Meet the Flintstones – Again. New Bedrock series promises to be a yabba dabba doo good time!

The Flintstones with grownup Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm

Fox is teaming up with Warner Bros Animation and executive producer Elizabeth Banks to bring back the Flintstones classic animated series in a new adult cartoon titled Bedrock. The story will be set 20 years after the 1960’s series and instead of centering around Fred, will focus on an adult Pebbles Flintstone. As for Fred, well, we’ll be seeing a version of Fred that is nearing retirement. Executive producers for the show said:

“The Flintstones are the first family of primetime animation. Elizabeth and Lindsay have a brilliant take on these characters, and Fox and [Banks’ company] Brownstone are the perfect partners to bring them back to primetime. This is going to rock (sorry).”

The Flintstones aired from 1960 through 1966 on ABC and was notable as the first primetime animated series. But this won’t be the first spinoff from The Flintstones. The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show spun off from The Flinstones on the CBS Saturday Morning lineup in the early 70s and depicted a similarly grown-up version of Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble.

The Flintstones theme song lyrics

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
Have a yabba dabba doo time
A dabba doo time
We’ll have a gay old time
The Flintstones!
Flintstones, meet the Flintstones
They’re the modern stone age family
From the town of Bedrock
They’re a page right out of history
Someday, maybe Fred will win the fight
Then the cat will stay out for the night
When you’re with the Flintstones
Have a yabba dabba doo time
A dabba doo time
We’ll have a gay old time
We’ll have a gay old time (yeah)

Here’s hoping we get to see The Great Gazoo again!
