PFF - The Flintstones and Bedrock City, Custer, SD

The Flinstones is an animated television show bout a working class Stone Age family and their friends who lived in Bedrock. The show originated in 1960, and September 30, 2010 was the show's 50th anniversary of the show. The original show was called The Flintstones (1960-1966). There were a number of other shows about the Flinstones in later years (Wikipedia has a list of shows).

  1. I'm tempted, OK I can't resist, yabadabadoo.
    Happy PFF

  2. I loved the Flintstones! Yaba Daba Doo , indeed!!!! Happy PFF!

  3. Fun! I remember this being the first cartoon shown on evening TV, not the usual Saturday morning. And it had a lot of adult appeal, too. Kind of like an animated version of The Honeymooners.

  4. Never knew there was a Flinstones themes park, and even more, I can't believe it still exists! I did love the show.

  5. The Filnstones and Bedrock City almost got closed down recently. I'm sure glad they have stayed open!
