The Flintstones

Flintstones, meet the Flintstones, They’re a modern stoneage family. From the, town of Bedrock, They’re a page right out of history. Let’s ride, with the family down the street, Through the courtesy of Fred’s two feet. When you’re, with the Flintstones, Have a yabba dabba doo time, A dabba doo time, You’ll have a gay old time!

Wow, how many times have you heard that theme song and sung along with it?  I grew up watching The Flintstones and loved it!  It was so much fun to see Fred and Barney unknowingly get themselves in over their head in almost every episode only to have Wilma and Betty lovingly get them out of it.  Who could forget Pebbles and Bam-Bam and of course their adorable pet dinosaur Dino!

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary for everyone's favorite modern stone-age family from the town of Bedrock, The Flintstones!  Even Google acknowledged this special occasion by creating a Flintstone "doodle" on their homepage.  The classic cartoon premiered on ABC on September 30, 1960. Pebbles CostumeGreat family cartoons such as The Flintstones and The Jetsons have always inspired people to dress up as their characters for Halloween.  It's not unheard of to see Fred and Wilma, Barney and Betty or even Pebbles and Bam-Bam trick-or-treating on Halloween night or winning first prize at costume parties!  Famous cartoon characters that make up television and movie costumes are always popular with both children and adults alike!
