I  loved "The Flintstones" I always felt bad for Fred because he was looking to for a get rich quick scheme to make his wife happy.  The show was on my TV screen every Saturday morning!   Even my Dad loved it.

After a day at the rock quarry, Fred and Barney arrived home in a vehicle with stone wheels and a fringe on top. Their lives revolved around their home, friends, and leisure activities: a world of drive-ins, bowling, and their "Water Buffalo" lodge. A baby dinosaur and a saber tooth tiger replaced the family dog and cat. In 1962 and 1963, Pebbles and Bamm Bamm appeared as the daughter and adopted son of the Flintstones and Rubbles respectively.
