The Flintstones

The article written by Jan Gallagher

The Flintstones is definitely my most favorite animation cartoon. It is staged in the Stone Age. Fred and Barney are the key characters of this comedy-filled cartoon show. Fred, a chubby and weird looking character, lives with wife, Wilma, and daughter, Pebbles. Pebbles is an adorable baby with beautiful red hair. The Flintstones family also has a pet dinosaur called Dino. Like any pet, Dino always rushes to the door to lick Fred whenever he returns from work. The only problem, though, is that Dino's weight always makes Fred falls to the ground.

Another character of The Flintstones show is Barney Rubble. He is a short fellow, and is also Fred's best friend, at least until they have a fight and swear not to talk to each other. Barney lives with his wife, Betty, and son, Bamm Bamm. They all live in Bedrock. Fred works as an operator of a dinosaur-power crane at the Rock Hard Quarry Cave Construction Company. He is a loud-mouth person and only thinks of himself. Fred and Barney are members of the Water Buffalo lodge and love bowling. Barney is a kind and honest person who is always willing to help Fred. Fred, on the other hand, always takes advantage of Barney. This animation cartoon was show on TV in the 60s and many people still watch it. I enjoy watching this show on
