I had 1/2 an ear listening to the news and I just heard the Flintstones are 50 years old today! Whooo Hooo happy birthday! I also learned something else, this was the first prime time cartoon, and also it was based on the Honeymooners. I went looking for a clip to post here and there are many, many available on Youtube. I chose this one to illustrate how much our society has changed--a commercial done by the Flintstones advertising cigarettes!
And here's a picture from the Honeymooners.
