Today is the 50th anniversary of The Flintstones!

Growing up, I used to love The Flintstones. My room was even decorated in that theme and I believed that, some day, I'll have a pet dinosaur too. I named my dolls Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm. I wore one-sleeved dresses inspired by Wilma. Viva Rock Vegas was my favourite movie and Bedrock was a place I believed really existed. Why the trip down memory lane? Well, today is the 50th anniversary of the Flintstones and I couldn't help but reminiscing over my childhood days.

Remember Fred and Wilma Flintsone? Or their neighbours Barney and Betty Rubble. Remember the little 'alien' that appeared to Fred and Barney, called The Great Gazoo? And their transport that was either powered by their feet or built on top of a dinosaur? Ah and who can forget Fred's bowling skills! Who ever wrote and brought Flintstones to life, sure had an extremely detailed imagination.

Pebbles that just never seemed to grow any bigger.

Fred inspired many costume parties...

... while Wilma and Betty inspired the runway.

Viva Rock Vegas!

Long live the Flinstones. Yabba-dabba-doo!!



  1. "Yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyabba-dabba-doooooooo!"

    Flintstones... Meet the Flintstones,
    They're a modern stoneage 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,
    have a yabba dabba doo time,
    a dabba doo time,
    we'll have a gay old time
