were TOO LOUD!!!! Like when Wilma is taking
    Judo lessons, then practises on Fred once, and Frog Mouth!

    Silly me for asking but what the heck? I've had the 1st season collection of
    Flintstones for about a yr now, got it around the same time I picked up the
    Scooby collection of Season 1&2. Did they decide to release another
    variation of the set or something?
