The Flintstones Reboot

Coming to a television set near you is a retooling of the classic animated cartoon The Flintstones. It was announced today that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane will be helming the relaunch of the series. Production is expected to start in late 2011 with a planned air date of 2013.
The original Flintstones ran in prime time from 1960-66. Another thirteen television spin-offs ran mostly in the 70s and 80s. But it was the classic episodes which had the most success. Until The Simpsons came along The Flintstones had the record for longest running prime time cartoon at six years. The show continues to run in syndication and for years was a lunch time tradition for many children.
Seth MacFarlane started his career at Hanna-Barbera studios, the same house that first launched the TV series.
No subject has been beyond MacFarlane's scope for ridicule and lampoon, Flinstones included.

Do you think they will "reboot" the Flintstone theme lyrics as well or stick with these classic lines?

Flintstones. Meet the Flintstones. 
They're the modern stone age family. 
From the town of Bedrock, 
They're a page right out of history.

Let's ride with the family down the street. 
Through the courtesy of Fred's two feet.

When you're with the Flintstones 
you'll have a yabba dabba doo time. 
A dabba doo time. 
You'll have a gay old time.

The Flintstones


  1. Oh, I loved The Flintstones! I grew up watching them.

  2. I would watch it everyday at noon. My grade 2 teacher would turn on the TV during lunch time so we could watch.
