Yabba Dabba Doo! Today Is The 50th Anniversary Of The Flintstones

Long before “The Flintstones” were a lunchtime and afterschool favorite for kids across North America, the show debuted as a prime time comedy series on ABC on September 30th, 1960. It lasted six seasons on television, and the franchise has been featured in theme parks, two live-action movies, and assorted merchandise including chewable children’s vitamins.

HERE are 15 things we bet you didn’t know about the cult children’s cartoon.

  1. Larry, I still have that Flintstones original storyboard that you got for me half a lifetime ago. (Do you recall this?) I love that thing and I am reminded of you every time I look at it. Thanks, Bud. -Brian

    1. Brian, of course I remember it. Glad you still have it and enjoy it! Hope all is well with you and your family.
