Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

(Sept. 30) -- Everyone's favorite modern Stone Age family and friends are celebrating their golden anniversary. "The Flintstones," America's first prime-time animated sitcom, first aired on ABC-TV on Sept. 30, 1960.

For six years, the show almost everyone thought was an animated imitation of "The Honeymooners" entertained not just kids, but primarily adults. And that was the point of the Hanna-Barbera production -- to create a more adult-styled cartoon.

One of my favorite cartoons. I was introduced to that from several sources as a kid.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

I never really liked Flintstones and I never really got why people liked it so much. In the 60s it was a big deal but when I was a kid it was old garbage and nothing compared to something like Thundercats.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

It's not going to be too long before Jetsons turns 50. We had two Flintstones specials at one point: I Yabba Dabba Do and its follow-up, Hollyrock-A-Bye Baby. Those were the last that the Flintstones creators ever did together.

You know it's not hard to figure out if you already know my age right? But, I was an 80s kid. I grew up with all those awesome games and cartoons.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

Sometimes people like to do the decade before them as well. Wasn't an insult I was actually curious.

I like the Flintstones but it gets old fast.

Hey, 80's kids remember some things that kids from previous groups would have missed out on as adults.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

Ahhhh, the memories. I loved the Flintstones when I was a kid. I remember when they met the Gruesomes and I remember when they met the Jetsons as well. That was one of the first cartoons I introduced my kids to when they got old enough.

Happy bday Flintstones! :P I watch this on Boomerang sometimes, I remember watching re-runs when I was reallly young. Google has something on the Flintstones, that's why I knew it was today.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

It's funny. They used to have two Flintstones themed amusement parks here where I live but they are both long gone now. Used to love going to them as a kid. Especially the one in Kelowna.

Re: Yabba Dabba Doo! 'The Flintstones' Turns 50

I always liked The Flintstones. Why, you ask? Because... "They're a modern stone age family."

Actually, I grew up watching them nearly every day after school. There was always some channel playing them during the afternoon.

I know that after a while the episodes can seem to be a bit repetitive, but for me it's like coming home to see old friends. I just never tire of watching Fred get dumped out of the window by their sabre-toothed tiger/house cat. Now, to turn on the tv and see (nearly any time of the day) The Flintstones playing somewhere, on some channel always leaves me feeling a bit nostalgic.

With that said, and even though I like The Fnintstones, my favorite toon of all time would probably have to be...

Popeye, da' man...
