Friday Funnies: The Flintstones
This week, I'm sharing a classic clip from The Flintstones. It's amazing how well this holds up--it certainly gave me some laughs. Although these days, The Flintstones is usually thought of as a children's cartoon, it actually started life as a Prime Time television series, that satirised The Honeymooners, a popular sitcom of the day. Fred Flintstone was a parody of Jackie Gleeson. In later years, The Flintstones was endlessly repeated during children's viewing slots on television, earning it a reputation as being for children, rather than a prime time comedy suitable for a wider audience.
